Interior Design Just Beyond Basics

In this five-week course we will work from the basic elements and principles of design and concentrate more on color and pattern, feng shui, and how to make your spaces fit your needs. We’ll include scale drawing with graph paper, so that furniture arrangements become clear by looking at the ergonomics of space—how much space it takes to perform specific tasks. Lighting will be discussed, concentrating on what’s new in the market. Aging in place can be much easier when it’s thought out beforehand and you can adapt as needed!
