About This Class


Love where you work! Design a custom, stylish and functional modern home office like a pro. Do you work, study or blog part or full-time from home? What does your space look like? Is it functional? Stylish? Amazing? Do you love it? If you answered yes to the first question and even hesitated at any of the following questions, this class is for you!

It’s a known fact that the quality and comfort of your workspace has a direct effect on your productivity and overall well-being. Depending on the type of work you do, if you work full-time, you easily spend 25-30% of your time in your workspace (or in my case closer to 35-40%).  So, why spend a quarter of your life in an uncomfortable, ugly space? Do I need to go on and on about how important this is! You deserve the best!

In this online class from Skillshare, learn the professional approach to basic interior design methods, guidelines, tips, tricks and sources and design a modern, custom workspace that you will LOVE to be in! (even if you do have to be working).

Note: It doesn’t matter if your space is part of a shared space or its own separate room, the same design principles will apply.


Topics and Skills covered in this class include:

  • Interior design concept development : Learn how professional Interior Designers devise, develop and present a design concept and apply these skills to your project.
