Welcome to the American Institute of Interior Design (AIID) and thank you for your interest in our Interior Design Program. I believe that investing in your education is the best gift you can give yourself, and will allow you to keep pace in an ever-changing world as you strive to realize your dreams. What better field is there to study than Interior Design? I feel that the need for creative and talented Interior Designers will always be in demand, regardless of which cycle of the economy we are in. Whether a client is moving into a new “McMansion” or wants to fall in love again with the home they already own, Interior Designers will always be needed to help their clients realize the interior of their dreams!

What does Interior Design mean to me? Interior Designers enhance interior spaces to optimize functionality, aesthetics, and ensure the well-being of occupants. Outstanding design accomplishes these objectives, as well as inspires an intangible emotion when just the right combination of elements are brought together. It cannot be described simply by arranging furniture, choosing fabrics, and picking colors. Great Interior Design is about evoking an intended emotion and creating balance to an interior space. We at AIID are passionate about this field, and look forward to providing you the best Interior Design education possible. Our curriculum has been created to provide you with real world, hands-on training that, when combined with your individual talent, will set you on an exciting and rewarding career in the field of Interior Design. I believe that life is too short to settle for a career you are not passionate about! Contact AIID today to see how we can help put you on-track towards a great career in Interior Design!
