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 InteriorDesign 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 successful 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! You'll be shown different ways to detangle the massive amount of information that comes to us through media and commerce. Getting acquainted with the interior design tools will offer you the opportunity to develop your style and create an inspired design.

Each lesson starts with a talk by way of selected slides, followed by discussion and question time. And although the interior design process is almost fully digitalised, each lesson will be concluded with a short, fun manual exercise. Notice that no particular skills are required for this course, but it will certainly be useful if you can to bring a usb stick or iPad with your interior photographs (camera or phone) and collected images from the internet later.
