re-Think your Home
Interior Design Course
This interior design course is a little different...
Find yourself gazing dreamily at pages of design magazines, wondering how they do it, and why your home doesn't look like that?
Do you start trips to furniture stores enthusiastically and end up feeling confused and overwhelmed, or even worse come home with something that doesn't quite work the way you hoped it would?
Ever pick a paint colour that you think is just perfect, and find it looks totally different and not as well as you thought it would when you put it on the wall?
I can't promise you everything, but I can promise solutions to these problems.
This is what we'll do
You'll learn to re-think, re-design, re-create....so the home you end up with is the home you love.
It’s about creating spaces that work functionally, and also make your heart sing. It starts with the philosophy above “have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful”. A very smart man, William Morris, gave this advice way back in the 1860’s, many years ahead of his time.
We’ll look at what’s 'useful' to you by examining how you live, and what you need your house to do. We’ll balance that by also making the space something ‘you believe to be beautiful’ using exercises to uncover your unique personal style, to create a home that works, uplifts and inspires.
Also it’s realistic. It’s about real life needs,…. real life houses and apartments, real people, and most importantly real life budgets. We’ll challenge the myths often seen in glossy design magazines, and learn how to create beautiful homes that work and support our lifestyles without breaking the bank.
Unlike most interior design courses, this isn't about getting a qualification in interior design, so there's no official 'homework' and no grading. The focus is sharing and learning all the tricks, tips, tools, and secrets of the interior design industry, and putting them into practice in your own home.
You don't need any particular skills or knowledge to do the course, just an interest in getting the most out of your home.
