About This Class

Whether you've owned your home for years, just moved your business to a new office, or have permission from your parents to redo your bedroom, Interior Design Essentials is the perfect starting point. Creating a beautiful space can seem overwhelming but can also be really simple and (more importantly) really fun! It all starts with the basics. This class will cover the fundamentals of interior design starting with (my favorite) color. We’ll discuss what basic colors are (from primary, secondary and tertiary colors), how different colors affect different spaces, some winning color combinations, how to build your color palette from your favorite item, and how to choose the perfect shade of paint for your space.

You need absolutely no prior knowledge to take this class and I promise you'll walk away after ready to make your space amazing.

Fun class! I am not big on flowers and was a little nervous when Sarah mentioned the final project involved flower arranging but in the end, I love the idea as it is temporary but lets you see the colors together and in the room they'll be incorporated into. It's a fin way to help visualize everything and make additions/subtractions as necessary before committing. I would have liked more information in the psychology of colors chapter but overall, great class!
love the tips on how to incorporate your favorite item's color, into a color scheme.
great course i lovet
