Interior Design is an exciting and rewarding career, it is more than just having good taste and an eye for design. At the Australian Institute of Interior Design (AIID) we teach you more than just design. We teach you every step in the process from developing a style, creating floor plans, colour schemes, perspective room drawings, designing with space, dealing with builders, architects and tradesmen, creating lighting effects, sourcing & selecting materials and furniture, interior decoration and styling, working to briefs, working with clients, business & marketing skills, and more.

The Interior Design and Decoration Distance Course has been carefully structured using a systematic approach to learning. Through a series of 5 tutorials, we will provide you with a wealth of relevant knowledge, and will encourage you through exercises and assignments to research and explore concepts to develop essential design skills.

You will be shown techniques for finding inspiration, developing design ideas, formulating schemes, specifying and documenting your work, and communicating your design concepts using various presentation techniques.

The course is made up of a series of comprehensive tutorials each including interactive activities to prompt further consideration and ensure effective understanding. Furthermore, each tutorial will require the completion and submission of an Assignment relevant to the content of subjects covered.
