Design Orange County
Letter from the President
Adriel Cogdal, ASID, CID
Dear Members,
It took a long time for me to form a vision for our chapter, and
now that it has come to me part of holding that vision is setting goals to
make it real. I have chosen three primary goals for the year:
1. To elevate the practice ofInterior Design by increasing our professional membership.
We can’t expect architects, contractors much less the public to support professional designers
if we are not even professional members of our own design organization. Currently 34% of our
designers are professional members. Not a very good number. We strengthen our position in the community
and in government when we have large numbers of professional members. There’s power in numbers. Do
you know what this means? If you haven’t already, it’s time to step up to the plate and take the NCIDQ exam. STEP
classes are now regularly being held and we will start study groups for you…..whatever it takes. Now is the time.
2 . To enhance the value of membership forthe many segments of our membership with special emphasis on Industry Partners.
The biggest disconnect we seem to have is between Industry Partners and designers. I think it should be our strongest. If I had the
opportunity to get to know them personally…like we designers know each other it would become natural for me to go to them first for
anything I needed. Networking works and it’s the key. To facilitate this we’re going to introduce programs and meetings for our IPs,
particular to their needs and to create networking opportunities between IPs and designers.
3. To promote the brand ASID in Orange County. We have to educate the public what designers do what ASID is and why it is important to them
that they hire an ASID designer. It does not serve anyone’s purpose to be the best kept secret in OC. We need coverage of all our events and of our
designers and their accomplishments so that the community will begin to recognize ASID as a symbol of professionalism, ethics, education and
community service.
So we have a vision, we have goals, now we need the people to bring it to life. That’s where you come in. We need all of you to give just a few hours of your
time for the year to make things happen. The more volunteers, the less work any one person has to do. Think about that and you and your friends email or call
to volunteer.
The theme for this year is inclusiveness and the board and I have drawn up a blue print of activities to bring in all the different segments of our membership
and to accomplish the goals listed above. We share in the belief of our collective energy and talents and our purpose as designers.
Come join us….it’s going to be a bang up year!

Dear Members,
We’ve already started an exciting year under the leadership of our new
President Adriel Cogdal, ASID, CID. She has plunged into her new term with
enthusiasm and vengeance; already scheduling newprograms aswell has planning new
events. A fewhints have been dropped as to her plans and they all sound exciting. Watch and
listen very closely for the announcements of each event. Some will be absolute fun and some very
educational.
The trade showwas a huge success underthe leadership of Marianne Kreter, ASID, CID and her Committee. Jamie
Namanny, Allied Member ASID was close to her side as she will chair this event next year. The venue at the Newport
Dunes was perfect for the event. We had plenty of parking with each vendor having adequate space. Many of the vendors
joined us from past trade shows aswell as many newones. Our attendance from Designers grewfrom last year aswas expected.
Upon entrance they were each given a resource notebook which included information from each vendor who participated. It’s a
great resource tool to add to your library. Each year our trade show grows bigger and bigger. We even had members from the other
Chapters come and take a look to see how we set up a show that is so successful! Thank you, Marianne.
Chris Kittrell, Allied Member ASID is presently looking for our 2008 House of Design. She has pretty much narrowed in on one that sounds
like the perfect house and will provide many spaces for our seasoned and new designers to participate. If you would like to know more about how
you can participate please call Chris at (949) 760-0196
I’m looking forward to this year of mentoring from our outstanding and motivating leaders, Adriel Cogdal, ASID, CID, David Rance, ASID, CID and
Marianne Kreter, ASID, CID to take our membership forward as your President in the year of 2008-2009.

17th Annual Trade Show at Newport Dunes
By Marianne Kreter, ASID, CID, ’07 Trade Show Chair
On a beautiful balmy fall evening on the Newport Back Bay in midOctober,
ASID OC hosted a wonderful Trade Show for almost 100 vendors and 300
designers! In addition to the inspiring new products and services being
shown, the location and the weather turned the event into an exciting and
fun party!
Friends had a chance to catch up with each other, and at the same time
discoverwonderfulresources. Therewas lots offree parking and each designer
left with a complimentary binder containing information about each of the
vendors that will be a useful reference tool for years to come.

