Hi Kate! My name is Cassidy, I’m 13 and from Indiana. Nobody here really care about interior design like people do in California or other big exciting places. Do you think I could still work as an interior designer from here? What are some tips you have about that?

I LOVE Mr. Kate and her creativity, BUT this video is deceptive: Mr. Kate's father is the CEO of STARZ and a multi-millionaire. She has more resources and connections in the industry than many of us will ever have. Not to diminish her talent at all, because she is amazing. Just pointing out that it is not as easy as she makes it sound, especially to become an actual licensed designer. That requires years of school and interning. To say that I can wake up tomorrow morning and call myself a interior designer without education is not only delusional, but it is illegal. Again, I don't want to come off as sounding like a hater, this is just a disclosure before you quit your job and move to LA.

Hey Mr. Kate! I really love you and everything you do, but this is really frustrating as an Interior Design student. There is a widespread misunderstanding that interior decorating and interior design are the same thing, and they’re not. To become an actual licensed interior design you need to have 4 years of education in a CIDA accredited program and two years of workforce experience before you can even take the certification exam that is multiple days long. Please consider this when you call yourself an interior designer!

I'm sure someone else said this already, but your definition of interior designer vs. decorator is absolutely incorrect. An interior designer has education, accreditation and a thorough knowledge of legal building codes in the state in which they practice. An interior decorator does not require an education. Both are great but it's like a nurse and a doctor, if you are a nurse you shouldn't call yourself a doctor.

I never comment on anything but I have to agree with everyone who says she is an Interior Decorator NOT a designer. I am currently a Landscape Architecture student and it is also illegal to call yourself one if you don't have a degree from an accredited program or a State License. Mr. Kate is an extremely talented decorator and creates amazing spaces, but she really shouldn't call herself an Interior Designer.

Month ago
Kaetlyn McDonnell
Kaetlyn McDonnell

Hey, I completely agree with you. I am an interior design student right now and while I love Kate’s decorating, she does not have the legal accreditation to be a legitimate Interior Designer. As an interior designer you must pass intensive exams about following architectural codes, ergonomics, and space planning, as well as picking functional and aesthetically pleasing materials for a space. While it is not as technically intensive as architecture school (that focuses on the structure of a building) It entails four years of learning all of the said information above as well as all the computer programing skills like Autocad, Revit, Lumion, Sketchup and more. I love mr kate, but I have to say that she would never be hired by a firm or be a design lead for a firm because of lack of credentials and schooling.

Lego Fans it's illegal because you are signing legal documents that state you have graduated from an accredited program. It is basically confirming that you actually went to school for what you say you are doing. If she were to put "interior designer" in the contract she could be sued by not only the client, but also the state for lying about accreditation, trust me it's a huge deal.

Im in school for interior design & we barely decorate its all about making floor plans & designing spaces using autocad & revit to please the clients needs. You can either do commercial or residential design plus learn about the building codes for both. We have whole classes about lighting, drafting, autocad/revit/adobe products, and much more. Its a lot of hard work & you need to be driven and passionate about it

Going to Home Goods and IKEA doesn’t make you an interior designer. Can you map out a damp course, layout internal fire doors and exits on a architectural plan and draw elevations to scale? People who have actually trained can do this and work with architects regularly. Picking a fluffy cushion and wicker basket isn’t cutting it, sorry just being honest.

