Description

Colour is a hugely important factor to consider within interior design practice. It affects our mood, health, and even our hormones. During this course you will learn in-depth colour theory, how colour can manipulate space and light, affect our mood; and dramatically transform a room. This course involves a blend of practical exercises and hands-on creative work. You will learn the technical terms and be taught the rules of colour. With this knowledge you will blend your own personal colour palette for use in an interiors project and be able to create personal colour schemes by making your own personalised paint swatches and interior design mood boards.

Course Outcomes
You will leave this course with the ability to recognise successful colour schemes, determine how light and space affect colour and mix your own paint palettes, and will have the confidence to discuss colour in a professional manner. You will also leave with a greater understanding of colour theory and how you can apply its rules to compliment your own work.

Who Should Attend
Anyone with an interest in interiors and those who wish to grow their knowledge of colour theory within design.
