We Hit the Streets in Birmingham to Hear What The Public Thinks Interior Designers Do.


  • Home "As a young designer, I began to seek mentorship and connection to others with whom I shared professional interests. There weren’t many of us, but those who were leaders in Birmingham / Alabama’s design community at the time took me “under their wing” and reached out to involve me in what we hoped would become a movement in our industry; sharing our passion, and recognizing Interior Design as a true profession . . . that was in the 1980’s. We chartered the Alabama Chapter of the Institute of Business Designers (IBD) which later became the International Interior Design Association (IIDA).

    I share this because throughout the years – (almost three decades and many chair races, galas, CEU’s, student days, tours, auctions and even storming the State Capitol!) - IIDA continues to fill that need for me: professional connection and mentorship. (Although now I am the mentor!) IIDA has been a life-line for me as a design professional. Through IIDA I have developed lasting friendships and made contacts that have resulted in both professional and personal gain. IIDA has fed my passion for design, inspired me as a professional, and given me opportunities to grow that I never could have experienced alone. For the purpose of elevating one another and our profession, the wonderful people in our design community join together through IIDA to laugh and work as a team. I look forward to IIDA events as I know that someone there will bring a smile to my face and help me remember why we do what we do. As a design professional, educator, and individual in this community, the opportunities and support that I have experienced through IIDA are immeasurable. " Jeannie Krumdieck, IIDA Educator, RID, Samford University

  • Home "I joined IIDA because I am passionate about design and wanted to be involved in the design community and an organization that values community involvement. IIDA offers a wide range of opportunities for networking, education and social interaction with all different aspect of design throughout our community. I wanted to be involved in reaching out to others to help them see the importance of design as well as helping keep our organization up to date on what other chapters throughout the country were doing and reaching out to as many people as we could. Our chapter is continuing to grow each year and has won several awards throughout the years as a small chapter and that is a testament to the members we have ." Laura Merchant, IIDA Interior Elements
  • Home "I first joined IIDA to be part of the community of interior designers in Birmingham. What I gained was so much more. I am so proud to be part of an organization that holds community involvement as a priority. Our board strives to make sure its member base has the most current information on recent legislature within interior design as a profession as well as staying current with CEUs."
