Interior Designer and Decorator
You may have seen other advertisements for interior designers and interior decorators. But what is the difference between a designer and a decorator?
A decorator can provide some of the same services to their clients, in that both focus on aesthetics style and mood of a home. However, it is at this point that the similarities end. There is no law that requires interior decorators to be licensed or regulated by the state. Anyone can claim to be an “interior decorator”, including upholsterers, house painters, and other trades people.
A designer, on the other hand, must meet strict standards set by the California Council for Interior Design Certification (CCIDC) in order to become certified and licensed in interior design. To be certified we must possess a minimum of 8 years combined interior design education and experience and pass a strict exam developed and monitored by the CCIDC board. We are also required to complete continued education to stay accredited and current.
Kathleen Barlow is also a member of the Temecula Valley Woman's Club (TVWC). Kathleen has been a designer for the TVWC Holiday Home Tour numerous times over the years. Contact her today to set an appointment!
