Introduction to Interior Design

Are you a creative person with an eye for design? If so, this course will show you how to transform plain living spaces into beautiful and functional rooms.  Interior design takes training as well as talent, and these lessons will give you the know-how you need to design a room from floor to ceiling. You’ll delve into color theory, industry trends, spatial arrangements, floor plans, traditional and modern interior design ideas, and other basics. In addition, you’ll explore a range of careers in interior design and get insider tips for entering this exciting field.  Because interior design is constantly evolving, you’ll also learn about some of the latest trends affecting the industry. You’ll investigate “green” sustainable design, and you’ll find out how to modify your designs for people with special needs.  As you master design skills step-by-step, you’ll complete your first project: a fully developed room design complete with spatial layout, lighting, and finish selections. Your new knowledge and hands-on practice will give you the confidence you need to start creating beautiful residential interiors for yourself and others.  This course is taught online through our partnership with Ed2go.  To log into your online classroom, please visit www.ed2go.com/hvcc and select My Classroom. Please note, it may take 24 - 48 hours before your registered course appears in My Classroom.
