In California you need to be licensed to call yourself an Interior Designer or perform the business of an Interior Designer. What you are doing is actually illegal and you can get sued. Just because you like Interior Design does not mean you are a qualified professional.The only thing you can call yourself is an Interior Decorator. Without the proper education and experience it is illegal and unethical to represent yourself as a qualified professional. You are ignorant and spreading bad information.

Be careful with the advise you are giving as in many states is ILLEGAL to present yourself as an "Interior Designer" if you don't have a License, you will be fine..or you can go to jail. To call or present yourself as an "Interior Designer" you MUST be licensed, to be licensed you must take and pass the exam by the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) which requires at least a bachelor degree in Interior Design and at least 2 years on the job training to be able to take the exam. To be a Professional Member of the ASID you must be licensed by the NCIDQ. To be able to do REAL interior design work with contractors, architects, electritians, plumbers, and to be able to get permits, if needed, from a City, you MUST be licensed. A "designer" who doesn't have a license, even if she has a bachelor dregree, is NOT an "Interior Designer" is just an mere "Interior DECORATOR".

I'm in the second year of interior design and let me tell you is so fucking hard, I got no social life. Is like architecture just without deep mathematics in a more artistic approach. Before I joined this career I thought it was easier, more laidback but i was so wrong is not easy in fact challenging cause is so hands on it that u need to actually do all ur ideas material so fucking hard and time consuming hahahahahaa

What you said about qualifications actually makes me happy. In todays day and age you can learn so much and it is sad that you need a paper that states that you are qualified because over half of the time I found that people without qualifications do much MUCH better job in the field of IT/Designing/Coding and so on. I want to learn about interior/exterior designing since I spent over 8 hours on a computer anyway. And combining that with being a sysadmin would actually make my life a bit more fun.

Serifa, @SY is correct but to make it easier for you: An Interior Designer is a person who has a bachelor degree in Interior Design, has years of experience, had pass the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) exam and has an Interior Designer License. An Interior Decorator is any person with or without an Interior Design degree who doenst have the license to practice as an Interior Designer.

Interior designer is someone who plans, designs, and they also read blueprints, know building regulations and also inspection regulations and etc. Interior decorator is another word for home stager. they only focus on the decorating aspect.

Kate is sooooo right!!! But Lol my Architecture professors would disagree with the difference between an interior Designer vs Decorator. No Im not being offensive its just scarey here in Miami. If you don't have a degree you can't be called an Interior Designer now. And you certainly can't design commercial spaces. The design world here is so competitive and scary in Miami. They'll make you feel like you're not legit if you don't have an actual degree. But even after graduation you see that there's more to learn in the field vs school. I feel like they've created these difference between designer and decorator just to take our money. But alas I wouldn't get a job that pays decent if I didn't get the degree 😩.
catadhernandez (14 days ago)
There's always been the difference, the reason why now it's harder is because a lot of interior decorator takes advantages. Besides a designer knows more than just making a space pretty they are also in schools that are accredited by CIDA or IIDA etc.. As a designer I can tell you it is annoying when people tell you that you only make pretty rooms or don't take your career serious because they have this career confused with what a decorator do. Hope this help.

"Believe in your talent." That's like telling a shy person, "just talk to others." I don't mean to sound critical because it's well-intentioned advice coming from a nice person, but it's useless. I would go with "Build your skills." By building your skills, belief in your abilities may come as a result. Nonetheless, I enjoyed this video, and it's making me think more on my own journey as a home decorator, whether I want to keep it as a hobby or perhaps take it a step further.

Idk if people are going to see this, but I’m a sophomore and my school gives us a chance to take a program with careers that maybe you are interested, I’m taking construction bc in interior design Ik I have to work with a lot of measurements blueprint etc. Well I’m taking that class and for my science I’m taking physics and for math it’s just algebra 2 adding to that I’m going to take an elective of business, so construction will help me with interior design, so I’m going to a community college, and they offer interior design, so now that I’m going to now some of the “basics” it would be easier, I recommend also talking other “careers” that branch in with interior design :) also idk if this is confusion but it’s alright

You are not an Interior Designer. You are a Professional Decorator. Be more respectful of those who have learned a whole lot more about the full job of Interior Design. Your work is interesting. The videos are interesting. Live it all honestly. It's fine as is- without titling yourself incorrectly. 😊

Mare Kirk (2 months ago)
Interior designers are on par with architects, and have to know so many clearance and safety measures and laws about building codes. They’re trained in using professional computer drafting programs like AutoCAD, Revit, and SketchUp, which are industry standard for construction managers and architects. The interior designers I know spend most of their time using these programs to draft interiors, knowing where to place walls around windows and doors, knowing where power and water hookups and in and out exhaust systems are and designing around them. Their plans need to be so detailed that they can be handed over to builders and subcontractors and be executed to the detail without having to call the designer or make costly mistakes. Inches off on a sheet can screw up the entire process of building a space. The details of building codes, construction terminology, communicating with subcontractors and managing project timelines and budgets are more than half of the job of a professional interior designer. It’s so much more than selecting paint colors, tile, flooring, furniture and accessories. It’s no joke being an interior designer, and you have to be respectful of the people who invest so much into building both habitable and beautiful homes.
Donna M (2 months ago)
Self taught Professional Decorator is not a bad thing. She simply should not disrespect the profession she wants to use the name of. In watching these entertaining videos and having worked with Interior Designers I see errors that she should know better about. Even she states "go to school"- because there is a reason.

