ABOUT THIS COURSE

Expertly design rooms. Turn a shell of a room into a fantastic space beyond your clients’ expectations


“A room should never allow the eye to settle in one place. It should smile at you and create fantasy.” - Juan Montoya

Oh, Juan...you hit the nail on the head! An expertly designed room should smile at you! But, not all do!

That’s why everyone could use the expertise of a great interior designer. Someone who can take a basic room and make it the most sought-after space in the house. Someone who can implement all that their client desires and add surprise touches that she didn’t even know she needed or wanted! And, that someone could be you!

Interior designers, home decorators, contractors, bloggers, vloggers, and many other professionals can use interior design to either earn a living or improve their credibility in their field. Think about some of your favorites in the biz...Joanna Gaines, Nate Berkus, and Emily Henderson for example. Isn’t that what they’re doing? And they’re getting paid for all of those fabulous designs!

You can turn your creativity, ingenuity, practicality and inspiration into a career as a sought-after interior designer - just like the ones you see on television or read about in your favorite blogs. All it takes is the skills - which we’re here to help you with - and the drive - which we’re sure you’ve got!

100% AUTHENTIC STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

I am so very excited to begin my new career in Interior Design and putting my Furniture Restoration skills to use creating a new furniture line! Trendimi you ROCK! Autumn Coleman - United States

I really enjoyed the Interior Design & Home Style course. Trendimi is very trendy and edgy for the up-and-coming users and students of this modern-day society. I was able to easily navigate the course, work at my own pace and spend time on the areas that I wanted to specialize in according to my needs and my lifestyle and career of choice. Trendimi really gives someone with a busy life the ability to learn and study whatever course they may choose. Taliana  SNELL - United States

This course was fantastic! I am a real estate agent and my objective was to gain knowledge for staging homes, decorating ideas, and I love being educated in different fields. This was so much more than I anticipated and the information about marketing can also help in my current career. Even if someone wasn’t going to try and be certified as an interior designer, I still highly recommend this course. Oscar Wilde said: "You can never be overdressed or overeducated," and I agree. Mary jo Tort-Bergeron - United States

I enjoyed the Interior Design and Home Styling course from Trendimi. The course is fresh and modern in its appearance and relevant in its content. The quizzes helped assure me that I was learning and gaining information. My progress was always displayed at the top of the screen — which helps busy students manage our time. For the money and ease-of-use, this course is definitely worthwhile! Krista Gross - United States

I took the Interior Design course just to learn more about decorating. The material was well written, and definitely a great course to take if you have an interest in becoming an interior designer. It was very informative. As a full-time Realtor in Miami, it was a complementary course to help my clients see beyond the shell of a home. Josie Mijares

I loved the course and enjoyed learning all the elements to be a successful interior designer. I'm excited to show and apply everything I have learned to myself and future clients. Jessica Vega - United States

I must say, I am totally impressed with the course of study I took on Interior Design and Home Styling. I enjoyed being able to study after work and enhance my skills. All areas of the business were covered, and thoroughly. I'm proud of myself for putting forth the effort and making it happen for me. Thank You for everything Trendimi! Paulette Coney - United States

This course gave me a lot of valuable information regarding interior design. Before taking the course, I only had an idea of getting into this field. But now that I have completed it, I am very excited to become an entrepreneur. I like that the course was broken down into modules that focused on specific aspects of this field. This helped me understand different concepts, including a history of the field I was not familiar with. I also liked that throughout the course the main ideas of interior design that were mentioned in the first module were always brought back up into later classes. This was helpful in remembering main concepts. Kimberly Singletary - United States

The cost was attractive, and I liked the idea of an online Interior Design course. It gave me tremendous background knowledge and introduced me to the business side of interior design. I liked that the exam was at the end of each Module; I could retain information and be tested immediately after a Module. Fada Chaconas - United States

"I've always been interested in Interior Design but didn't know where or how I should start learning. When I saw your course for Interior Design it looked like the perfect solution! I learned SOO much! I have a good eye for designing but didn't know how to use it. Everything I know about interior design is pretty much from your course! It was so informative! I now feel like I'm equipped to go. I loved how organized and thorough the course was, and it was really nice having everything in various modules according to the topics. I now feel like I’m equipped to go and start my own business after a little practice" Ari Johnson - United States

I recently signed up for the Interior Design eLearning content and couldn’t be more pleased! Trendimi offers a very comprehensive and educational bank of information on the subject that exceeded my expectations. I’d highly recommend them for evolving your education on any discipline!
