hate New Year’s resolutions. I see them as just another way to set myself up for failure. But I heard someone on TV say they were going to choose, instead of a task, a single word to live by. Mmmmmm, intriguing! So in looking for a theme to write about in this Design Magazine issue the word “connect” resonated.
It’s what we do everyday isn’t it? We connect with our clients, then we connect our clients with good design and good products. In ASID we connect with fellow Designers, Industry Partners and Students. Connecting to new ideas and new people leads to knowledge and understanding. All of that leads to a strong and connected design community. We have many opportunities in our chapter to connect, from monthly meetings, to special events. No matter your experience, from seasoned designers to emerging professionals, there is something for everyone. Your board is working very hard to create exciting opportunities for you to come learn new skills, meet new people, and learn best practices. Here are a few upcoming things to watch for. Designer For Hire is premiering in January. This is a website based service whereby homeowners contact ASID for 2 hour consultations. They’ll be charged $75.00, which will be donated to a designated charity. Designers will be selected based on location and specialty. This is a nice way to give back to the community and get your foot in the door for possible further work. Sign up with Joanna Barker at firstname.lastname@example.org. iDod meetings have developed to focus on mentoring protégé relationships. Open to all members, but you must register to attend meetings, and commit to 1-3 month service in which you will be paired. Contact Alix Flamm email@example.com to register. March will be our first field trip monthly meeting. Details are being finalized, but let me just say…..bus trip! Watch for details. Jamie Garelli is heading our Social Media Committee and has set a year-end goal on our Instagram Account to 1,000. Please help him by submitting content to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our new sponsorship package is being distributed to our Industry Partners and will be available at every meeting. It’s a comprehensive package, which gives an overview of all our events and meetings for the year and makes it easy to choose which opportunities are available to you. Contact Richard Downs, IP Liaison Richard@stylebathonline.com or Kathy Booker Financedirector@caoc.asid.org with sponsorship questions. Don’t forget to mark your calendars for EXPO, April 13 at Hotel Irvine! So make your resolution to connect this year. We’ve made it easy. Participate in ASID! Adriel Cogdal, ASID

Holiday By Sue Rexroth ASID Chair
The 2016 ASID OCC Holiday Event was sponsored by Sub Zero Wolf at their beautiful Costa Mesa showroom on Dec. 21.
Working Wardrobes was the Charity of Choice for the event, and benefited from the generous donations received from those in attendance. Their pop-up shop of trendy accessories, including jewelry and purses was a success as designers were able to purchase a myriad of new treasures during the event. A big "Thank You" to Tracy Burge and Jennifer Pollard of Sub Zero who hosted a delicious buffet of prime rib and assorted accompaniments, including a delicious dessert bar. We would also like to recognize our wonderful IP's who sponsored the raffle prizes, including a $500 gift certificate to the Shade Store, a $590 certificate for sliding door hardware from Hafele USA, 2 $100 prizes from Nordstrom provided by Fashion Interiors, a $200 gift certificate from Fergusons, a 1-hour concierge service from the Steve Alt Design Group, as well as a beautiful glass vase from Working Wardrobes.

President Electâ€™s Letter
reetings and Happy New Year!
As the New Year arrives, so does the promise of a better year, golden opportunities, and brighter days.
We may all agree that 2016 was a weird year. From all that was (and still is) going on in
the world with so many terrorists attacks in many different countries, painful situation in
Syria, Brexit, and the U.S. Presidential Election, to the loss of so many great talents such
as Muhammad Ali, Prince, Leonard Cohen, David Bowie, George Michael, and Zaha Hadid, and the power of media and social media in quick distribution of such news, many of us couldnâ€™t wait for the year to end!
However, in 2016 the economy was better and stronger, clients were more comfortable spending money on their projects, and hopefully everyone had a successful year!
At ASID OC, we are looking forward to a promising year for our members with many opportunities to network, educate, expose and cooperate. Please support your chapter
by attending events and participating however you can. You can check the calendar of events on our website www.asidocc.org, stay up to date with all that is happening in the Chapter by liking and visiting our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/asidocc/ and get
a sneak peek on what we have been doing by following us on Instagram at
As always, please reach out to your Board of Directors with any comments, concerns or suggestions. We are working hard to build a great united chapter! Cheers to you and yours, Nazgol Seyedi, Allied ASID

GENERAL MEETING By Lauri Howell Programs Chair November marks our annual Membership Drive, which provides the opportunity for members to make new connections, as well as invites those within the industry to learn about the benefits of being a part of ASID. For the third year in a row, Dal Tile hosted our Membership Drive coupled with our General Meeting in conjunction with Sherwin Williams as they unveiled their Color Mix for 2017. Dal Tileâ€™s Showroom Manager, Linnea Graves pulled out all the stops this year, to create a successful event. From delicious tapas to the multitude of raffle prizes presented at the end of the evening, all in attendance felt Linneaâ€™s gracious hospitality. President Adriel Cogdal issued opening statements to an audience of over 300 in the slab yard, while Membership Director, Michele Prata, and Membership Chair Elizabeth Dâ€™Angelo highlighted what ASID had to offer and the benefits of membership.