What about joey? You state that an interior designer needs to know how to deal with the structural properties of a building, and, I mean joey does most of the building work. Also, she works with someone else, so I guess they have to spilt the job into two parts: building and working with the layout, and adding the decor side of it all. But Eva, I'll admit ur comment gave me some insight on what interior designers REALLY do. So I thank u on your behalf

"The name was inspired by the fact that I used a lot of traditionally masculine things in my jewelry, like nuts, bolts, and screws. I've always been fascinated by society's gender norms and I liked the idea of taking things that were innately masculine and turning them into feminine pieces of jewelry. With my lifestyle blog, also called Mr. Kate, the name transferred seamlessly since I like to challenge the notion of domesticity and prove that you can be a career girl and have a fantastic home, recipe arsenal, and closet!" https://www.marieclaire.com/fashion/tips/a6192/mr-kate-jewelry/

Mascheria perduenabbs Mascheria perduenabbs you clearly aren’t getting my point. Yes she has a gift & taste for decorating, and no one is invalidating that. But that doesn’t give her or anyone the right to call themselves an “interior designer” because she didn’t take interior design as a course in college. Im gonna give a situation: Let’s say i have a gift for debating and making my point across, does that give me the right to call myself a lawyer? No, right? Because in order to be called a lawyer, i have to go to law school. I am referring to your statement “just to have a paper for what?”. You don’t invalidate education & the years professionals spent in order to be called a degree holder. In this video, she is calling her self an “interior designer” when in fact she should just be called a “decorator”.

Legally she can only call herself an Interior Decorator. Legally you need a license and degree in Interior Designing to call yourself an Interior Designer. However, that doesn't mean you cant be self taught about things , have a natural talent and become a professional. In her case that's what happend. As far as coding etc...that's why you can work with a professional team who are licensed to follow through with your plan and check coding etc to execute plans!

Hi. I don't know if you will ever see this comment but right now I am 10 years old and when I was younger people always asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up and I really did not know but a while ago I figured it out. I took a career test like the one they give you in highschool and it was worth it because it said I was likely to get a job that is a like artistic/creative then a couple of months ago I realized I love to decorate and like remodel things then when I looked it up I found out it was called interior design and you said that the number one thing to do is go to school so I looked up colleges for interior design and wow they are so many to choose from all over the U.S. but the best part is that they are online so I can really choose which one I think will really give me the education I want without having to move across the country.

I think you should title this video: "How To Become A Self-Taught Interior Decorator" because a lot of us schooled + trained designers are insulted by people using the term 'designer' so loosely when describing themselves to others that way, as if alluding to their non-existing credentials. To be honest, some designers are offended by other designers who attended/graduated from an unaccredited school. It can be a big deal. Also, calling yourself a designer can be deemed deceptive to your clients, if they are under the impression that you are technically educated and professionally qualified. For people who really want to get into the profession, I would say: attend a FIDER/CIDA accredited school, major in Interior Design or Interior Architecture, get an internship (whether paid or unpaid), get involved with the student chapter interior design clubs, I.e., ASID/IIDA and work your ass off! With that, congrats on your subscribers and decorating success!

I think this is just snobbery. There is nothing you learn in college that you can't teach yourself. I think we should group everyone as 'Interior Professionals' - if you make a living off something and doing it to a high standard then I would call that individual a professional, regardless of qualifications. Creatives should be creative, that's the integral thing. Anything you can't do can be outsourced which a lot of decorators do, there's no need for all this snobbery. If you love all the technical stuff just become a quantity surveyor.

If ppl who did complete the procedure and getting paid then should Mind their business. Or go a step above and motivate those who have talent but not able to do the course of study to be like them for various reason. Ppl work hard no matter. Mr.Kate taught herself which they couldnt. It is more they are embarrassed for wasting time and money. Dont be. Some ppl have it naturally some have to train for it. Thats just life.

Very well said Bethany. I am an Interior Architect, studied, interned and licensed. This video answers all my questions and doubts of her work. There is more to making a space pleasing to the eyes.

You don't need to go to school for interior decorating but you do for interior design/architecture. Huge difference and people get confused by the two.

Jenna Miller college doesn't give you experience I have heard business owners say people out of college don't have practical experience and that's what their looking for. A doctor isnt a good comparison their degree is necessary because of what it involves which is A lot.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS! The reason I started mentoring interior designers to start their own businesses by using their own experience is because the existing industry is so secretive and makes the job look cryptic when it really isn't! Pretty much EVERYWHERE around the world (except for some states in the USA) you do not need a license to call yourself an interior designer and the title interior designer is not protected such as that of engineer or architect. Yes if you want to work on commercial interiors I would suggest getting a formal degree, however, they will still require YEARS of practical work experience which can be gained by working on domestic interiors (and for yourself rather than very low wages for someone else)! Love your show, good for you!

