Course Description

Have you always wanted to learn the basic decorating principles and techniques without having to attend an interior design school?  Interior Decorating Made Easy will give you a quick and easy overview of the design process.  You'll learn the principles of design -- color, texture, scale and balance and how to apply them to any room or a whole house.    Best of all you can take the class online when and where it's most convenient for your schedule.

This class was developed for those of us who can feel overwhelmed with trying to create the perfect room for our lifestyle.  There is no wrong or right way of doing things when it comes to personal style just as long as it's pleasing to you so forget your fears of 'design police' evaluating you.  The lesson content provides a framework in which to start redecorating or decorating and the general knowledge about the basics of interior design that you can easily learn and put into practice.
Even if you're not a born decorator, this course will help you gain confidence in the development of your personal style.
