Interior decorating touches the lives of all of us in a very direct way. We all live in interiors, and most of us work, study, shop, and travel inside buildings, vehicles, and other enclosures. At one time or another, almost everyone has been an interior designer or decorator on a limited scale when choosing a painting color or a rug, when buying furniture, or when arranging furniture in a new living place.

Our course incorporates non-Western design and dynamic color illustrations that flesh out technical concepts. Also included are current trends in sustainability and green design, building codes, universal design and building information models, amplifying the already invaluable interior design tricks of the trade.

Our Interior Decorating course will help you understand the basic principles of interior design and decorating to both improve your life and set you in a new direction for your career!
