"I've been in the business for over 10 years and have to say, this will be the best collaboration of decorating solutions that has ever been taught for the do-it-yourself er", claims the Diva.
Typically reserved for formal interior design coursework, Marie will teach design principals including furniture layout, color theory, and groundbreaking solutions for decorating challenging rooms from her soon to be released e-guide, "Help! My room Has Issues, Mastering A Challenging Room".The class will be interactive, students are encouraged to provide pictures and room measurements of a room they'd like to decorate so Marie can provide instruction on constructing a total design plan. A digital camera and some computer skills are helpful but not totally necessary. The Diva will be revealing her favorite online furniture sources and easy online room planners as well.
Thanks to HGTV and the DIY Network Marie Grabo's interior decorating course comes at a good time. The decorating channels have brought interior design to the forefront Although interior design is considered a luxury, it's attainable for the average home dweller now with a little ingenuity and training.
Average homeowners are spending less on luxury services such as those provided by interior designers and are opting for their consulting services instead to learn the skills to do it themselves. They are so much more aware of how good design can affect their quality of life. "Home dwellers may be reluctant to spend lavishly on all new furnishings so they're updating what they have, mixing old with new, and getting creative with paint and accessories, states Marie. " We end up creating this "new decor" an eclectic style that's less fussy, and more conducive to how people live in their homes today, and I'm so grateful to help them achieve that. through this terrific course I'm so looking forward to teaching.
