The course begins with a comprehensive introduction to professional interior design, incorporating the role of the interior designer within the industry.  Residential design basics are introduced, along with a basic overview of the client-designer relationship.

Unit 2 - Interior Design Principles

The principles of design form the core focus of the second unit, in which candidates explore several key considerations including Contrast, Balance, Scale, Proportion, Unity, Variety and Emphasis. Candidates investigate the importance of each and begin to build an understanding of quality interior decorating.