While I enjoy the majority of the Mr. Kate videos, this video is offensive to educated and qualified interior designers like myself. I watch these videos for inspiration, but there is no such thing as a “self taught interior designer.” Mr Kate is a great decorator, but any true interior designer would not be so negative about sitting for the national exam to become qualified.
Kayla Taylor (2 months ago)
the laws are different in California..anyone can call themselves an interior designer....maybe do some research before getting triggered... https://ccidc.org/
Beth Fleming (2 months ago)
+K W yes you are right, there can be a self taught designer if they take the time and use the correct resources and materials to educate themselves, which would be quite impressive and I personally applaud! I apologize for my ignorance in the previous comment. However, to someone who is properly self-taught or to someone who went to school for it, it is still humiliating that there are uneducated people calling themselves designers when they are really just decorators. That was the point of my initial comment.
K W (2 months ago)
+Beth Fleming Thing is, she encourages people to go to school and learn. She just explains that it's not the end of the world if you don't have the time or funds to take the exam. So many skills can be self-taught, even the complicated ones. Those who teach themselves enough can pass the exam and have the knowledge to back it up. They are designers, even though they didn't go to school. Same for when people go through the schooling, but can't/don't take the exam; they are designers, just not officially qualified - IF they have the knowledge to back it up. I'm not saying that everyone who teaches themselves a little is a professional designer. Some are just involved as a hobby and others may think they're more professional than they are. That said, Kate is ONLY saying that not taking the exam doesn't mean you can't be a professional designer, but that you should still go to school and learn the ins and outs of designing. An example is that there is a lot more to playing the piano than just pressing keys. Some train for years and know the ins and outs of it, whereas others teach themselves and know a lot about it, but aren't officially qualified. Neither is more professional than the other based off of that; one is just more qualified and formerly educated. You can share the career with others who are less formerly educated/qualified than you - provided they do actually have good knowledge of it because they've genuinely taught themselves, rather than just random people who furnish rooms with no knowledge behind it, just what "looks nice". You don't have to behave threatened or invalidated by people who have put in just as much time and effort as you, but taught themselves (extensively) and/or didn't take the exam. If they have the same knowledge as you, they aren't less of a professional designer, they're just less officially qualified.
Beth Fleming (2 months ago)
+Steph Exactly! What you said is spot on. The general public does not understand what a struggle it is for people to take business away from a true professional when that person has not done half as much to get where they are. It is extremely disappointing, but people who are not in this field do not understand this and that is the main reason I made this initial comment, to help them understand that just because someone can put a couch in their living room and hang a piece of art does not mean that they are a true designer!
Beth Fleming (2 months ago)
+K W I am absolutely not "invalidating" her career by saying what I did. Obviously they have succeeded well at what they are doing and I think it is great. My issue is with people calling themselves "designers" just because they furnish a house, when they don't truly understand what design is. Anyone can furnish a house, but a true designer takes into account how things go together, the scale, the textures, and so much more that no one understands. Design is part talent and skill, but it's also a large part education. In a way, people like these are "invalidating" educated and qualified professionals by insinuating that you don't have to go to school or take the exam to become a designer, when in truth they are not even designers.

Unfortunately, using the term interior designer is not regulated in the United States and so can cause a lot of confusion in the industry. Mr. Kate is not an interior designer but an interior decorator. She did not follow the proper channels to gain an education that focuses on the health and wellbeing of a space's inhabitants and while she may be a great businesswoman and have good taste, would not be hired as a professional interior designer. The reason that a certified interior design education along with certification is important is because interior designers deal with codes that pertain to the inhabitant's wellbeing.

BEWARE! There are two sides to interior design. In the U.S. anybody can call themselves an "interior designer" (except in Louisiana and D.C.). If you want to design/decorate peoples homes then you do not need anything but a pulse. These decorators can legally call themselves "interior designer" but cannot practice beyond single family homes where a building permit is required. However, if you want to be a professional interior designer who designs commercial spaces in which the user's health safety and wellbeing are paramount, you will most definitely need an accredited education and certification via an exam. In Canada the title is regulated. Be careful up there. This is a good video that better explains the profession of interior design https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEQdqZm0gNE

You’re not an interior designer. Interior designers put in hours of work for this learn building codes and how a house functions and learn every nitty gritty detail of a space. You are a decorator. You decorate a space, paint, furniture. A designer designs bathrooms and kitchens and knows how to build a house. You don’t know how to build a house.