Karen Galvin of Sherwin Williams presented their Color Mix 2017. With four fun color stories and inspirations, the Colors of 2017 came alive. In what Sherwin Williams deems a â€œNew spirituality, cultural flux, feisty self-expression and soulful nostalgia are combining to paint an emerging portrait of our shared future,â€? their trends for the coming year ranged from beautiful soft neutrals, to upbeat pops of saturated color and a little of everything in between. Closing out this wonderful presentation was a raffle where attendees were in for a treat with wonderful prizes, as well as a special thank you gift and award bestowed upon Linnea Graves, as this was her last ASID event prior to her retirement. We thank her for her generosity of spirit and support during her tenure at Dal Tile, and wish her the best in her future.

GENERAL MEETING By Lauri Howell Programs Chair
Walker Zanger hosted our October Meeting in Tustin. Attendees were able to enjoy the wide selection of luxury materials and slab yard, as we dined on delicious delicacies provided by the Lime Food Truck. This event kicked off the 2016-2017 board with the annual Get to Know You Bingo game, where attendees worked to match up fun facts with their new Board members and Chairs for this year. For this meeting we welcomed special guest, Alan Siegel, National Legal Counsel to ASID and partner at Levy Sonet & Siegel. His presentation focused on the importance of Risk Mitigation Techniques while reviewing ASIDâ€™s Portfolio of Residential and Commercial Design Agreements. In addition to reviewing contracts, Siegel provided a wide range of business suggestions to enable Designers to expand their profit margin, reduce difficult clients, and avoid costly errors. Thank you to Walker Zanger for this one of a kind evening, as well to Alan Siegel for sharing his vast wealth of knowledge with us. Additionally, we thank Derek Fisher, of FiberSeal, who managed the A/V for this presentation, as well as our photographer for this event Paul Fernandez of Paul Fernandez Interior Design.

A NEW DELIVERY SERVICE CATERING TO THE DESIGN INDUSTRY Bringpro, the region's premier on-call professional delivery and installation company, is dedicated to providing a unique and valuable service to the design community. Founded in 2015, we're proud to say that bringpro has grown quickly, as many designers regularly use our service to simplify their delivery and installation logistics. Leveraging technology to improve our customers' experience, bringpro has developed systems that allows designers to post their job requests online or through an Apple app. Additionally, customers enjoy real-time vehicle tracking with accurate ETA notices, so there never is a valuable minute wasted. Also, because bringpro offers installation services, helping with staging the home, or building furniture help is always available. Recently, bringpro assisted with ASIDâ€™s One Room, 12 Ways project, picking up from five different locations before delivering and installing all the items on location at the Stonemill Design Center. The assignment was requested one day in advance, and the designer was able to track the vehicle from each stop with text messages sent along the way. This freed the designers to focus on their project rather than waste an enormous amount of time orchestrating deliveries. We like to see ourselves as personal assistants who can deliver and install almost anything. On your terms not ours. The bringpro team understands that every
delivery experience needs to be professional. Whether it's a single pickup that must be handled immediately, or an entire house that needs to be packed up and moved, bringpro will complete the project quickly, efficiently and professionally. Bringpro is one delivery service that helps designers and their clients move forward in a fast-paced world, ahead of the pack. Like most great ideas, the inspiration for bringpro was born out of the need for a solution to a problem. One busy morning, Don Dicostanzo, a bringpro founding partner, purchased a large-screen TV, intending to enjoy a football game that evening. He soon discovered there was no way to get his new TV delivered the same day. The department store refused, and moving companies required advance notice. Faced with the upsetting choice of renting a U-Haul or phoning a friend with a truck, he realized what people where in need of: an on-demand pick-up and delivery service! Such a service could help everyone enjoy their purchases right away. To make it truly great, this service should own its fleet of vehicles and hire experienced delivery professionals. That day was the start of bringpro, a professional delivery and installation service. The company's mission is to connect people with their items faster (and more professionally) than ever before. Since our inception, weâ€™ve been successfully delivering the goods ever since.

INTERIOR DESIGN BLOGS YOU’LL LOVE AND WHY
By Kellie Davis, Ginger D. Interiors I know. You’re probably (and hopefully) too busy with work and likely barraged with more information than you can shake an umbrella at. With that, you also probably have an insatiable appetite for all that is new and shiny, fresh and fabulous, revived and glorious, and of course, unexpected and Avant-garde. It’s in every designer’s blood. Trying to control that appetite is like trying to say “no” to turkey at Thanksgiving (unless you’re a vegetarian, then it’s like…well, you get it). With so much information available, it’s easy to get caught in a clicking frenzy. That’s why blogs are so great. They tend to sum it up in a pretty little package (you know, like that little blue Tiffany box we hope Santa will leave under the tree!) that eases your navigation with quick, easy to peruse topics and images. So, without further ado, I’ve highlighted for you a few of my favorite blogs and why I love them:

As the designers of the future, it is our responsibility to ourselves and our profession to change the public perception of what Interior Designers are truly capable of. Design goes beyond what the eye perceives. It can have profound effects on both our psychology as well as our well-being. We can improve the lives of others with our knowledge and understanding of how design impacts lives. Whether you are designing for a private home or a commercial space, there is always opportunity to create a functional, well thought out design that doesn’t compromise visual appeal. Everything from flow to color can affect your perception of a space so every detail counts. Can you find ways to improve a pre-existing space that can better its accessibly or how one may see a space? Send us a photo of something design related that you think could be improved with a brief description of the changes you would make and you could be featured on our social media!

