Summer is one of the busiest seasons for the interior design industry due to the warmer temperatures making opening up the windows to air out paint and other renovation odors more tolerable. It’s also a time that people often spend tackling their own DIY projects and decorating their homes. In honour of this fact, we thought we’d let you know about a tool that will help you take your home decorating project to the next level.
This tool will help you……
- How to determine your unique design style and make it work with the styles of others in your home
- How to create the "feeling" you want to experience when you're at home
- How to make a design that is cohesive throughout
- How to choose a home paint color scheme that flows
- How to determine your decorating budget and stick to it
- How to decorate open concept spaces
- How to create a functional floor plan and select furniture that is the appropriate size for your home
- How to style coffee tables, shelves, console tables, and more
- How to hang art and create gallery walls

- How to mix and coordinate patterns so that all the textiles (furniture fabric, pillows, drapes, rugs, wallpaper, etc) enhance the beauty of your home.
Home is the place that you should feel most comfortable, it should function well for your lifestyle and be a representation of who you are as a person and for that reason I developed the DIY Interior Design Course.
Let's take a deeper dive into the DIY Interior Design Course and what it has to offer…
Function & Feel
In this module I teach you the fundamentals of design and what is needed for GOOD interior design. I also show you how to use colour to create the feeling you want for your home so that it reflects your desired vibe.
Branding your Home
Interior design is a way of personalizing your home to your own design aesthetic and lifestyle. In this module I explain the importance of branding your home so that it is uniquely you.
This module provides you with the tools you need to start your project and keep it organized throughout the design process. Some resources include; budget calculators, measuring guides, furniture size and space guidelines and furniture templates and grid paper to assist you with furniture layouts.
Now that you have the foundation in place, this module teaches you how to tackle your project effectively so that you stay on budget. I also teach you how to create a moodboard so you can visualize how your space will look before you spend any money.
Styling is one of the most fun (and sometimes daunting) parts of interior decorating projects.
This module is jam packed with guides on how to style coffee tables, bookshelves and console tables, how to coordinate patterns, determine the amount of light required, area rug placement and tips for hanging art and gallery walls, etc.
