काय सांगताय काय! 
Car decor ही आपल्याकडील अगदी सामान्यतः समजली जाणारी संकल्पना. जागोजागी तुम्ही वेगवेगळ्या नावांची Car decor ची दुकाने पाहिली असतील. पण Car decor असा उपयोगच मुळी चुकीचा आहे. ‘Decor’ चा अर्थ आहे The furnishing and decoration of a room किंवा The decoration and scenery of a stage. त्याचा गाड्यांशी काहीही संबंध नाही. तो आपण भारतीयांनी केलेला Decor या शब्दाचा दुरुपयोग आहे. 

गाडीचा आतील भाग सजवण्याचे काम करणाऱ्या कंपनीला Car Interior किंवा Car Interiors किंवा Car Interior styling असे म्हणतात.
