President of Interior Design Protection Consulting and founder of the previous Interior Design Protection Council, Patti Morrow has quite possibly changed the future of the profession of interior design. Among other things, Patti educates, organizes, and mobilizes grassroots organizations, as well as lobbies state legislative and executive branches. She has been instrumental in the defeat of over 130 attempts to expand or enact new legislation since 2006 – saving the jobs of thousands in the design community across the country.
Clark Neily, Senior Attorney at the Institute for Justice, touts Patti’s book Getting Grassroots Galvanized, as “the single most effective weapon in fighting back against the pro-regulation cartel.” Because of her outstanding success in grassroots mobilization, Patti was invited to deliver the keynote address at the “Pulling the Curtains on the Interior Design Cartel” National Conference hosted by the Institute for Justice in the D.C. area, in September, 2007.
Considered the country’s foremost authority on interior designer grassroots, Patti’s writings, views, and accomplishments regarding interior design regulation have appeared in hundreds of publications, radio, and other media, including the Wall Street Journal, Design Trade magazine, Window Fashion Vision magazine,MORE magazine, Lansing State Journal, Grand Rapids Press, Liberty and Law, Kitchen & Bath Business, Monday Morning Quarter Back, The Agitator, archBoston.org, the Hooksett Banner, Capitol Weekly, Interiors & Sources, ASID Design Daily, Kalamazoo Gazette, Misinformation & Design Regulation, Cato Institute, Remodeling, FEDA News and Views, and others.
Interior designers, decorators, stagers, redesigners, foodservice equipment suppliers, office furniture dealers, architects, remodelers, educators, students, and various other industry-related individuals and businesses, as well as virtually all professional organizations across the country rely on her newsletters and alerts for up-to-the minute information and direction on anti-competitive legislation, thus earning her the nickname “mother of the movement.”
Principal of Juxtapose Interior Design, Patti is known throughout New England for her exquisite and unique designs. Her specialties include her signature “fusion design,” contemporary, global, eclectic, and traditional design, as well as remodeling/new construction.
Patti is also active in professional organizations. She is a Certified Residential Interior Designer (RIDE) with the Designer Society of America and currently sits on their Board; Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS); Vice President of Government Affairs of the New England Chapter of the National Kitchen and Bath Association; Professional Member and convention speaker for Association of Design Education, Real Estate Staging Association (RESA) 2011 Innovator of the Year; member of the US Green Building Council (USGBC-NH).
A graduate of the New Hampshire Institute of Art, Patti is also an adjunct faculty member of her Alma Mater where she has taught workshops in new construction and interior design styles. She previously attended Bryant University in RI, and is also an award-winning watercolor artist.
Patti’s extensive travels in North, South and Central America, Mexico, the Caribbean, Canada, Europe, Egypt, Israel, and Southeast Asia give her a marketing edge in offering her clients innovative and fresh ideas for design not typically seen in homes and offices.
