Last year, many of us spent more time at home than ever before. At the same time, much of our lives shifted online – from Zoom meetings for work, to virtual parties with friends, a lot of us have become far more tech savvy out of necessity. The situation has also highlighted what is truly important and what we want out of life. With this comes a desire to revisit old skills and hone new ones through doing what we love. Gone are the days when you had to work around your job. With a flurry of courses now 100% online, you can make your own schedule. We have selected the interior design courses that you can do from the comfort of home – whether you’re just embarking on your interior passion, or a pro looking to perfect your craft.
