The Academy of Decoration and Design is the teaching arm of Kurved by Design.

Director, Kellie Richardson has designed two separate courses and runs them in house at Kurved by Design.

Kellie says, "I have loved building Kurved by Design into a successfull 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.

My 3 hour masterclass is for anyone selling a property or preparing one for sale. These students learn how to make properties shine and achieve the highest possible price.

Those that enrol in my longer course, 'Creating my Style' become a close team, as we do a deep dive through all aspects of interior design. I thoroughly enjoy working with and getting to know my students over this 8 week course.

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!

My students walk away with the confidence they need to take on any space. Afterwards, we stay in touch and celebrate our successes."
