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 | Beall Barclay

While a 2003 renovation at Beall Barclay included bringing the Conference Room (furniture and finishes) into the 21st Century, this 2007 project may have been small, but it was just as important.

At only 430 SF, updating the existing Lobby at Beall was a interesting challenge for us.  You never get a second chance to make a first impression, and that's exactly what we focused on.  It was important for the new Lobby design to reflect the image of the local accounting firm.  All new furniture, finishes, lighting and a custom designed reception desk did the trick!  This is a great example of why a small space can be just as interesting as a large one.
