    Your Complete Interior Design Basics Guide - Episode 25 (Season 11 - INTERIOR DESIGN BASICS)

    Your Complete Interior Design Basics Guide - Episode 25 (Season 11 - INTERIOR DESIGN BASICS)

    This, believe it or not, is our final episode for what has been an epic season called “Interior Design Basics”. So, stay tuned, as I do a wrap-up for the season, give you some extra tips and ideas for your home’s interiors, and share some other great info with you.

    SHOW NOTES:

    As I said upfront, Interior Design Basics has been an epic season … with this episode being Number 25, and it’s been running since October last year. Phwoar hey?

    So, let’s do a bit of a wrap-up and reminder of the episodes, and I’ll share some extra tips along the way. You can use this as a reminder of episodes you might want to relisten to, or perhaps missed during the season.

    Throughout this season, I also shared with you information about our online course, Interior Design 101. 

    It’s an amazing course, which contains the full versions of all of the interviews I conducted throughout this season, plus loads more helpful info. 

    What’s brilliant is that we’ve broken each of the interviews into each of the individual questions, so you can literally find exactly what you’re looking for very quickly. 

    There’s also a design layout video for both bathrooms and kitchens … and I’ll talk a little bit later about the taster quickstart course I created, called the Kitchen Design Challenge, as you may be curious about that too. 

    If you haven’t checked out Interior Design 101, be sure to do so. It’s a DIY, self-study course, so you can jump in, take your time to work through it, and then grab the template interiors schedule that’s in there, and start working away on your selections for your home. Head to www.interiordesign101.com.au to learn more about the course, and dive in.

    Alright, let’s begin the season wrap-up!

    I really hope you enjoy this episode. Listen now.

So much useful information

I have only just found this podcast. I listen to it on my walks and in the car for the 30min drive to work. We have bought a house we want to retire to in about 4 years, and it will be a knockdown job But I am determined not make the same mistakes I made when we built our current house. I want to be equipped with all the necessary information even starting now. I have downloaded a course. I’m really excited.

Super helpful for those that have no knowledge base!

Fantastic podcast - have found it super helpful in planning our renovation and makes me more confident in decisions we are making. And it’s free! Have since purchased one of the online courses to delve a bit deeper - content is also very helpful and access ongoing.