I get that having a busy lifestyle makes it harder to study and get a degree but I believe it would really up your game and your credibility. You even say it yourself, go to school, I unfortunately agree with some comments where it's a little bit insulting to those who have done that :/ Not only in the interior designer field but any field like makeup those "self-taught makeup artists" often don't actually know how to properly do makeup on others but only on themselves, which is fine but then don't call yourself that :/

No need to reply so aggressively, was I being aggressive? I appreciate the comment above for trying to explain it to me respectfully. Good for her for being able to build a business and be successful, honestly. I was only coming from a point of view of it could still be very beneficial and I was feeling bad for some of the people I've seen comment, otherwise I would have never commented that solely based on her video. Unfortunately any hater or jealous person could use that against her, that's where I was coming too about the credibility thing :)

What a joke. Thanks for discrediting a once respectable profession that so many people work so hard for. Painting a few walls and buying a new couch doesn’t make you an interior designer. You’re a DECORATOR. DESIGNERS are capable of much more that makes interior design meaningful and are held to immeasurably higher standards. Notice how she only decorates residential spaces? A commercial business would never hire her because she isn’t an interior designer and isn’t capable of doing the true design work. So, to call yourself an interior designer is not only an insult to those who have devoted their time, money, and energy into earning a degree and getting accredited but it’s illegal in most states without the proper certification. Sure you can DIY your way into becoming a cutesy little social media star who moves furniture around once in a while but to call yourself something you’re not is wrong. It pains me to see that young aspiring interior designers look up to people like you who don’t represent or encompass all that the profession is about and takes. It’s important that we help keep interior design a reputable and respected job so that those of us who worked hard learning, practicing, and doing it can remain proud of what we do.

jamierubyjane You too make some valid points as well, and that's funny you mentioned Pennsylvania I used to live there, but they to have put into effect to pass a law where you need to have a license, but I moved away for ten years now. No disrespect if you are going to school, and I hope you are very successful. But I can't do the loans anymore, and I have taken all of that into consideration because I don't just want to fluff pretty pillows for a living. Everything you have mentioned in your reply I am very well aware of, it's just that the state I live doesn't require a degree of any kind. I totally get that being a designer is also about the environment outside and inside. So when I call myself a designer it will be because all of those things in your reply I will have assessed about the project at hand. It is important to build a team whom also have experience with the afore mentioned aspects of design. But trust and believe if I could afford to drop 35k/year for the next four years I would, but I am going to work extremely hard to do it on my own. Since I am fortunate enough to live in a state that doesn't require a license. Good luck to you in the future. Have a great night.😊

Deidre Fultz i get your point but the definition of “interior designer” is not just a subjective common sense. The official definition of what an interior designer is by law is this: Is someone professionally trained to create a functional and quality interior environment. Qualified through education, experience and examination, a professional designer can identify, research and creatively resolve issues and lead to a healthy, safe and comfortable physical environment.” Interior Decorators are primarily concerned about the aesthetics of a space. Paint colors, wallpaper, fabrics, drapery, etc. are the main focus of decorating. Interior designers are also concerned with these elements, but we also take into consideration the safety, functionality and efficiency of the product we are specifying for a space. For example, we will specify a certain type of flooring that is aesthetically pleasing but will also take into account the acoustic quality of the material or the slip resistance, etc. One of the most critical differences between interior designers and interior decorators is education. Interior Designers have a degree from a 4 year program in Interior Design. Interior design education involves extensive study of building codes, space planning, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), emergency egress, fire safety, acoustics, etc. There are no formal educational requirements to call yourself an interior decorator. Also, in order to be a Certified Interior Designer, a designer must pass the NCIDQ exam (National Council for Interior Design Qualification).This licensing certifies that the designer is a qualified professional who has the background and schooling required to make complex decisions about interior spaces. In several states interior designers are required to have a license. In Pennsylvania, interior designers are not required to have a license. But i believe mr kate isn’t from pennsylvania & is from a state in usa, so legally speaking she shouldn’t call herself an “interior designer”.

