Interior Design & Decor Course - distance learning with one to one consultations



This comprehensive online interior design courseincludes 12 self study modules, and weekly 1:1 telephone and or video consultations . I will personally guide and inspire you through your creative learning journey.

I'll be sharing all my experience with you, using techniques I've practised in my residential interior commissions, teaching workshops and courses at FLOCK in Devon.

This five-week distance learning version of my onsite course will take you through a full redesign of a room of your choice from start to completion, all without the need of expensive computer software or any experience of interior design.

How to work through the course

Each week you'll receive an email containing a workbook of course material for the modules you'll be studying. Each workbook also includes practical creative tasks and assignments for you complete as you master your own interior design project. Although this course is designed for you to work through remotely, I will be in touch with you during your design journey and at the end of each week, we will follow up with a phone consultation where we can discuss your progress and I can answer any queries you may have on the week's assignments.

You will also be able to share your design work with me online and I will follow your progress through the course.

On our weekly (up to one hour) consultation calls, I will provide you with personalised and professional feedback, which is what makes this course unique and stand out from the crowd.

So, if you have trouble deciding on a colour palette or what style fixture might match your concept, don’t worry I’ll be on hand to support you and you can relax in the knowledge that you'll never feel stuck or overwhelmed with a design decision again.


If you find you’re unable to commit to the timeframe or your project is put back, you can always work through the course at your own pace; and you’ll be armed and ready with the necessary design know-how to kick-start your interior project when it happens!

And remember, you can go back over the learning modules as many times as you need once you’ve finished the course.

Once you’ve booked your place you can start the course anytime (we can arrange mutually convenient times to have our consultations) and all course material comes with lifetime access

What's included in the price?

My Little Black Book of interior suppliers:

This is huge value- From artwork to furniture to samples, it’s great to have a list of good suppliers to call on for your project. I’m excited to share the details of some of the companies and small businesses I’ve used during my years as an interior designer. Some will be household names you’ll recognise, others are small independents with online shops.
