The Ongoing Designers V Decorators War

The Ongoing Designers V Decorators War

What in the hell is this hatred of decorators that continues to permeate the interior designer community?

I'm an interior designer who passed the NCIDQ and the CCIDC. I was once a professional member of ASID. I was of the thought, back in the day, that by being a "professional" interior designer, I was better than a decorator. Not anymore. When we start to look down our noses at decorators who we deem not to be as good as us "designers", based on the education we have paid for, we are not better people.
