I have just completed a five week interior design course with Nikki. I now have a mood board created with all my ideas. Inspired by Nikki’s interactive and professional teaching and complete with a scaled drawing, with new found confidence I feel ready to transform my bedroom.
Nikki creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere in her beautiful, inspirational home to learn these invaluable skills, complete with delicious coffee and tea cakes.
Over five very enjoyable weeks, not only have I learnt a lot but I feel I have also made a new friend
Thank you Nikki, I loved every minute.

Had a fantastic time on Nikki’s interior design course.
Did not have a clue how to put colours and different designs together.
Now I have my mood board and have been totally inspired.
Will definitely be back to learn more.
Thank you so much Nikki!!
The tea and cake were nice too x

“My sister and I really enjoyed the day, being novices in this field. It opened our eyes to the detail involved in the world of interior design. The underpinning knowledge to consider when starting a project will be invaluable going forwards; and the practical tasks during the course made the day fun and interactive. Nikki was warm and welcoming and we both really enjoyed spending time with her, her obvious wealth of knowledge and experience of interior design made us feel like we were in highly qualified hands. We left feeling very excited about starting our projects.”
