What have you enjoyed most about studying with Interior Design Online?
Living in Perth I found that my options for studying interior design and decoration were limited, so I was thrilled to discover I could complete an industry accredited course online. The amazing and thorough feedback I received from the Educators throughout my course was incredibly valuable.

Don’t be afraid to email your Educators with questions throughout your course. They will always get back to you with in depth guidance and support to help you learn and grow and be inspired!
Your go-tos for inspiration…
I’ve subscribed to various interior design websites and blogs, and I enjoyed reading through them each day before I started my course work. It gave me that extra boost of creative inspiration.
I can’t live without…
My family! They are the ones who never stop believing in me, wherever life may take me.
Favourite recent interiors trends…
/ Resort-inspired style – especially in bathrooms, and rattan furniture.
/ Natural materials used in vessels and small sculptures with an organic feel.
/ Beautiful vignettes displaying potted succulents and personal pieces. It’s a great way to show some love to a neglected or overlooked area.
