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

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

Kellie says, "I have loved building Kurved by Design into a successfull business and have had many people ask me to share my knowledge over the years. Now, through the Academy of Decoration and Design, I can help others follow their passion and develop their skills. I'm going to share all my secret tips with my students so they can enjoy creating amazing homes.

My masterclass is for anyone selling a property or preparing one for sale. These students will learn what to do, to gain the highest possible price.

I can't wait to meet the students that enrol in my longer course, 'Creating my Style'. We will do a deep dive through all aspects of interior design.

Both courses are really fun and unique and will suit anyone with an interest in interior design. They are all in person in our beautiful showroom and based around hands on learning. Our students will have full access to our property staging warehouse so students can bring their designs to life!

My students will walk away with the confidence they need to take on any space."
