Happy New Fiscal Year!
IDRC
The time has come to conclude another year and start our new fiscal year, 2013/2014.

As IDRC we are three years old with over 40 years experience in the Interior Decorating Industry from our previous lives (CWDA, WWFA). We would like to thank companies who have been loyal to us during these years as we progress into each new decade. This support has been augmented by new members under the IDRC umbrella.

As IDRC, we continue to help develop the Interior Decorating Industry as a whole. Our membership, which started with a handful of suppliers, now reaches out to the full spectrum of industry participants. We are particularly proud of our accomplishments which embodies the grassroots of interior decor & design through our scholarships & awards program with several colleges in Canada.

It is our aim to continue providing recognition to the new generation of rising stars of interior decorators & designers. We reach out to all progressive businesses to involve them in our future activities and to shine with sponsor/donation opportunities.

Neutral dining room can be dressed for holidays
NorthJersey.com
The Challenge: My clients love to entertain, frequently with formal, sit-down dinners. Their dining room's original décor utilized the green and raspberry tones prevalent in the adjoining rooms.
