I’m newly retired, and one of my projects is to do up my house now I have the opportunity, this winter seems an ideal time. I’d like to do an online interior design course, there seems to be loads of options but I’d prefer to have some personal recommendations (or condemnations) if anybody on here has done one - good or bad?
Design courses cover a lot of areas that might not be of use to you unless you are hoping to branch out into doing it for others. Choose one that doesn't focus too much on customer requirements, measuring, technical drawing and costing etc.
DD2 did one when her children were small. I'll ask her which one if you like.
I did my course with The British Academy of Interior Design. They offer several levels of course, up to post Graduate Diploma. The course materials and feedback were excellent. You get your own personal tutor and it can be taken entirely on line, or you can attend seminars at weekends. Have a look at their website.
Interior design is what I’m after, rather than just decoration as I’m up for knocking walls down and reconfiguring spaces to work better. Thanks J52, I’ll look into The British Academy of Interior Design as that sounds like a good option.
