Her constant and tireless work to make IDS Charlotte unified and engaged has been a direct result of her devotion of time and heart to our Chapter.  

    Not only was our Chapter recognized, but also three members from IDS Charlotte were recipients of their incredibly talented designs. 
    Melissa Lee, New South Home, was awarded winner of Kitchens $50k-$100K

    In addition to the DOTY Awards, we would also like to congratulate Starr Miller and her team, as Grand Prize Winners of "Traditional" Design at the Dacor National Kitchen Design awards featuring the Kitchen Design as showcased in the IDS Charlotte Showhouse!  Way to go Starr and her team!!

    As we continue moving forward with the challenges of meeting together, we are hopeful that we will see everyone soon!  In the meantime, let's continue to offer encouragement and inspiration to one another, which is the foundation of our amazing chapter.  

    Again, congratulations to everyone on making us one of the best!

    Have you heard about our newest initiative, The IDS List? Designed for the consumer eye, this interactive platform will feature the work of our members and will educate visitors on why and how to hire an interior designer. Most importantly it will include a searchable directory to help pair those looking for design services with IDS designers. To be included in the directory you will need to update your designer profile by clicking the link below!
