My excuse for being missing in action for a bit ( apart from Christmas ) is that I have been working really hard at my online Good Homes Interior Design Course that I wrote about a while ago. It’s one of many run by My Interior Design School.
I am on module 4 now and along with what I already knew about design and it’s many aspects – it has helped me no end. In fact I’m actually enjoying the technical side a lot and never thought that would be the case considering in the past I have focused more on textiles and styling. Now I can do the lot.
Although clients will generally choose a designer that they like the style of amongst other requirements – It’s important to me that they can rely on me to offer detailed drawings and know lots about my subject. I think it must be the Aquarian in me but I always like to know as much as possible.
So far I have covered colour in the home, electrical and lighting design, scaled floor plans and am now working on cost and time sheets for a bedroom design. All of these are very detailed and quite extensive so it is best to take time and fully absorb each part.
I’ve found the way My Interior Design School explains each task very easy to comprehend and it has kept me wanting to learn more and more. There’s nothing worse than overly complicated instructions that put you off. So it’s been great so far.
Working with colours and textiles and coming up with ideas that will potentially make someone feel really happy and content in their home is really exciting. I feel like I have been working towards this in one form or another for a very long time.
I always like to be honest on my blog and I can say hand on heart that this is a very good interactive course that fulfils it’s obligation to bring out the interior designer in you. It covers so much and I feel it’s suitable for people who are creative but also want to gently get to grips with the more practical side.
In fact I think I will be sad when it finishes. But very ready to crack on with it all too.
