Hello Ohio North,

I hope you all are enjoying the holiday season. Sometimes the joy of the holidays gets lost in the stress of the season. Our minds can get over stimulated with the
crowded stores and constant activity. Fussing over decorating the house, shopping for gifts and cooking or baking until everyone is stuffed.

Our modern lives are already packed with go go go and multi-tasking as much as possible. It’s amazing the amount of contact and accessibility we have to be available at any time. We can instantly be connected by email, text, phone call, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and many more.
We need a break from the stimulus and the noise that can surround our lives. I hope you can unplug, disconnect, simplify, relax and recharge during this season. Get back to basics and center your mind.

I hope to see you all refreshed and ready for some wonderful events coming up in 2017. See the info below and happy holidays.

Consistent IDBI Scores Indicate Positive Growth for the Interior Design Industry

The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) has released the First Quarter 2016 Interior Design Billings Index (IDBI). Overall, design firms reported strong and accelerating business in March after a weak January and February. The March 2016 ASID IDBI value was 60.8, a positive upswing from the December ASID value of 45.3. The ASID indices are centered on a score of 50; above 50 indicates expansion while below 50 indicates contraction. Looking forward, the design community remains positive about the near-term outlook for the industry. The six-month business conditions index score of 63 for March is only slightly lower than its score of 68 for December and 66 for September. The consistency of these scores (above 50) suggests continued expansion for the design industry. Download the full report.
