Interior Design vs. Interior Decoration

At the IDC, we try our utmost to get things right and certainly we’re delighted that we’ve already got some very satisfied members.

However one thing that has been brought to our attention is the issue of whether we should really be called the Interior Decoration Club instead of the Interior Design Club

Design or Decoration? We checked on the dictionary definition. We found that interior design is the trade of planning the layout and furnishings of an architectural interior while interior decoration is the planning and execution of the layout, decoration, and furnishing of an architectural interior.

Clear then. The difference seems to lie in the execution of the planning. Except that the definition, tellingly, then went on to say “Also called interior design.” Hmmm.

Actually, whatever your interpretation of interior design or interior decoration, contact us and we’ll do our best to help.
