    “I thoroughly enjoyed the task of decorating a boutique hotel and loved the hands on practical approach which lead to the immersion in the interior decorating world. It was through these investigations that I learnt a methodical approach to decorating spaces as well as developing my own personal style. The feedback from the online tutor consolidated my learning and gently steered me in the right direction when need be. This course has given me confidence in my abilities which has lead to others asking for my advice as well as fuelling my renovation addiction! It has been an amazing learning journey that I am still on and I smile every day when I look at the home I created for my family.”
