About This Class

Have you ever wondered what makes a room look so much more polished and pulled together than other rooms?

Have you struggled to find the right paint color that coordinates with the different wood finishes in your home?

Have you ever wondered how interior designers make coffee tables, console tables, fireplace mantels, and bookcases look so beautifully decorated?  

If you've ever asked yourself any of these questions, then this is the class for you!  "Design is in the Details" is a class devoted to the main details that make up beautiful room design, including accessorizing, mixing wood and metal finishes, and moldings.  

Please note that this course only covers the topics of accessorizing, mixing wood and metal finishes, and different types of room molding.  It does not provide information on how to pull together a room (e.g., furniture layouts, rug sizes, etc.).  That information can be found in my course "How to Design a Room in 10 Easy Steps"

In this class we will cover the following main topics:

  • 5 key accessories that every room should have
  • The importance of accessories
  • My 7 golden rules for accessorizing
  • Learn how to beautifully decorate console tables, coffee tables, fireplace mantels and bookcases
  • Learn how to mix different metal finishes with ease, including the kitchen and the bathroom
  • Learn how to mix different wood finishes like a pro, including which paint colors look best with different wood finishes
  • Learn how to use moldings to transform your home, including crown molding, baseboard, window and door casing, chair rail, panel molding, and picture frame molding

Throughout the class, you will also be provided with practical exercises to help you immediately apply what you've learned in each section.  

This is a great beginner's course for those who are interested in learning more about the details that designers use to elevate the overall design of a space.  This could also be a great class for interior design students or professionals who are new to the field.  

Join me for a fun, action-packed class on interior design details!

Important Note:  Please be aware that this course, or any of my courses, is not intended to provide all of the knowledge needed to become a professional interior designer.  As with any professional field, there is a significant amount of education and/or experience that is needed to achieve competency in this field.  My intention with these courses is to provide some solid foundational knowledge to assist either those individuals interested in "DIY" interior design to work on their own projects more effectively, or to provide supplemental education to both interior design students and professionals.
