Course information

I offer two Interior Design courses COLOUR MY SPACE and DESIGN MY SPACE.

Courses are held at my home in Tunbridge Wells

Colour my space 

2 day course on colour and the basic principles of Interior Design.

This course will start on a Friday so you have the weekend to think about what you learned about colour and design and start putting together a mood board, although you can do it on the Monday if you don’t have time. 

Colour Theory

  • Introduction to colour