Many designers also went home with a Door Prize in addition to all the
valuable information they gathered. Enjoy the pictures from the event, you
should recognize many of your friends!
Jamie Namanny will be chairing the 2008 Trade Show and she is
already planning on enhancements to the event with additional lighting,
special bathroom facilities and an off-site location forthe CEU. If youwould
like to assist Jamie in this project, please let her know of your interest.
We thought members would want to know that income from the Trade
Show helps support many ASID activities offered during the year as well as
funding our ASID office at the Laguna Design Center.
We are indebted to our participating vendors fortheir support ofthis event
and urge all our designers to use their services.

Design Orange County
ASID Orange County Chapter - Community Service 2007
By Sandra DeLaura, Allied Member ASID
Community Service Chairperson 2007
Beginning inFebruary 2007ourCommunityServiceProjectCommittee
beganwith ten Interior Designers volunteering theirtime and efforts
toward a remodel project at Human Options, a shelter in Irvine that
aidswomen and their childrenwho are seeking refuge from the abuse
of domestic violence.
Human Options was
in dire need of a bathroom
remodel in one of
theirunits andrequested
additionalbeds toaccommodate
theirtransitional
living environment, in
two of their bedrooms.
They asked our Chapter
to assist,while keeping
in mind their budget
concerns.
Sandra DeLaura, Community Service
Chairpersonandcommitteemembersproceeded
by contacting overtwenty six localresources,
from flooring to lighting and invited them to
participate by donating either product orlabor
Pro-bono for the shelter and Sea Pointe
Construction agreed to offertheirlabor services
to remodel the bathroom.
The Designers met several times a month
right up to installation day on September 7,
2007,taking care of allthe details involved on
this design project. They created spaces that
would help calm the stress that the women
and children have just left behind and hopefully,
inspire a brighter future.
A week later on September 12th they celebrated
with a beautiful Open House at the
shelter.Thehighlightofthe eveningwas acknowledging
the generous Donors and Designers
with Certificates of Appreciation fromour ASID
Chapter.
To everyone’s delight and surprise the Probono
donations ofmaterials and/orlaborfrom
the participating resources exceeded ‘twenty
two thousand dollars’ worth of warm hearted
gifting.
The response from Roe Piccoli, the Human
Options Shelter Director was that the women
clients have said “if they knew the rooms
and shelter were this nice, they would have
lefttheir abuser sooner” and one little girl said
“itlooked like amansion”. We all love a happy
ending.

Every yearthe judges look forfresh and innovative projects and concepts.
A project has to make a first good impression. This sometimes might
require the designer to take some risks resulting in a great outcome and a
great projectwill always rise to the top. Remember even the smallest project
is important. I believe there are no losers, every participant is a winner and
for that you should all be proud.
A great thanks to all of you who participated.

Installation Luncheon 2007
By David Rance, ASID, CID
Past President ASID-OC
What awonderful luncheonwe had atthe Five Crowns restaurantin Corona
Del Mar in September for the installation of our new board. It was a time to
rememberthe past year and give recognition to our memberswho have given
ofthemselves to support our chapter. Therewere times of laughter, and sentiment.
There was an occasional ‘tear in the eye’ moment, but of course! As
outgoing President, I kept thinking… I want to keep talking and maybe my
term will last a little longer. Adriel Cogdal, ASID, CID. Incoming
President, gave her incoming speech and I knew I could move on. She was
the leader of the chapter now and I was going into retirement.
At the writing of this article I am wondering when the retirement is going
to happen. Adriel has an aggressive agenda for the coming year and none
of us has time to rest.
Therewere over 100 guests to ourluncheon. We had past presidents, and
medalists who were able to attend. These people have so much knowledge
and experience to impart to our chapter. I was glad to see them, and we do
not want to let them go, we need there guidance as we keep marching on to
bigger, better and new projects and events.
Iwantto thankmy right hand for certificates and organization, JanetQuinley
our Office Administrator. I do not know how the speech and recognition
would have gone without her. She helped organize me and we pulled off a
professional(mostly) presentation. Also, Julia Caro,what a person of energy.
She pulled that luncheon together and made it look easy. And, it is not easy
to get these events together. There is a lot that has to happen to get the
invitations out, to get the venue, etc etc. A thank you to Julia for a great
luncheon.
This luncheon was a time I was able to recognize those who have done
so much. It is amazing how many people are involved. And those who are
involved mean so much to me, and to the chapter. A Bronze certificate is an
expression of our appreciation, but there is much more than a certificate can
recognize. Thank you to all of you who supported my year as President. I
know you will be the ones who continue the support for Adriel.