Thank you! i am an interior disigner i kept listening to this woman thinking she doesn't know anything... in my collage we didn't even learn about decoration that much because it was considered a thing of personal taste... i mean i had to be tasefully done, obviously but it wasn't a subject of importance and it was the last thing we did, like cherry on top. where you put your hallway and how does it connect to rooms now that's important! natural light, where are the water sources, parting walls- how many is not enough and how many is too much... there are tons of stuff you have to think through before you can even come to choosing furniture... what kind of painting do you hang on your walls is the last thing you think about- if you even think about that. so yes i agree, she's not a designer.

Interior designers are more like interior architects, we deal with building codes, space planning, renderings, research, construction documents not limited to mechanical plans, demo plans, floor plans, structural plans, specifications, etc. Almost everyone that goes into interior design program goes in thinking they are going to be doing stuff like hgtv when they realize that a just a very small portion of a what we do. I know I did, now that I graduated it's practically insulting when people only think you decorate. Of course you can't blame them since the media misleads people and at the end of the day what people see is the visual aesthetic of a space. There is actually a debate within the interior design field of wanting to change interior designer to the name interior architects because of this. What she has described here is interior decorating, and there is nothing wrong with that, everything involves a form of skills and talent.

Hi Mr.Kate! I start my new job tomorrow as a design consultant at a furniture store where I live. They have an 8 week interior design program that I am excited for! I have always had a flair growing up for interior design where I have already helped with 3 homes. I also will be going to school for interior design. I just wanted to say I am a huge fan and I am so happy I stumbled upon your show. I was wondering if you ever come to florida at all. I would live to get in contact with you and pick your brain about some ideas I have. Thanks so much! Xoxo Brandi

I'm actually in college and it's my first year and I've already changed my major twice. I was required to go to this house museum and when we looked around it,it sort of sparked this interest I once had about becoming an interior designer. Right now I'm majoring in graphic design and I'm not sure if I have to necessarily major in interior design to be an actual interior designer,but your video really helped me! I love being able to be creative and work in other people's styles and seeing how they come together!

+David Flores thank you! It really does! I've been playing around with ideas and creating electronic visuals for my ideas most recently! My grandma is letting me design her bedroom, and I'm super excited to make her room look more colorful but also keeping a similar color palette to what she has now! Depending on how they like my design for the bedroom,I could possibly do a makeover for the living room!

I’m actually studying interior design and I cannot tell you how important it is to also be good at graphic design. Some classmates cannot present their ideas on a computer screen or through drawings and such so it’s really hard for anyone to get their point across. You need to have a good visual with graphic design in order to sell the idea you have for an interior space. Without this you won’t get far. Try to be as proficient as you can with adobe and then make the switch to interior design. It will make classes go by much smoother. Guarantee it!!!! Hope this advice helps!!

+Bibi Yol I've been thinking of making my own business for the longest time,but at the same time it's way too expensive to do. I do like graphic design but I don't want that to be my full time career. It's nice as a side job,but as an interior designer I would make so much more money and would be able to work with a diverse population of people with different styles and personalities.

OMG SAME!! I don’t know either I think I just might make a business with graphic design (side job) and interior design my main career 🤷‍♀️

Here are some tips for those of you considering the field of Interior Decorating/Design: First thing first- If you're going into this field know the difference between an Interior DESIGNER and an Interior DECORATOR. You cannot call yourself an Interior Designer without accreditation, in certain States/Provinces you can be fined for this. Second- you'll never do mood boards for clients if you're professional- you may get the odd client ask for one, but don't go into a meeting with a mood board unless you're in school and or presenting to a large group...It's all about renderings- get to know AUTOCAD or Sketchup Pro. Know your stuff! I worked for five years in a paint store selling paint, stain, wallpaper, furniture, blinds, fabric, custom drapery etc...It has elevated my ability to give sound advice, and clients respect that and seek me out because of that. I also worked for a year in a high-end tile store, designing bathrooms and kitchens with other designers and retail clients. This taught me a lot about harder textiles- including tile application, trims (Schluter) and what looks good together and what doesn't. It's also super beneficial to have a customer service background. It will only help your career. I find that's where people lack skills, not in design aesthetic, but knowing how to handle clients-specially difficult ones- and build a rapport with your clients. Learn building codes, and how to read blueprints. Also, I see a lot of Designers/Decorators with really bad math skills- learn how to calculate sqft and how to take measurements. I also find knowing how to calculate yardage required for fabric projects and wallpaper a helpful tool. Its made things easier for me. You're never going to graduate and be a full-on Designer/Decorator right out of the gate, so you might as well work part-time in a place where you're going to learn practical skills that will only help you in your career. Look at local decorating stores like paint stores, window covering stores, furniture etc. I also worked in Film as a set decorator, it wasn't glamorous at all- and the days were very long- I wouldn't recommend this path unless you're okay with being married to your career. I'm 31 now and I spend my entire twenties educating myself and setting myself up for a successful career by continuing with my education even after graduation. Only now am I able to finally work full time (comfortably) as a designer- which is rare in my city. Those of you looking to start upon graduating, try and get into work with a big builder/contractor company. Oh! And Network, network, network! Best of luck XOXO
