InteriorDesign Now

InteriorDesign NOW!

Are you planning to (re-)decorate your house, update a single room or just interested in the workings of interior design? The short course Interior Design Now will give you plenty of insight, help organise your ideas and bring together the necessary elements to carry out a project with great results.

Interior design is not rocket science. It is more a method or a process that you can follow. Planning is what it is all about. A succesful interior sprouts from a well thought out plan, rather than from a collection of pieces of furniture and random choices. Through a practical approach, you will learn to plan and evaluate the basic aspects of interior design. A lot of emphasis will be on current time interiors! How to detangle the massive amount of information that comes to us through media and commerce? Get acquainted with interior design tools so you can develop your style and create a personal and inspiring interior.

Each lesson starts with a talk by way of selected slides and will have a short, fun manual exercise. And there will be room for discussion and questions. You are welcome to bring in your own photographs and collected images. Notice that no particular skills are required for this course.
