Introduction to Interior design

Choose an online interior design course or interior design degree to express yourself through fabrics, furnishings and lighting. You’ll explore how fittings and fabrics can create more than a space—but a mood that inspires and encourages the best of its inhabitants.

Depending on the course you choose, you may also cover topics such as societal impacts on space, how behaviour changes as a result of interior design, sustainability and the impacts of artificial intelligence on the industry.
