Interior Design Courses Surrey

The short course is an intensive 3 day interior design course taught by a graduate teacher in an award-winning property. It is aimed at those wanting a professional finish in their own home, but it is also for anyone looking for a new direction.


The key principles of design and decoration are explained and illustrated with lovely examples. Everyone leaves with something to treasure (their portfolio), a certificate, and information about a new way to decorate. This is a simple system that involves decorating around a picture - either art, or from another source such as a styled magazine shoot. These 'curated images' result in a more original look, and make the whole process of decorating a room virtually foolproof. It really is a trailblazing new way to go about design (hence the Telegraph award).

For those looking for a new direction, the portfolio can be taken to interviews, and the extension pack used to kick-start a small business.

Each course is highly structured to ensure excellent results in minimum time - and standards are high - but the approach is friendly and kind so everyone is welcome. They take place towards the end of the week (10am-4pm) in the Spring and the Autumn, and numbers are kept low to allow for personalisation.


The Spring 2024 courses are all fully booked, but there are a couple of places remaining on a course taking place on the 9th, 10th and 11th of October. The cost is £1125 to include lunch and all of the equipment. 



A black fabric portfolio case with mount board and art sleeves, a scale ruler, a colour wheel imported from the States, a booklet with all the key principles, and the extension pack.

Lunch takes place in the 54ft former milking parlour where you look out onto a garden designed by a Chelsea gold medal winner - it really is a course like no other.
