Students should have some paper and a pen or pencil ready for the activities.
Students should come ready to engage themsleves fully in a fun-filled training on interior design styles.


With so many different interior design styles available today, do you find yourself getting overwhelmed and unsure of how to choose a style or pull off a style well in your own home? It becomes even more complicated when you want to mix different interior design styles but are unsure of how to do that so it looks fabulous and well pulled together, instead of flat out chaotic.  To that end, this course has been created to help you understand the defining characteristics of 18 different popular interior design styles today so that you can either create one of those styles in your own home, or learn how to easily and effectively mix different styles on your own.  Please note that this course only covers the characteristics of various interior design styles.  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”That said, this course will go fairly deeply into 18 different and distinct interior design styles in areas that include:Defining furniture characteristicsCommon materials used in each styleAppropriate color schemes and patterns for each styleWindow and floor covering options for each styleLighting, artwork and accessories appropriate to each styleU.S. and international retailers that carry furnishings for each particular styleWe will also spend an entire section focused solely on how to mix styles well using a simple, formulaic approach.  You will learn how to do this both through a lecture approach as well as listening to 2 real life case studies.  You will also have an opportunity to practice your style IQ skills multiple times throughout the course so that you walk away feeling more confident about being able to more easily identify different interior design styles.Finally, before each style section, you will have an opportunity to take a style quiz to help you find out which interior design styles are best suited to you based on your preferences.  Once you find out your results, this may help you to determine which lectures you would like to watch or how to prioritize watching them.For bonus material, I have included a lecture with my favorite plant species for each of the 18 different styles.This course is a great choice for:Anyone wanting to learn more about different interior design stylesHow to mix them successfully on their ownInterior design students who are new to their fieldInterior designer professionals who want to brush up their skillsJoin me for a exciting journey into the world of interior design styles!IMPORTANT NOTES:If you are interested in taking most or all of my courses, I have a recommended order in which to watch them (although it’s certainly not required).  I would start with “How to Design a Room in 10 Easy Steps” because most of my other courses are in-depth classes of the concepts touched on in this 10 step class.  Following the 10 Step Course, I suggest moving on to “How to Use Color Like a Pro”, followed by “How to Work with Interior Design Styles Like a Pro”, then “How to Use Lighting Design to Transform your Home”, and finally “Design is in the Details”.  My other five courses, “How to Use Minimalist Interior Design to Live your Best Life”,  “Use Eco-friendly, Sustainable Design to Improve Your Life”, “How to Design Your Dream Kitchen”, “How to Design Your Dream Bathroom”, and “Everything Small Home Design” are all stand alone classes on specialty topics within interior design, and therefore, can be taken in any order.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.
