The big "boards" of interior design. It requires an interior design degree and nearly two years of experience. For Michele, that was in 2005. Now almost 8 years later she has agreed to bite the bullet and submit herself to the exam. For her, it's less about the credentials and more about the continuing education. Clients will only benefit from the up-to-date and relevant knowledge that will be crammed into her head over the next six months. Good luck!!
