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. If you are seriously considering becoming an interior designer, check out this article on what interior design really is. https://www.qpractice.com/interior-design-vs-interior-decorating/

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.

+RogerTheCactus your collage sounds like it made you one heck of a disigner!
RogerTheCactus (23 days ago)
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.

Your an interior decorator not a interior designer
Ami Alice (21 days ago)
+Billy's Angel an interior designer goes much deeper then just the decro part, that only counts for like 25% of what a interior designer does. 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.

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'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!
David Flores (1 month ago)
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.

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

Alexis Jarman (1 month ago)
Cassidy Sullivan Hi, fellow Hoosier here! Being an interior designer is totally possible here in Indiana. However it probably wouldn’t be the same type as what Mr. Kate does, which is more decorating rather that creating a space from scratch. Here there’s opportunities in architecture, design, and planning. There is a need for interior designers and decorators but due to its cost most people decorate their space themselves. That being said, you can definitely work in architecture, home planning, remodeling, office designers, or even make furniture (I say this specifically because I know iupui has interior design degrees as well as furniture design). As long as you can get an education (not necessary in design) and build a portfolio (especially if you want to be self employed) you are set!
Stephanie Garcia (3 months ago)
I LOVE Mr. Kate and her creativity, BUT this video is deceptive: Mr. Kate's father is the CEO of STARZ and a multi-millionaire. She has more resources and connections in the industry than many of us will ever have. Not to diminish her talent at all, because she is amazing. Just pointing out that it is not as easy as she makes it sound, especially to become an actual licensed designer. That requires years of school and interning. To say that I can wake up tomorrow morning and call myself a interior designer without education is not only delusional, but it is illegal. Again, I don't want to come off as sounding like a hater, this is just a disclosure before you quit your job and move to LA.

Siri Hanson (3 months ago)
Hey Mr. Kate! I really love you and everything you do, but this is really frustrating as an Interior Design student. There is a widespread misunderstanding that interior decorating and interior design are the same thing, and they’re not. To become an actual licensed interior design you need to have 4 years of education in a CIDA accredited program and two years of workforce experience before you can even take the certification exam that is multiple days long. Please consider this when you call yourself an interior designer!
Roquell Millington (2 months ago)
+Siri Hanson no one is "using" anything you say for any agenda whatsoever! Interior designers DO NOT structurally design a space or building, there are contractors and architects who work along with them who are responsible for the structural integrity of a space. The interior designer may contributed creatively to the overall design of a space, but they don't execute that on their own. Hence my very remark about the chandelier as your point about public 'safety " is a reach!! In my previous comment I intentionally mentioned that my opinion on this has to specifically do with interior design and other such creative fields, so your doctor point is well...pointless! I mean she very clearly explained the difference between an interior designer and decorator, which is in fact the KEY difference between the two. That's it! We do not agree and that's all good! Have a blessed day!
Siri Hanson (2 months ago)
Roquell Millington hang a chandelier too loose? Lol so that’s my point, that’s where these misconceptions are in play. If you think hanging a chandelier is interior design, then you’re really mistaken. By your argument doctors don’t have to go to med school, and lawyers don’t have to pass the bar. You are diminishing the value of this profession because you’ve still got decorating and design as the same thing in your head. Nothing else for me to say to convince you, but don’t use my comment as a way to devalue the importance of title acts and accreditation and the values they play, and the profession of interior design as a whole. Enough said.
Roquell Millington (2 months ago)
+Siri Hanson public safety? What's she gonna do hang a chandelier too loose? OK. Her being qualified is at the very least "debatable" especially in this field. In today's day and age, there's no such thing as "trade secrets" anymore. We are in the age of free education and anyone with the drive and passion can be just as "qualified" as the one who spends years and thousands to be "certified" Really antiquated!
Siri Hanson (2 months ago)
Roquell Millington “the almighty dollar...” of course the education system and and paying large quantities to further your education is flawed in many ways, but my point is she just isn’t qualified because she hasn’t gone through that extensive education. It is literally a matter of public safety, which is why the accreditation exists in the first place. You wouldn’t want random people who just call themselves architects building the massive buildings you step in to and take for granted that it is safe. It is the same for interior design (often called interior architecture), but because of the misconception that interior design and interior decorating are the same thing, people don’t tend to understand that. These regulations and accreditation laws don’t exist simply to place people on a higher pedestal because they paid- they exist because it is a matter of public health and safety. And the whole point of my initial comment was to try and bring to light these profound differences, and with that people can chose the path that suits them the best. Nothing was ever said to diminish Mr. Kate and all her and her team do.
Roquell Millington (2 months ago)
+Siri Hanson and there you said it...always comes down to the Almighty dollar! Unless people get sucked into a system to shell out cash to learn from a formal school institution then their skill, equal and sometimes superior to those who do is diminished! Like I said... Semantics and we need to move on from this!
breannaelaine21 (3 months ago)
I'm sure someone else said this already, but your definition of interior designer vs. decorator is absolutely incorrect. An interior designer has education, accreditation and a thorough knowledge of legal building codes in the state in which they practice. An interior decorator does not require an education. Both are great but it's like a nurse and a doctor, if you are a nurse you shouldn't call yourself a doctor.

