Hundreds of Design Dilemmas solved at IDS-11

More than three hundred of interior design dilemmas were solved at the 2011 Interior Design Show (IDS-11), January 27 to 30, where IDC hosted the popular consultation sessions, What's Your Design Dilemma? The consultation spaces were beautifully designed by ARIDO/IDC member, Monique Le Ray.

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. View images of What's Your Design Dilemma? at IDS-11.
