Hundreds of design dilemmas solved at IDS-12

Published by Julia Salerno, January 30, 2012.

Hundreds of interior design dilemmas were solved at the 2012 Interior Design Show (IDS-12), January 27 to 29, where IDC hosted its popular consultation sessions, What's Your Design Dilemma?

Armed with questions, floor plans, pictures, and tile and wood samples, show attendees signed up for their free, one-to-one 15-minute interior design consultation. The lucky participants walked away with helpful sketches and a better understanding of the elements of interior design. Special thanks to the following members for volunteering their time to provide WYDD? consultations:
