About this course

This course is perfect for anyone who has an interest in Interior Design or decoration and would like to try out some of the skills involved.  Giving you a taster of interior design, you will also find out what else can be learnt on our Interior Design - Beginners course.

The aim of the session is to give an insight into the basic skills used by Interior Designers, enabling you to effectively put together and present a colour scheme and samples to a client or friend. The skills learnt can be useful to anyone who has ever attempted to put a colour scheme together for a room or set of rooms.

On completion of the session, you should have chosen and selected a range of fabrics and finishes. You will recreate the colour scheme onto a room outline which you will add the colours on to using a range of media.

What will I learn?

The following will be covered during the session:

  • Looking at slides of previous students colour boards for inspiration and ideas on how to put colour and finishes together.
  • You will also be shown slides of Interior design boards which will give you an insight into what may be covered on the introduction to Interior design course, which you may wish to go on to do.
  • You will select from a wide range of samples and finishes that will be provided, in order to illustrate a specific colour scheme and ‘look’ for a chosen room. You will select and mix colours from a range of media based on the colours from the samples chosen.
  • By the end of the session, you will have a rendered drawing of an interior which shows a particular colour scheme that you have chosen. As a designer, you would present these ideas, together with drawings and a mood board, as part of a professional presentation.
