Since moving into our first home, I have become swept up in the colourful and creative world of interior styling, decorating and designing. Suddenly to have the opportunity to be able to paint the walls in the colour of your choice, alter the flooring, even change the layout and functionality of the room has left me with a growing passion for interior design. It has been exhilarating to find how rewarding designing your own interior can be.

I’ve immersed myself in interior design books such as Farrow & Ball’s How to Decorate, become a regular fan of BBC’s The Great Interior Design Challenge (and even applied to be a contestant myself!) as well as completed the KLC online short course ‘My Design School: Design Your Own Home‘, a fab five week online course designed to help find your style and gain design inspiration with the regular tuition from experienced mentors.

So when KLC Design School gave me the opportunity to become one of their attendees on their short course ‘Interior Design: The Essentials‘ this coming April, I obviously jumped at the chance to further immerse myself in the world of interior design!

I’m like a kid in a sweet shop when I visit, mesmerised with the enticing ‘couture for the home’ on offer. For KLC, a design school providing stimulating career based interior design training, then their base couldn’t be better placed.

Whether you simply want to dip your toe in the water and spend a day or two being inspired by design or you want to go the full hurdle and fancy a change in career into interior design, then KLC will have a course for you. From short courses right the way through to gaining a BA (Hons) in Interior Design, there’s something for all you design enthusiasts. There’s even a dedicated page on their website to help you choose which course if you’re feeling a little unsure.

I can’t wait to get stuck into Interior Design: The Essentials and gaining a further insight into interior design. I’m drooling over the course syllabus already….phrases such as textiles, accessories, planning spaces, colour and textures, sample boards and concepts as you can tell gets me very excited, I’m itching to start already! I’m really keen to learn more about developing schemes, planning and sourcing for a space as well as learning more about lighting and technology and executing your ideas. I think this course is going to help me well!
