P.F. Chang's and Interior Design...

We celebrated my musical run tonight by going to P.F. Chang's, a new favorite of mine. Aside from the food, which is absolutely FANTASTIC, the restaurant is an interior design major's dream. It's just gorgeous...a must-see. So go check it out if you haven't already! We ate along with my family, which is always entertaining. I love them dearly. It's hard to imagine that in 2 or so years we will be moving on somewhere else. Kurt is looking into options right now for where we will go. We are really interested in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, where we both lived for some time. It's the perfect place to start a family, and I'm very emotionally attached. So we'll see what happens there. Now that my tummy is full and I've had my family time, it's HOMEWORK :( I'm still working on that window treatments notebook. Oh, add to that a handicap-accessible public bathroom space that will take lots of drafting time on the floorplan. on my soapbox: Interior Design is so much more than picking out colors and space planning. It involves technical drafting on the computer and by hand, detailed renderings and drawings that are very meticulous, measuring and memorizing TONS of information about textiles and codes, to name a few. It just really bugs me when people consider design an "easy" major, or just an accessory to the "Mrs." degree. I've gotten that before from people, and I would love to see them try a week of my classes. Granted, it's awesome that watching HGTV and reading Architectural Digest are aids to my education, but there's a lot more. So never call an interior design major a "decorator." We design. :)

a friend of mine told me about the designer/decorator comments once. she is an interior DESIGNER. i didn't know the difference until i was "enlightened".

kinda like some people think i am a dental assistant. ummmmm......no. i am a DENTAL HYGIENIST. i had to pass national and state board exams, unlike most dental assistants (who can be trained on the job).

sorry to get on my soap box.......but i understand.....

ha! i totally understand too. graphic DESIGNER involves alot of the same things, especially the measuring and drawing part. at least we can say we are artists though, right? ;-)
