My online design class now live

Morning, I am super excited to announce that I have turned my current design class into an online course. So if you can’t make it in person to the classes held regularly in London, NYC, Melbourne and Sydney you can now do the class online anywhere!

The course runs from May 1 until May 15th and covers everything that is in the current class plus a little more, also course material will be available on the site 4 weeks after the course has finished. Each week I’ll up load new modules including (don’t panic) some light homework, its totally optional plus you’ll be able to connect with me and fellow students through forums and other channels throughout the weeks the class runs.  For this very reason, I hate to say spaces are somewhat limited!

I should also say that you don’t need oodles of money to pull off one of my interiors, HOWEVER and this is a big fat however you will need to bring to the table a large dose of confidence and the ability to think a little differently.

Its time to fasten your seat belts as I’ll be taking you on a visual kaleidoscope journey, imparting knowledge and challenging you to look at interiors in a whole different way. Cannot wait!

  1. Morning! You gave me some great advice about different colours in different rooms but with the same palette/tone to make it work. Well, i’m still working on that as i have no sense of unity.
    Anyway, its monday and a new challenge ahead and i have a question? When is coving too much, and what is the best to pick? I live in an upstairs victorian house conversion and want to inject some original features but the problem is that i don’t know what style it would’ve been, or if it would’ve been in all rooms. Any suggestions?

    • If you google image Victorian coving lots of different pics will come up and it will make it easier. I tend to go for fatter more ornate coving but that is purely a personal choice. I wouldn’t worry so much about it being to much, if you feel the room is lacking architectural detail and needs coving go for it I say

  2. so excited – just nabbed a spot. I’ve already got a thriving design business and find you utterly inspiring. am so excited to hear more – in the (online) flesh! thanks for doing this so those of us in California and other spots can partake.

    • More than welcome, am excited to be taking the course on line. Speak to you in May and very jealous you are living in California!

  3. Hi Abi, just booked myself on the course after a morning of total chaos. Thoroughly enjoyed your retail master class which inspired me no end. Are you planning to do any courses on wholesaling? A friend and I upcycle vintage chandeliers which is proving popular. We’re keen to manufacture but worry that any samples we send to China will be copied. It would be good to manufacture in the UK where we can visit the factory ourselves but I think the cost may be prohibitive.

    • Very exciting look forward to connecting again in May. We aren’t I plan to say doing any courses on wholesaling sorry about that. I wouldn’t so much worry about being copied as soon as you design something good people copy anyways its how it all seems to work. With China you will have to invest in large minimum orders in the UK you can produce smaller quantities and its easier to visit the factories when problems arise (which they always do). It is more expensive to get things produced here – but from experience people don’t mind paying a bit more for British made

  4. Woo Hoo! Am unfeasibly excited about this Abi. Have booked my online course. Roll on 1st of May – am counting the sleeps. Have just run around house with cardigan over shoulders ‘Superman stylee’. This has made my year. Thank you x

  5. This may be stretch – we aren’t able to buy farrow and ball in Australia – would you have any idea what colour downpipe may be closest to in any other paint range – dulux, British paints, murobond, porters?

    • Its quite hard to tell by just looking at them online but check out Murobond and Horizon by Mr Jason Grant or Porter paints Obsidian.

  6. Deeply excited to have booked a place. Even though I am only across the water haven’t managed to get across in the flesh due to hectic schedules, so am thrilled to be able to attend! Yippee
