The course I took.
I’ve talked about my Interior Design studies and how much I’ve enjoyed the course I took before: I’ve posted about it on here since the very beginning, and gave some updates on my channel.
I came across The Interior Design Institute last summer, and got my diploma in January, but recently they reached out to me and offered to give away a free course for one of you, marzipans!
It’s an online course, which allows you to study at your own pace, and once you join it, you are paired with a teacher that helps you through it by giving you book suggestions, tips, and grades your assignments.
There are 12 Modules to complete, all incredibly well structured, and at the end of each, you get to put to the test your newly acquired knowledge and skills.
In the beginning, you get to study the basics and history of Interior Design, to then put it into practise by following a renovation project for a client, that carries through as you move forward with each chapter.
When I came across this course, last summer, I knew I wanted to start studying a new subject, but I didn’t know how much I was going to enjoy it, and how useful I would find it. Since graduating, I believe that I’ve developed a much clearer sense of design, when it comes to my own renovation projects and decor; I understand the process of creating an harmonious and balanced environment, and I’m able to appreciate different styles, knowing how they developed over time.
I’ve since been able to start my own projects; in fact, in the past, I had redone my bathroom, and left every decision to a designer: both Felix and I were quite underwhelmed with the results achieved – as we weren’t able to express what we really wanted and the look we were going for – so when it came to the kitchen, after studying Interior Design, I was able to follow the entire process and make all the decisions directly.
My point is that, even if you are not thinking of doing this as a full-time career, having the knowledge is very helpful, if you have an interest in this subjects. It can save time and money, stimulate your creativity, and help you create the best space for yourself.
Alright! It’s been exactly 48 hours since I posted this, and now the winner has been selected.
Because this was such an important giveaway, with 700 entries and only one winner, I wanted for the selecting process to be as clear and honest as possible, so I’m sharing what I did: I asked Twitter.
As I said, there were 700 comments, which get divided every 50 into a new page, which means 14 pages. I asked you to pick a number at random, and I’ve took the first reply. That gave me page 8.
Then I did the same with the 50 comments in that page, and the first reply was 28.
After going through the comments, and checking multiple times (I counted spam comments as just 1, and didn’t consider the ones only writing #IDstudent as the rules said you had to specify why you wanted to enter the giveaway), here is the winning comment:
Thank you all for showing so much interest in this giveaway, I’m sorry that only one person could win, but I’m hoping that I will be able to do something similar for you in the future.
You can check out the course over HERE and you can also take a look @theinteriordesigninsitute on Instagram for some inspiration.
I’m so happy to be collaborating with them to bring you this cool opportunity, so I really wanna thank The Interior Design Institute for doing this.