Philharmonic House of Design 2008
By Chris Kittrell, Allied Member ASID, CID
& ASID Philharmonic House of Design Chair, 2008
Great news! As Chair of this year’s Philharmonic House of Design, I am
pleased to announce that agreements have been reached to secure a grand
scale “spec” home in Crystal Cove, Newport Beach, high on a hill overlooking
Newport Harbor. The house is 8400 square feet and has a commanding and
panoramic ocean view. There are at least 25 indoor spaces, not counting the
wonderful loggias and patios. The home is currently in the framing stages
and the construction schedule has beenmoved up to accommodate ourHouse
of Design schedule. The builder is Bob Pack with Stonefield Development
and he has been working with Oma Talley, Allied Member ASID, as well as
Barbara Stowers, on the early design concepts and overall vision for the
home’s design. The house was designed by the award-winning firm of R.
Douglas Mansfield, Inc and takes every advantage of the breathtaking site.
While the house is Santa Barbara style, the design concept calls for a lighter
color palette and more transitional style décor. Parking and HOA approval
are being secured thisweekwith more specifics to followon the entire timeline
for this project.
I am equally pleased to announce that my ASID Co-Chair has been selected
and is Laura Yorba, Allied Member ASID,who participated successfully in the
House of Design 2007 and will be a wonderful addition to our Steering
Committee this year and ASID Chair of the Philharmonic House of Design
2009. I amalso honored to beworkingwithmy Philharmonic Society Benefit

By Farida Gabdrakhmanova, Student Member ASID,
Vice-president of the ASID Saddleback College Student Chapter
To welcome the Fall season, the Saddleback College ASID Student
Chapter recently launched a fun and exciting TABLETOP DESIGN COMPETITION.
The event consisted of a presentation by Lynne Anne Chichi, lunch, and
thecompetition.WiththeoverallthemesofHalloween,Autumn,andThanksgiving,
participating students broughttheir creativity to the tablewith their own interpretations.
Creativeness, originality, and uniqueness combined with team
effort were the main criteria for selecting the winner. Adreil Cogdal, ASID
Orange County Chapter President, Lynne Anne Chichi,tabletop design expert,
and Diane McGroarty, instructorfrom the Fashion Department of Saddleback
College, composed the panel of judges.
Held lastOctober 24th,the day ofthe competitionwas one ofthose nervous
smoky days during the SouthernCalifornia fires; however,the students’ passion
for design overcame all obstacles and the day turned into a fantastic event.
Lynn Anne Chichi, tabletop design wizard and comedienne, was a guest
speaker and one of the judges. Thirty years of residential design experience
and over ten years as a stand up comedienne are the foundation of Lynn’s
“TABLETALK”. Lynn has created presentations where she has integrated her
abilities as a humoristwith herrecognized tabletop expertise. The LosAngeles
Mart, the Orange County Philharmonic House of Design, and her numerous

Thenthe competitionbegan. Fourteamswere ready to embody theirprepared
design concepts in tabletop creations. They only had twentyminutes to set up
theirtables. The competitionwas short, butrevealed four beautiful and unique
designs. Check out the themes: Pilgrim Chic, Organic Elegance, Enchanted
Table, and Fall Bounty. The audience was truly amazed to see the fabulous
presentations and the judges had a difficult time selecting the winner.
The “Pilgrim Chic”, reminiscent of the early colonists at Plymouth,
became the best table of the competition, remarkably reflecting the original
concept presenting the celebration ofthe toil,farewell and feast ofthe harvest.
Congratulations to Jennifer Lawton-Pal, KimRussell van Toor, LorrieHolt, and
Roseann DiCostanzo for their marvelous creation!
The second place went to Jesse Cubacub, Gilda Bahadori, and Audelina
Martinez fortheir“Organic Elegance”, capturing the natural beauty offall colors
and fruits of the earth harvested from the land.
The best table: “Pilgrim Chic”
The second place winner: “Organic Elegance”.

incredible membership drive and with David Rance, Past ASID President,
speaking at the fall membership drive meeting.
The IDI Chapter already had the opportunity to work with Orange
County Chapter by volunteering forthe Industry Partners Trade Show. Itwas
an amazing opportunity to work with ASID Professional Designers and to
meet so many new vendors. The Trade Show was a great experience!
The Student Chapter looks forward to the 2008 Philharmonic House of
Design and the opportunity for our student members to come together and
work as a teamfromdesign conception to presentation and installation, alongside
some of Orange County's outstanding interior designers. IDIis proud of
two of its graduates who are Philharmonic House of Design Chairperson,

