Is there a difference between an “interior designer” and an “interior decorator” ?

Many people use the terms “interior designer” and “interior decorator” interchangeably, and while there are similarities in these professions, they differ in critical ways. As we have been working to develop our brand and focus our company’s mission, we have found it necessary to clearly distinguish the two for ourselves and for our clientele.

“Interior design is the art and science of understanding people’s behavior to create functional spaces within a building. Decoration is the furnishing or adorning of a space with fashionable or beautiful things. In short, interior designers may decorate, but decorators do not design.” (NCIDQ, 2012)

It is through this concept that we have developed out slogan: Beautiful. Functional. Custom.  As an interior design firm, our focus is on functionality as well as aesthetics. We take into account our client’s lifestyles and choose creative solutions that are beautiful yet functional.  Though custom products, we can focus on the design and functionality elements without sacrificing beauty.