The first ASID iDOD meeting of the 2016-2017 term kicked-off on November 30th, 2016 at Expressions Home Gallery.
Attorney Kim Schumann, who has been our advisor over legal matters for a number of years reviewed and advised those in attendance on the ASID National Contract pertaining to California Law. Schumann covered a wide range of topics including the “Statute of Limitations” on our contracts, using the term “conceptual” on our drawings, and having our clients names on our PO’s to vendors. Attendees also learned the importance of spelling out our services, and disclosing any benefits we may receive from vendors we are working with, within our contracts. Thank you to Expressions Home Gallery’s showroom manager Kristina Bedoe and Nichole Cooper for hosting this educational and fun meeting. In addition to providing lunch, there were several fixture and appliance vendors for our ASID members to learn about new products and how to specify them. We also appreciate Kim Schumann for sharing his experience, and expert advice to our ASID members and IP’s during this event.

The One Room 12 Ways concept has seen a number of talented designers showcase their vision behind the Red Doors at the Stonemill Design Center since it first began February 2016. We have benefited from seeing how many transformations this 900 sq. ft. space can take on. The possibilities are endless, as every designer has their own concept on how this space can look, feel and function. For the month of November, two ASID designers, Linda Tom and Miko Krisvoy partnered to present their concept for the space. Their direction was to create an elegant room that encompasses Venetian elements in a modern way. Tom and Krisvoy decided on a warm color palette with golden hues to achieve this look, and used furnishings and accessories to blend the past and present by displaying subtle lines and rhythmic shapes. In addition, the playful faux finished walls and rich, autumnal palette created a sense of refined comfort. This warm and inviting room provided the perfect setting for many activities, from reading a favorite book to entertaining company. The concept was derived from their inspiration piece, a 4’ x 8’ Ventian Canal on giclee, that also brought a touch of glamor to the space displayed on the back wall. From the light wall and floor coloring, to the soft touches on the furniture, their mission was to connect with this artwork.
Pieces for the space from vendors such as HD Buttercup and DRC were chosen that had a repetitive texture, shape or color to invite one’s eye to flow from furniture to accessories. Tom and Krisvoy wanted the sense of autumn approaching to engage all of the senses, so they installed fragrant seasonal candles throughout the space to speak to our sense of smell. The team was able to successfully pull of their vision, with only one compromise. “Originally, I envisioned a piano for this space, but we were unable to borrow a piano from two piano stores nearby,” said Tom. “Our next plan was to borrow a large string instrument or harp and hire a harpist. But there was no resource for an instrument or a musician.” Instead of a large instrument, the team settled on a Wing Chair to balance out the space. They had determined to use up all of the space available, and wanted to ensure the eye traveled in a full circle so as to not miss any of the details. Be sure to follow us on our Facebook page at ASID OC to cast your vote as each month a new space is revealed. At the end of this 12-month event, one designer or team will receive a full-page ad in Modern Luxury/Interiors California Magazine.

Hoover Comission Supports Interior Design Legislation By: Beverly Stadler Legistlative Chair Yes, Hoover is a vacuum, but the Little Hoover Commission in California may influence our future as a profession. To refresh your memory, it is the bi-partisan oversight agency created in 1962 to investigate state operations, and make recommendations regarding government reorganization plans and select study topics, including occupational licensing in California. This year, as they explored the issue of occupational licensing in California, people that testified at the first hearing used interior design as an example of an occupation that did NOT require licensure, as there has been confusion between the scope of services of interior designers with that of interior decorators. The Interior Design Coalition of California (IDCC) was able to participate in the second hearing in June, and testified to the need for designers to be licensed in the state of California by educating the committee regarding the true work and education of interior designers;
particularly those that work in the code impacted environment. Our representative also made the case for promoting small business, and women owned business through licensing. The Little Hoover Commission report will assist our licensing effort in California in the future, and in the short term, will support our efforts in elevating our profession as well as the renewal of our voluntary CID registration through the Sunset Review Process. This is positive news, however to continue our efforts to educate our legislators we need to engage our lobbyists and our members, with both your financial support, and our voice! To donate to our legislative cause, bring your donation to any ASID meeting and provide it to your legislative representative with a check to IDCC, or visit www.idc-ca.org. Information on our letter writing campaign will be presented at our next meeting. THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THE FUTURE OF OUR PROFESSION!
