Introduction to Interior Design Part 2 Online Short Course

Course description

With the essential design skills already mastered in Introduction to Interior Design - Part 1, Introduction to Interior Design - Part 2 will continue to consolidate and extend your interior design experience of a residential interior.

Through a series of lectures, workshops and demonstrations you will become more confident and adventurous as you incorporate your newfound techniques to construct a completely new design scheme for a domestic interior.

You’ll be guided through the use of colour, soft furnishings and lighting and by the end of the course, you will have completed a portfolio of work to communicate your design knowledge professionally with future clients.
