Maybe they really regret not going to arch school in the first place.


Although the work of interior architects sometimes overlaps with that of interior designers, the fields are not the same.

Int arch is just int des rebranded.


I thought architect was a protected term? People with degrees in architecture can't use the word but interiors people can????

Depends. It’s not a term I’ve seen used anywhere in practice. Seems it’s a marketing thing for int des schools.

Here in California, an interior designer (whether certified or not) can move around non-bearing partitions as long as it doesn't affect the building structurally and doesn't affect fire 7 life safety - as soon as either of those lines is crossed you need an architect. I suppose you could call this a difference between ID & IA.
