An Introduction to Interior Design

 

Course overview

Interior design encompasses function, fashion, colour, light, materials and decoration. You are introduced to the key principles and language of interior design – from interpreting the brief to realising and communicating creative ideas. No previous knowledge is assumed and you are encouraged to explore a range of ideas, processes and methods while you complete a negotiated personal project.
