We will learn how to create a themed mood-board specific to your creative ideas. We will learn how to better understand the principles of colour theory and how to mix colours that are not muddy. We will look at visualising our spaces with some basic drawing techniques and look at how to measure and scale drawings to help understand the overall design. By looking at trends and style appropriate to your space before spending a penny on materials, those expensive mistake are going to be avoided, or so we hope.
