The interior home workshop


One-day Design Course


Redecorating or renovating your home this year? Get some creative insights and practical tips from the professionals in a hands-on design workshop.

Interior design workshop

Got a project in mind?

If you want to work on a particular room, please bring along any plans and photos you have – as well as anything you’re considering using (colour charts, fabrics, wallpaper swatches etc).

Don’t have a particular room you’d like to work on? Don’t worry! Just bring yourself and we will provide a room plan and all the tools you need to create a beautiful room.

Join BIID-registered interior designers Samantha Johnson and Nicola Burt for a fun, informative and hands-on workshop that will help you harness your inspiration into a harmonious home design.

In this one-day workshop, Sam and Nicola will share the benefits of their decades of professional experience designing amazing homes, hotels and workspaces.

They’ll talk you through the approach they take to designing a room that works on both an aesthetic and practical level. They’ll explain where they draw inspiration and where they draw the line. As they go, they’ll focus on crucial elements such as lighting; balancing and making appropriate use of colour, pattern and texture; and styling and accessorising.

Set in Sam’s home, this will be a relaxed, informal and fun day where you will come away bursting with creative energy – plus some handy design tools in your goody bag!

There are just eight places available, to ensure that you have plenty of time 1-1 with Sam and Nicola – and means you’ll be spending time with a small group of people who are just as passionate to learn about interior design as you are.
