This exam tests interior designers on building and fire codes, and the health, safety and welfare of occupants. Aesthetics does not play a role on this exam.
Architects: don't call yourself an architect unless you're licensed. No for real, it's illegal. Also, don't shy away from working with designers. They are specialized in the psychology of space…who doesn't want to work with that?
Have you ever considered hiring an interior designer to help decorate your home? Today, we're looking at the pros and cons of hiring one and if it's really worth your money.
Being an interior designer involves more personal interaction and deep psychological understanding than any field that I have ever explored. Architecture tends to involve more arrogance and less objectivism while interior design can be deeply introspective and personalized to a client's every need. Don't get me wrong: I love architecture. I love many architects. However, it's hard not to be bitter when insanely intelligent and hard-working designers everywhere are being downgraded to decorator status, and much of this title-slinging comes from architects as much as it does clients and peers.
