I am teaming up with NYIAD to bring you a series of blog posts that dive deep into the interior design course and what it’s all about! If you have stumbled here, you may be wanting to become professional or even decorate your house with a little more structure! I’m going to go over each unit as I complete them and offer a little more insight to what you can expect!

UNIT ONE: NURTURING YOUR INNER DESIGNER
This unit has A LOT of information! My biggest advice is to take notes as you read and listen to the videos; just jot down the important information or things that you didn’t know before.
This unit will walk you through:
– The elements of a successful room
– How to measure rooms + drafting
– Your first room rough sketch
– Real estate staging
– Working with clients + developing a relationship with them
– How interior designers charge for their services
– Using technology + programs in interior design
– Color Basics (you get to mix your own paint, too!)
A lot of information, right?! It was so helpful to learn about the behind the scenes and what really makes a room beautiful. I know we can all recognize a well designed room but understand WHY is huge. Everything that you will learn in Unit One will give you such a strong foundation to dive even deeper into design.
UNIT ONE PROJECT
For the unit one project you will complete your very own rough sketch of a room (yours or someone you know) and also fill out some a “room condition checklist” and “lifestyle questionnaire”. You will go over these throughout the unit and learn how to properly measure a room, draw it, and answer questions with your clients to properly meet their design needs!
