What others say about the workshop:

‘I have struggled at the start of my project to put all the ideas on paper and specify what I pictured. But with Simone’s guidance I managed to narrow down my path to what should become my concept. I would highly recommend Simone`s course to others if you want to gain a sound understanding of design principles and to enhance your own ideas. There is so much more to interior design than I realised and I’ve learnt a vast amount during the course. Simone offers a fountain of real world knowledge and advice. She provided me with excellent guidance throughout the course and promptly answered my questions. The modules were exciting, easy to follow and covered everything you need to know to start working on a design concept.’ Agnes Lonska, Civil Engineer, Basel

‘The workshop was well prepared, fun and hands-on. We learned about basic styling with color, which is a good starting point. The mood board is also a great tool to design a concept for any room. I enjoyed creating one, and also Simone’s great hospitality and home made apple tart!’  Juliette Fong, Webdesigner, Basel
