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.

Sarah is such a great instructor! As a total interior design and color theory newbie, she breaks down what to think about when designing your own space in an approachable way. She got me really excited to start redecorating my paratment, and provided some really handy tools for doing so!
Nice review of the color wheel for beginners :)
Very good explanation of how the color wheel works for all situations. I love this class!