Another Important
Reason to Take
the NCIDQ
By: David Losco, Allied Member ASID
TheOrange County Chapter of ASID places significant emphasis on
the importance of its members becoming NCIDQ Certificate Holders.
TheChapter provides assistance tomemberswho are planning to take
theNCIDQexamination by offering convenient, local STEP(Self-Testing
Exercises for Pre-Professionals) classes that prepare designers to take
the test.
In addition, the Chapter—under the direction of President Adriel
Cogdal—is in the process of expanding and enhancing its efforts to
support members in achieving their career goals. Information about
new programs, designed to provide additional resources and support
for members, will be published in the near future.
Eligibility criteria—for entrance to the NCIDQ Examination—
continually grow more rigorous. This evolutionary process creates a
need for us to act as quickly as possible to prepare ourselves for the
next logical and essential step in our career progression—NCIDQ
Certification.
Themostrecent change in eligibility criteria clearly emphasizes the
need for timely action. It requires that examination candidates, who
begin their years of work experience after January 1, 2008, complete
that experience under the direct supervision of an NCIDQ Certificate
holder, a registered interior designer, or an architect who offers interior
design services. No independent practice time will be accepted.
While it’sdifficulttopredictthe impactofthis changewithanydegree
of accuracy, we can make some assumptions. For example, it’s likely
therewill be greater numbers of design-school graduates and students
seeking entry-level positions and internships rather than establishing
an independent practice.
However,themosttalentedanddesirablecandidatesmaynot consider
accepting employment with designers who are not NCIDQ Certificate
holders. This is only one of the likely consequences of this most
recent change in eligibility requirements. In addition, there may be
unintended consequences that could furtherimpact designerswho are
not Certificate holders.
The Chapter supports its members in their efforts to obtain professional
certification. Please watch for announcements concerning
Chapter-sponsored, professional-development opportunities and STEP
Classes. Applications for the Spring 2008 NCIDQ must be submitted
by December 10, 2007. Application materials and instructions can be
obtained on-line at: www.ncidq.org
LEGISLATION
WhatisHappening in California
By David Rance, ASID, CID
IDCC, Interior Design Coalition of California, spoke to a group of Interior
Designers and Trades people at the Lutron Experience Center in November.
The eventwas sponsored by AudioVisions. We are very appreciative to them
for all of their support to our profession. Not just this event, but many of
the events they have supported.
The event was attended by a diverse group and the questions, answers,
and interaction was very valuable. This was not an ASID event, it was open
to All Interior Designers and Tradespeople. The event called the ‘Listening
Tour’ is considered away forIDCC to getinformation from the designers,their
concerns, questions, and input. This is the beginning of the coalition, so all
input is needed and welcome. There was valuable information provided
not only from IDCC but also from the representatives of CLCID and CCIDC.
Those who attended, I hope received some valuable information. It also
created questions onwhat exams to take, andwhatis Certification in California
versus what the IDCC is going for, a Practice Act. I am not going to go into
this in this article, but I urge everyone to go to WWW.IDC-CA.ORG and to
WWW.CCIDC.ORG to become familiar with the views of both organizations.
Any legislation regarding our profession affects us, whether we initiate it
or the architects or contractors do. And, let me tell you, the architects and
contractors are aggressively pushing legislation to limitthe practice ofInterior
Design, not only in California, but in the United States. It is valuable for you
to understand that our livelihoods are in jeopardy unless we act.
ASID National supports IDCC and the direction that it is taking. As ASID
Orange County, we support the NCIDQ, and the IDCC. For more information
on the NCIDQ Exam visit WWW.NCIDQ.ORG .
Those who are Certified in the State of California, please keep up your
Cerfification. Do not disregard what we have now. There are many people
who haveworked hard to gain this status for us. But, nowis the time to move
forward for a Practice Act to protect our profession.

Loss of Industry Legend
By Karen Gregg
On September 24th the Interior Design Industry lost
a very special person who was the Manager and the
heart of The Showplace South, LoriPaquette. She courageously
fought cancer for almost three years. To Lori it
wasn't just business at the showroom, it was about
making the clients feel welcome and creating life long
friendships. Lori made everyone feel more than just a client by her endearing
spirit. Admired and loved by so many, she will be greatly missed.
