The Academy of Decoration and Design

If you're passionate about interior design and looking for an online course in Australia that will help you refine your skills and deepen your knowledge, you're in the right place. The Academy of Decoration and Design is the teaching arm of KBD, wherein director Kellie Richardson has designed two separate courses and runs them from her base at KBD. 

Kellie says, "I have loved building Kurved by Design into a successful business, and many people have asked me to share my knowledge over the years. Now, through the Academy of Decoration and Design, I am able to help others follow their passion for interior design. I share all my secret tips with my students so they can create amazing homes."

The three-hour 'Masterclass: Preparing a Home for Sale' is designed for anyone selling a property or preparing one for sale. Kellie will explain how to make properties shine and achieve the highest possible price.

The eight-week course, 'Creating my Style', is a deep dive through all aspects of interior design. Here, students will work closely with Kellie as she goes through all the elements of interior design.

Kellie says, "Both courses are really fun and unique. They are designed to suit anyone with an interest in interior design. Our approach is hands-on learning. Sessions are held in person in our beautiful showroom. We provide students with full access to our property staging warehouse so they can bring their designs to life! I thoroughly enjoy working with and getting to know my students. I am proud to see them walk away with the confidence they need to take on any space. I enjoy staying in touch and celebrating their successes."
