The Diploma of Interior Design and Decoration will provide you with the skills and knowledge required to provide design and decoration advice for building interiors.

During your studies you will develop skills in researching and analysing client requirements, spatial planning, selecting and specifying complete decoration solutions for residential commercial projects, preparing reflected ceiling plans for power and communications services, and preparing design reports and documentation for projects.

The structured course will enable you to work with a client brief and within project parameters. The projects cover an understanding of the application and effects of colour and pattern in interior spaces, the application of historic furnishings styles and their relationship to architectural periods, and current practice.

You will also learn how to work with builders, architects, suppliers and contractors, and how to provide them with working and contract documentation.

Subjects cover the development of complete decorative schemes for the effective use of designed residential and commercial interior spaces.
