because it very easy to following and keep up. Also the video are a great help as you are able to stop them so you can write down note plus you get to see the type of style mentioned in the course.

This is the first of any kind of interior design course I have ever taken since I decided to get serious with my design passion. I was excited at the start and was a bit distraught when it ended which is a good thing actually*smiles*. Thank you Rushika!

I absolutely love this course. I decided to take this before taking the decision on going for a big one. It not only explains the basic but also goes a bit deeper. However, I think it should have more practising excercises. Overall, I enjoyed taking this course.

I really enjoyed this course. Short and concise videos with lots of photos and examples for everything described. The instructor is sweet and has a pleasant voice.

Yes. I have obviously observed all these styles, but the course identified the main elements of each style for me. That was new. I also learned that blending styles should be done through a common element; for example, the same colour palette. Is it possible to get the actual script?

For someone who is completely new in this field I often felt that expecially the example pictures provided in the course were unrealistic and not applicable to the real world because next to noone would design their home that way. Having pictures which resemble a typical well designed home instead of exotic projects done by interior designers would really help to get an idea of how to apply the principles learned. + 1 Star for responsive and helpful instructor

Easy to understand, well explained principles and all you should know before you get into the projects of designing and transformations of your interiors.

Course was a good intro for me, as I had no background in this whatsoever. Audio quality could be improved, especially during the intro/outro parts of the course. During one of the lectures a section was repeated twice. It would be nice to have another room design example; like the bedroom example but in a different style and with a different type of room.

What a wonderful comprehensive course! Have learned a lot so far. The instructor is very knowledgable and the images she has compiled for this course are very helpful in understanding the concepts, and just beautiful. Already learned about a few things I was doing wrong in my home, will have to fix them now! :)

I am an architect with experience in designing homes and interiors. While I would consider myself an expert in this field I learned a lot from the course and felt that it was a well-thought-out and comprehensive guide! I appreciated the background info regarding style and principals, especially for those who aren't as familiar with them. I think it gives non-designers a chance to understand what's out there and help them hone in on their own preferences. But not only does the course give beautiful examples to look at, it also give practical resources and tools for actually doing the work, like the lumen calculations, and measurement guidelines. And thank you so much for such a comprehensive vendor list grouped by price range! It's so helpful to have these all in one spot! Finally, I wanted to say that my favorite part was the example that she walked through step by step at the end. It was so interesting to see all the principals coming together in practice and the space was so beautiful....all done on a budget!!! Love it!

This is an excellent comprehensive course on intro to design principles and various interior styles. It's easy to understand and follow for even a beginner like me. The articulateness of the instructor and brilliant images keep you engaged throughout the course. All in all, this course was super helpful and enlightening!
