More on Attention to Detail . . .

Last winter, I participated in Mentoring Week, sponsored by the IIDA. The program pairs interior design students with professional designers for a day. Students tag along with their mentor, learning first-hand about the day-to-day practice of design. I spent my day with Hartman Design Group in Rockville, MD and came away with a finer appreciation for the job of interior designer.

Students who participate in Mentoring Week are invited to submit an essay on their experience to the IIDA Foundation, which administers the Lloy Hack Memorial Fund, which in turn offers a prize for the best essay. Last year I won! The topic of my essay was the importance of attention to detail in the practice of interior design. Because this is related to yesterday’s post, here is my essay. The essay was also published in the Fall 2005 issue of Perspective Magazine, the IIDA’s professional magazine.
