INTERIOR DESIGN COURSES IN A
SURREY COUNTRY HOUSE
The short course can stand alone, but for those wishing to take things further, this extension day is dedicated to the clever short cut to room design that is explained on the three day course. It provides a deeper understanding of how the method can be used to create original and imaginative design schemes quickly and easily - compared to the already established methods of designing a room around a mood board or art work (see @sallysurreyhouse on instagram for examples of the latter). It is for those considering self-employment, wishing to add an interesting sideline to an existing business, and/or for pleasure. It came about following the observation that many students from the three day course went on to help others - using the system. This extra day highlights a range of ideas to aid and expand upon this goal. A loose framework to enable growth according to background, knowledge and experience.
The course involves creating bespoke schemes for individual rooms, as well as for a whole property. Received on the day are two black room scheme boxes, a USB drive with key information, a book of ideas, ribbon, and an A2 board depicting a case study. The case study is a simple and innovative take on what has gone before, and can be adapted to suit a range of purposes. The day costs the same as one day on the short course, and the next one is on Friday 1st November.
In relation to self-employment, men are twice as likely as women to start a business despite the latter being as eager to do so. The reason is a lack of self-belief, together with a lack of role models - only 5.6% of UK women run their own business, half the proportion in America (See the 2019 Rose Review of Female Entrepreneurship for more detail). The aim of this one day course is to help redress the balance. To inspire and encourage individuals to have confidence in their own ability and to create something that aligns closely with their skill set - hence increasing the chances of success.
There is no celebrity, no inflated promises, and no singing and dancing - just a private, honest, and calm, teacher (with her own successful business) aiding progress by sharing new ways of doing things. It is not a business, but ideas for a business.
