What Are The Real Effects Of HGTV and Houzz On The Design Industry?

Although I prefer to lurk in online groups as a rule—unless I run them—I recently saw a thread about a publication I used to love and it’s offer for cheap design services so I found myself chiming in.

Is Your Interior Design Firm A Good Citizen?

I hope your 4th of July (Canada Day for those of you who live in the North) was spectacular and that you took a moment to think about how lucky you are to be free to run a business that is an expression of what you were called to do. Philanthropy and social responsibility are important […]

My Interview With Kelly Hoppen

In Branding Visibility By Kim Kuhteubl

Most designers are educated enough about the design process to know that getting published is an important part of building their brand.

Branding, Visibility And Money For Interior Designers

If you ask an interior designer who their ideal client is, most will tell you it’s an affluent one.  The trouble is that this kind of broad spectrum marketing isn’t effective when it comes to selling their interior design services.  Warren Buffet, Paris Hilton and Kobe Bryant are all affluent but if you market to […]

When The Rubber Hits The Road

In Branding Visibility By Kim Kuhteubl
