HOLISTIC INTERIOR DESIGN DIPLOMA
Natural Interior Design for Harmony and Health
16 Lessons by email, CD or workbooks (UK only)
This is a totally different approach to Interior Design that is in keeping with the growing need to create beautiful stress free live and work interiors where individuals and businesses can thrive.The role of our environment in our physical and mental well-being has for too long been ignored so Holistic Interior Design emphasises the importance of creating interiors that are meaningful, life-supporting and in harmony with the individuals who will be using them.
In this specialist distance learning course you will learn how to engage sensitively and responsibly with the local environment, the building itself and the needs of the occupants, enhancing the flow with harmonious layouts, using natural materials and enhancing elements of light, colour, around and sound.
Practising designers will find this course allows them to use their talents in a new way and to offer their clients a more personalised service. With the growth in environmental health concerns there is also a growing demand backed by the government in the UK for advisory services in this field. No previous Interior Design training is needed although this course compliments and extends traditional Interior design study. If you are a practicing designer we recommend you take the advanced level.
