UNIT F OVERVIEW

INTERIOR DECORATING COURSE

Unit F of QC Design School’s Interior Decorating Course is the final step of your class. You’ll complete this last exercise before receiving your interior decorator certificate, and it will pull together everything you’ve learned in the course. In order to complete the project, simply follow the step-by-step instructions provided in this unit, and don’t be shy to show off your original ideas!

As part of your final project, the assignments will include completing a site evaluation form, taking before photos of a space (which can later be used as part of your designer portfolio), and drawing a professional level floorplan. You’ll choose a room in your home to use for the project, and specific guidelines will be provided in terms of which materials to use and how to present your work. Three different plans for the space will be required from you, which take furniture, doors, windows, and fixtures into consideration. You’ll then choose one layout and use this as your final design concept. This exercise will allow you to be creative and use your designer’s imagination, which are skills required of home decorators.

You’ll then create a presentation board, set a budget using provided examples as a template, and summarize your design concept. Think of this project as a way of bringing the skills acquired throughout the Interior Decorating Course to life, and a practice run for the work you’ll be doing once you obtain your certification.
