Diploma of Interior Design and Decoration

National ID: MSF50213 | State ID: J744

 

Interior designers and decorators need to be creative, imaginative and artistic.  They also need to be disciplined, organised and skilled business people in order to be successful.  The programs in Interior Design and Interior Decoration offer students an understanding of the nature of environmental space and spatial ambience, with an ability to manipulate the relationship of spaces, objects and products within the surrounding space.

Students will develop the ability to approach a variety of design problems with creativity, a high level of competence and sensitivity to the requirements of the design brief.

This two-year qualification provides the practical skills and knowledge to develop a range of decoration and design services and provide interior design advice. Design projects enable the development of spatial planning skills to design some residential, commercial and institutional interiors. Developing and responding to client briefs, specifying FF&E (furniture, finishes and equipment) colours, lighting, hard and soft materials, fixtures and furniture, as well as skills in design spatial planning. Hand drawing skills, Auto CAD applications and specifying are all required to document and illustrate design proposals and develop a design practice.
Students will be working on simulated live projects with many different briefs from a wide range of industry disciplines. There are also opportunities to participate in industry visits and enter competitions that also engages with industry. From this students will be well prepared to enter into the workforce as a design consultant or continue to the Advanced Diploma to develop high level skills as interior designers.
