The course is designed to translate the theories of design into reality through the placement of beautiful objects into perfectly planned spaces: where great design blends with carefully-selected furniture and pieces of art. There will be site visits to local specialist suppliers to research and evaluate the availability of designer furnishings for use in interior design schemes, as evidenced in references, trade journals, magazines, exhibitions, and seminars.
A resource sketchbook will be established to record ideas, collate information, images and visual or verbal stimuli for use in current and future projects. Participants will be involved in practical assignments and case studies, where they will familiarise themselves with the terms and definitions relating to the principles and methods of selecting furniture and accessories to achieve the desired effect.
Participants will learn the principles of design styles and their effects on the human mind. The theory will be reinforced through research, observation, and experimentation with particular emphasis on underlying design approaches, philosophies, constraints, influences and areas of innovation.
