Description

With so many different interior design styles available today, do you find yourself getting overwhelmed and unsure of how to choose a style or pull off a style well in your own home? It becomes even more complicated when you want to mix different interior design styles but are unsure of how to do that so it looks fabulous and well pulled together, instead of flat out chaotic.  

To that end, this course has been created to help you understand the defining characteristics of 18 different popular interior design styles today so that you can either create one of those styles in your own home or learn how to easily and effectively mix different styles on your own.

This course will go fairly deeply into 18 different and distinct interior design styles in areas that include:

  • Defining furniture characteristics
  • Common materials used in each style
  • Appropriate color schemes and patterns for each style
  • Window and floor covering options for each style
  • Lighting, artwork and accessories appropriate to each style
  • Retailers that carry furnishings for each particular style

We will also spend an entire section focused solely on how to mix styles well using a simple, formulaic approach.  You will learn how to do this both through a lecture approach as well as listening to 2 real life case studies.

Finally, after each style section, you will have an opportunity to take a style quiz to help you find out which interior design styles are best suited to you based on your preferences.

This course is a great choice for anyone wanting to learn more about different interior design styles and how to mix them successfully on their own, and for interior designers who want to brush up their skills on different interior design styles.

Interior Designer

While Interior design is my main career and passion, I also absolutely love to teach others, so I am thrilled to have found Udemy so that I can share that passion and knowledge with others just like you. 

Are you a design enthusiast yourself? 

Do you wish you could design rooms in your own home that are both beautiful and functional? 

Do you wonder how interior designers make it look so effortless? 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are my ideal student! 

Through my classes, I show you how many areas of interior design can be broken down into simple-to-use processes and formulas.  In every class, I share some of my favorite processes and formulas so that you can be successful in creating beautiful rooms all on your own using an easy, systematic approach.

I’ve been designing and redesigning rooms for as long as I can remember – first for myself, then for friends and family, and finally decided to make it my full-time career.  Today, I own my own thriving interior design business in San Diego, California.  I primarily work in residential design, but have recently expanded to commercial work as well.  I also graduated from the Interior Design program at the New York Institute of Art and Design.

I hope you’ll join me in one or all of my classes, so you too can learn how to create your dream home!
