ALDesign is the only e-magazine for interior designers in Alabama, offering a look at the profession from every angle. Each issue focuses on important topics for both residential and commercial interior designers and strives to educate designers, students, educators, and consumers.


Fall is all about the harvest and thankfulness for the bounty.  We, as interior designers, have a  bountiful harvest: 

–an education with resulting skillsets for productive work & an ability to make a living

–trusting clients, many becoming trusted friends

–completed projects giving us positive feedback for our labor

–a sense of fulfillment for creating spaces that improve the quality of life for others

We are so fortunate!  How can we show our thankfulness for our bounty?  This ASID AL fall newsletter may show you the way.  It will feature volunteer opportunities available to us, the design community, to share our bounty with others in need.  We hope you are inspired to find a place and project to share your gifts with others….
