1. What is the difference between an Interior Designer and an Interior Decorator?

The professional interior designer is qualified by education, experience and examination to enhance the function, safety and quality of interior spaces.  Interior design combines knowledge of building codes, critical and creative thinking, communication and technology for the purposes of improving the quality of life, increasing productivity, and protecting the health, safety and welfare of the public.  The information included in this link is quite helpful http://catalystsdr.com/2010/03/interior-design-as-strategy/ .

2. What is your billing structure?

We typically bill either by the hour or a “Not to exceed” flat fee.  Please contact us to discuss billing options.

3. What does “Registered Interior Designer” mean?

Arkansas is a title act state.  A title act regulates the use of a title, such as “registered interior designer” or “certified interior designer.”  Different states have different titles.  A few title acts grant interior designers permitting privileges that enable them to submit their drawings to building departments for permits.

FEATURED PROJECT | University of Arkansas Bookstore

Renovating the Union Bookstore at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville was an exciting project for the design department as one team member is an alumni.  In 2002 we were given the opportunity to create an updated, fresh image for the Bookstore.  This design included not only new finishes, but also reallocation of office and storage space and redesign of the cashwraps and information desk.

We designed the new cashwrap to flow with the traffic to maximize the store's efficiency and allow an important line of site for the employees.  The highlight of the project is the University Crest logo design that was laser-jet cut into the new rubber entry flooring, creating a unique and personal focal point.
