A fresh start for 2022 - interior design taster course live online

Working from my home studio, provides a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.


Freshen up your home and clear the clutter for 2021! In two hours, you’ll learn the key elements of design and pick up the skills, solutions and inspiration you need to transform your home. I will contact you a few days before your course for any special design requests - that way, we can include some elements that are personal to you. Group sizes will be kept small for that reason too.

With flexible morning, afternoon, evening and weekend slots available, you’re sure to find a time to suit your plans. Or why not invite family or friends – this course makes the perfect birthday or Mother's Day gift for someone special. Learning together but from the comfort of your own home, my classes are relaxed and friendly - no experience is required. If you would like me to design a bespoke course to suit your group's requirements, this can also be arranged.

I look forward to welcoming you to my 'virtual' studio for a great learning experience and lots of fresh ideas for 2022.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

· Ideas on re-organising & decluttering your home
· Learn how to integrate a flexible, space-saving area for home working or crafting, without compromising on style
· Tips and tricks to create unique and stylish artworks & money-saving home design secrets
· How to up-cycle your own furniture and furnishings

A really interesting and useful course. Making interior design achievable and affordable. Lots of great tips to enhance your home. Am now inspired to declutter, look at what I have in a different way and ready to buy some paint, be confident and upcycle! 😊
Thank you Dawn

Response from DM Interior Design:

Thank you Karen. It was lovely to meet you and I'm so pleased you found the course useful. I'm sure the tips you've learned and your new-found confidence will help you to make the most of your extension (and any other room in your home!)

I am coming to the end of decorating my house and Dawn helped me to believe in the choices I had made so far! I found her tips on colour matching helpul, also her ideas on grouping pictures and cheap adaptations for storage. Thank you

Response from DM Interior Design:

Thank you very much for the lovely review, Julie. If there was anything you felt could have been improved upon, I would love to hear your thoughts as it all helps with future courses. I hope you can find some more ideas for storage and your design ideas continue to flourish!

This is a great value session full of helpful tips and tricks for anyone who wants to learn how to approach interior design in their own home. Dawn personalised the session to our preferred design styles and topics that we wanted to learn more about, which was really appreciated. I particularly liked that the session was geared for 'real people' with budgets and limited free time, so all hints and ideas were realistic and affordable. Thanks again, Dawn!

Response from DM Interior Design:

Thank you Liz, for the lovely review. It was great to meet you and Charlotte yesterday and I'm so pleased you felt the course was helpful. Your enthusiasm and interest in the subject, made it all the more enjoyable to teach you! I would love to hear how you both get on with your own design projects (and if you manage to make space for those future purchases!) I'm sure you'll enjoy the process and thanks once again.

I really enjoyed this course. I learned a lot more than I thought I would. I have already recommended it to a friend

Response from DM Interior Design:

Hi Julie
Thanks so much for the lovely review and the recommendation to your friend. It was a pleasure having your company on my course. As I mentioned, I really enjoyed discussing your studio project with you and the other participants, especially as it was relevant to the course topic. I would love to see the results when you've finished!
Very best wishes