As an interior DESIGN student MYSELF I beg you to stop calling yourself a designer just cause it sounds better. You are NOT an interior DESIGNER! You're a decorator!

+Tatiana Costa can you tell us more about it? like what is the main task that interior designers do, that differs from decorators?
Tatiana Costa (2 months ago)
+Roquell Millington that's the thing. We won't be doing the same. Interior DESIGN is not interior DECORATION. There's a lot more to it than decorating a space. My problem lies exactly in the education of the public who ear her saying she's a designer and believe design is the same as decorating. And for that they won't even consider hiring a designer for the work they need and will go to someone else. Because they don't realize our education isn't on choosing furniture or picking color combinations for their house. It's actual architectural and actual designing of every little detail that goes into making a space. It's solving problems not hiding it and making it look good. I am not criticizing her work, it's as much valid as mine or an architect or an engineer or even the painter and builders. But they're not the same.
Roquell Millington (2 months ago)
No wonder y'all salty! I guess she's naturally talented and went after her dreams! You could all be like her if you wanted yo but hey! You'll be doing exactly what she's doing... That makes her an Interior designer. Period

You can learn to draw though! I shit you not, drawing is not something people are born doing. Binge youtube drawing videos and practice along. Fill sketchbooks. Take a class. Learn to draw simple basic shapes, then make them 3D. Learn perspective and proportions. You can definitely see an improvement in no time!

I never comment on anything but I have to agree with everyone who says she is an Interior Decorator NOT a designer. I am currently a Landscape Architecture student and it is also illegal to call yourself one if you don't have a degree from an accredited program or a State License. Mr. Kate is an extremely talented decorator and creates amazing spaces, but she really shouldn't call herself an Interior Designer.

Kaetlyn McDonnell it is Not illegal. Anyone can say they are a designer they just can’t say they are accredited. .
Kaetlyn McDonnell (4 months ago)
Hey, I completely agree with you. I am an interior design student right now and while I love Kate’s decorating, she does not have the legal accreditation to be a legitimate Interior Designer. As an interior designer you must pass intensive exams about following architectural codes, ergonomics, and space planning, as well as picking functional and aesthetically pleasing materials for a space. While it is not as technically intensive as architecture school (that focuses on the structure of a building) It entails four years of learning all of the said information above as well as all the computer programing skills like Autocad, Revit, Lumion, Sketchup and more. I love mr kate, but I have to say that she would never be hired by a firm or be a design lead for a firm because of lack of credentials and schooling.

Holy Crap. Literally TODAY I was like I need to just dive into this. I keep trying to do things I'm not passionate about, but I've always been OBSESSED with decorating, but sometimes shit goes so sideways so it makes me insecure. I want to learn more and hone my craft. Maybe you can check out my crap that went sideways on my blog, but still turned out pretty damn awesome if I say so myself. LMAO! Any advice on how to finally figure out what I'm supposed to be when I grow up...would be welcome. Never mind I'm rounding up to 50 soon. ;) www.thechristinebaker.com

Hi lovely! First of all- pat yourself on the back for creating something at all! A lot of creative people don't make it that far.. I've been an interior designer for a while now and decided to share my experience with others so started a youtube channel. Feel free to come over and check it out. Hopefully you'll get some more inspiration for your future adventures :D - SPACE FOR EDIT -- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx-z-AR8ldVw4FZf9prUD_g

Im in school for interior design & we barely decorate its all about making floor plans & designing spaces using autocad & revit to please the clients needs. You can either do commercial or residential design plus learn about the building codes for both. We have whole classes about lighting, drafting, autocad/revit/adobe products, and much more. Its a lot of hard work & you need to be driven and passionate about it

Going to Home Goods and IKEA doesn’t make you an interior designer. Can you map out a damp course, layout internal fire doors and exits on a architectural plan and draw elevations to scale? People who have actually trained can do this and work with architects regularly. Picking a fluffy cushion and wicker basket isn’t cutting it, sorry just being honest.

What about joey? You state that an interior designer needs to know how to deal with the structural properties of a building, and, I mean joey does most of the building work. Also, she works with someone else, so I guess they have to spilt the job into two parts: building and working with the layout, and adding the decor side of it all. But Eva, I'll admit ur comment gave me some insight on what interior designers REALLY do. So I thank u on your behalf

If people want a "professional" interior designer they can ask for one if they don't just don't choose mr.kate my gosh
Marielle Lavelle Bandong (4 months ago)
Also agree with your statement Eva. There’s no such thing that could make you an instant Interior Designer, it takes us years to study it then she’ll just brand her self a “self-taught Interior Designer” like no way!