jamierubyjane I am currently in the process of changing my career to becoming an INTERIOR DESINGER... And I am not going to take out another student loan to do it. I have common sense. What does that mean? First off, I know how to do my work to find out if I am in a state to see if it's mandated to have a license in my state. Which it's not. Secondly, I have the common sense to have master builders and Carpenters whom are insured and bonded on my payroll. Thirdly I have common sense to go to the appropriate offices to obtain necessary permits if needed for a renovation. I also have the common sense to have an architect on my payroll to double check my floor plans before I begin a renovation. I would have proper software for doing my drawings and floor plans. In other wards it's about being smart, and I already have a degree. I just need common sense, and the appropriate people in place. I get to be called an interior designer legally where in my state I don't need a license. I just need to be smart, do research, and above all have my paper work in order along with tax I.D's and other permits. I am good to go. What most people don't get is that if they don't know how to build an effective team to get the job done then I guess that's where the term decorator comes in, but if you truly know what your doing then you're a designer plain n simple.

Bronte Shannon hun, sorry to break it to you but there is a law that you shouldn’t call yourself an “interior designer” without being licensed. It is illegal in many states and countries. No one is stopping her & no one is discrediting the fact the she has an incredible taste for decorating because she is indeed a good decorator, but she has NO right to call herself an interior designer without having a license. She is an interior decorator, NOT a designer. Let’s just put it this way: let’s just say hypothetically im good debating and getting my point across & im politically aware, but that does make me a lawyer? Lmao of course not, i did not go to law school so I don’t have the rights to claim that I am a lawyer. That also goes with this profession, interior designers caters more than residential spaces like what she does. It’s disrespectful, not to mention illegal to call herself an interior designer. People are so fast to discredit those who take design school just because “it’s subjective”. Interior design is more than aesthetics and shopping. I hope to educate those who are ignorant towards this issue.

Bronte Shannon degrees, and licenses aren't just for a sense of achievement. They are qualifiers that let other people know that legally you know what you are doing. I understand that it is easier to skip something if you already have the "talent", but there are no shortcuts in life. The reason her name is known is because she was an actress. So her advice to others won't work for the average person. Maybe she can get by on name, and status, and skip education, but all the regular people out there won't be so lucky. Go to school and learn how to become an interior designer. It will be a great investment in yourself.

I understand where you are coming from, but Kate did not mean anything wring by this. Most people get a degree in Interior Design to broaden their knowledge and build a name. There is no law against calling yourself an Interior Designer if you do not have a certificate or degree, to be an designer in general you need to have creativity and be able to open your mind and picture an area and what you think will fit best for both the client and the space. What Kate has achieved is what most can only dream of, she has put a-lot of effort and hard work in for as to where she is today and that is no less than anyone who has a degree. Wouldn't you if people recognised your talent through putting yourself out there, take he opportunities and be grateful for it? Kate stated that she would have loved to get her degree but simply didn't have the time due to her dedication and commitment to her business. I just see it as why would you go and get the degree if you already have a business and name that is as successful as one that would be established by a person with a degree.... If that makes sense.

"How To Become A (Self-Taught) Interior Designer" ...wow... so screw the degree, the exam and the license. Awesome! Next time you should make one on how to become a self-taught surgeon because it'a a pain to go through the MCAT, the MD, the licensing, etc. A self-taught litigation lawyer would be awesome too. Screw pre-law studies, the JD and the bar exam, who needs that? Be self-taught and use fake licenses. If no one finds out, you won't go to jail.
