Course Overview

This certificate is a dynamic, practical, industry-relevant program and is your entry into the field of interior design and decoration.

You will plan, design and decorate an interior with a focus on the development of the project's aesthetic, environmental, spatial and safety aspects as well as your client presentation skills.

Interior decorators create beautiful spaces without making structural or architectural changes.

You'll begin by focusing on 2D and 3D design and their decorative aspects, which will train you to effectively communicate concepts and design ideas to your residential clients. Projects are themed around exploring and evaluating areas in soft furnishings, colour, drawing and digital presentation skills based on historical and contemporary styles and trends.
