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 characteristics

  • Common materials used in each style

  • Appropriate color schemes and patterns for each style

  • Window and floor covering options for each style

  • Lighting, artwork and accessories appropriate to each style

  • Retailers that carry furnishings for each particular style

We 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.

Finally, after 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.

This course is a great choice for anyone wanting to learn more about different interior design styles and how to mix them successfully on their own, and for interior designers who want to brush up their skills on different interior design styles.

Join 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 courses, "How to Use Minimalist Interior Design to Live your Best Life", "Use Eco-friendly, Sustainable Design to Improve Your Life", and "How to Design Your Dream Kitchen" 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.

I am so excited to equip you, and starting at Step 1, How to Discover your Interior Design Style. You need to learn what this is first because every other decorating decision will stem from this. We will be running through, in detail, what the 8 Main Interior Design Styles are today and how to recognize which one, or two, you fall into.

Step 2, you will quickly learn how to EASILY choose a color scheme for your decor and accessory items that you will decorate with, including how many colors and neutrals to use, and how to make sure that they match what colors and neutrals are already in the room you are decorating within.

Step 3, You will learn 3 different formulas that I use in my design business everyday.

-The first formula will be for Decorating every type of Fireplace Mantle, (including long, narrow, and short mantles) and how to repeat that same formula for a Console Table, Single Shelving and above Kitchen Cabinets and Hutches. Symmetrically and Asymmetrically. 

-The second formula will be for decorating any type of Shelving unit, Bookcase, or Built-In for a well balanced, beautiful design that can be easily and systematically repeated no matter how many shelves or units you may have.

-The third formula will be for any type of coffee table you may have (Fabric Ottomans and Bunching Tables included) using 5 key items and how to repeat that same formula for a kitchen or dining room table, an end table, or night stand.

Once you learn these formulas, I will show you how to disperse color throughout each design using my special method, The Zig-Zag technique.

Step 4 is the MOST exciting step! You will learn exactly WHAT items to use on every one of these surfaces for YOUR particular Design Style. You will know exactly what items to look for when you go out shopping, so there will be no more guessing when you are at the store!

Each of these will be accompanied with activity worksheets so that you can easily sketch out exactly how you want each surface to look like, with what items you want. There will also be a section on those activity worksheets to add in what colors and neutrals you want your items to be.

You will first establish a foundation and learn the fundamentals of How Colors and Neutrals Work. This will include Color Theory, just enough to be useful when learning color for choosing Paint Colors.

Next, you will learn how to spot an Undertone, which is the color beneath a color or neutral. This is a very important thing to learn as this will be the most essential component that will affect your paint color choices.

You will then learn how to look at and describe color. Whether that color or neutral is warm or cool, clean or dirty, light or dark. And then you will learn how to correctly combine them and how to incorrectly combine them.

After this you will learn how to work around the different elements in whatever space you choosing color for. These elements will either be Fixed Elements (Elements that are fixed in place) or Movable Elements (Furnishings, Textiles, etc.) These will be the starting point of your color scheme.

After you have learned these foundational concepts, we will run through several scenarios that you might encounter in your home. Whether you are just starting over in your home or you have to work around what you have, there will be a scenario to help you navigate your way through to the perfect paint color. These scenarios will also help you choose colors for not only paint but also for furnishings and any fixed elements that you may want to put in a space.

Once you have applied everything that you have learned, you will then master how to choose the correct lighting in your space, the best paint sheen, and the do's and don'ts for painting ceilings and other areas of your home.

Then lastly, you will learn the easiest and most effective way to test your paint colors BEFORE you ever paint your walls!

  • 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.

In this course, we will be sharing a café project which has been applied Teamwork Architects. We will share all the 2D AutoCAD drawings, 3D render visuals and the 3Ds MAX model that we have used while creating these visuals with you in our course documents and bringing them into your use. Our AutoCAD files are including survey plan, schematic plan, application drawings and detail drawings. Besides, our model is a ready to render scene which is including all the materials and rendering, lighting and camera settings.

Within the context of our project, we start with the interior architectural project phases and we detail that process in terms of our café. We talk about the importance of the first meeting that you would have with your employer, important points of surveying stage and share the survey images and drawings with you on the project development phase. On the conceptual project phase, we specify the factors that would affect our design decisions while organizing the café and we will be talking about the planning process. On the application phase, we are explaining the content of the application drawing package and detailing this phase by referring to the café project.

On the last part of our course, we are sharing the photographs from the site which is a running business at the moment and has been built according to our projects.

Our goal is to give information about the parameters that you should take into consideration while preparing an interior café project and making a contribution to your development on design. See you on our course.
