About Course

This first course is the inside scoop, the fast-track, and the real deal on how lucrative and rewarding this job can be…and of course, there’s some practical lessons too.

We’ll start out broad and then take a deep dive into what it takes to become a successful interior designer.

You will learn…

  • the tools of the trade (programs we use to communicate design plans to clients)
  • how to market yourself to get clients (website, social media, press)
  • where to source home furnishings direct and skip the big box stores (going to market, establishing vendor relationships)
  • how to create a winning portfolio when you’re just starting out (or how to finesse your existing portfolio)
  • the design process from start to completion on a client project (contracts, floor plans, concepts, renderings, and more)
  • how to price out your services (charging hourly vs a flat rate)
  • how to hone your design skills (hint: design inspiration is everywhere)
  • and so much more, including plenty of laughs (we like to have a good time)

We won’t just be talking (boring!), in addition to the above curriculum, we will share design inspiration and review current trends and look at lots of pretty things! And there will be field trips and special guests who have big design brains for Q&A-style sessions.

From our Founder, Kami Gray: I’m ready to share what I know! I love motivating and inspiring people to have meaningful work that earns them a great living. Interior Design can be lucrative AND rewarding—if you think this might be your calling, but haven’t acted upon it or haven’t taken it to the next level, let’s fix that!
