I thoroughly enjoyed the one day course.  It was a small group of like minded ladies who enjoyed good course materials and an informative teacher.  I have certainly learn't something which I can use for future projects whether large or small.  I have also gained a more critical eye when looking at magazines or instagram etc. in order to develop ideas for my own house.

Highly recommend 'The Key Principles of Interior Styling' with Melissa.  It's given me the confidence to break out of my house styling rut.

I have loved my day.  A perfect mix of learning, bouncing ideas off each other and getting some really practical tips and information for my upcoming renovations.  I am really inspired!

I loved the written information to take away for reference.

I loved doing the mood board/image board and working with the visual aids. 

There was nothing that I did not enjoy!

Very enlightening - I didn't realise how many principles are involved in interior design until I attended this course.
