How to Work with Interior Design Styles Like a Pro! Part 1 of 2

via Skillshare


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 2-part 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 and/or learn how to easily and effectively mix different styles on your own.

Please note that this course only covers the characteristics of various interior design styles.  It does not provide information on how to pull together a room (e.g., furniture layouts, rug sizes, etc.).  That information can be found in my course "How to Design a Room in 10 Easy Steps"

This entire 2-part 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

Part 2 of this course will be focused entirely on how to mix styles well using a simple, formulaic approach and by learning which styles naturally work well together.

This multi-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.

Join me for a exciting journey into the world of interior design styles!

Important Note:  Please be aware that this course, or any of my courses, is not intended to provide all of the knowledge needed to become a professional interior designer.  As with any professional field, there is a significant amount of education and/or experience that is needed to achieve competency in this field.  My intention with these courses is to provide some solid foundational knowledge to assist either those individuals interested in "DIY" interior design to work on their own projects more effectively, or to provide supplemental education to both interior design students and professionals.
