BIDS is a publishing division of Lifestyle Design Interiors. In 1995 our magazine's original concept was inspired by the lack of exposure given to the few professional black interior designers in the United States. Founded by Alicia Valair, CID, CKD, Allied Member ASID and supported by an impressive list of designers and architects who form the BIDS Advisory Council. The BIDS website was launched September 2007.
