MODULE 1: STYLE
Personal style is integral to all decorators and key to their reputation. Learn how to identify and establish a personal style, recognise and work with others and their differing styles, and produce décor proposals that are sensitive to the space and design of a project.
MODULE 2: DESIGN PRINCIPLES & ELEMENTS
Once able to identify and work with the essential ingredients of interior decorating, a decorator should be able to transform any space. The correct use of design principles will make an interior space feel cohesive and well put together.
MODULE 3: TEXTILES & FABRICS
Explore the history of textiles, their role, use and application. Also learn to work with repeating patterns, railroaded fabrics and fabric suppliers.
MODULE 4: COLOUR
Colour is one of the most important elements in interior decorating. Discuss the science behind colour, colour combinations and schemes, psychology of colour, working with a colour wheel, choosing and using colour, and selecting colour schemes for interiors.
MODULE 5: SPACE PLANNING
Space planning has a very strong impact on interior decorating. Learn how to plan spaces in order to ensure comfort, balance and manoeuvrability.
