Everything you need to know to plan your colour scheme like a pro! Choosing colours for your home is one of the most enjoyable aspects of interior decorating. But with so much choice, where to start can be feel little confusing - even for experienced designers! Kick-Starting with fun and effective techniques designed to help you to find your inspiration and get your creativity flowing, this course will show you everything you need to know about choosing colour and planning a stunning colour scheme for your home. Find out how your personality influences your colour preferences and learn how to evaluate the colours that will work best in your room and for your interior decorating scheme. With plenty of useful top tips along the way, we’ll be looking at the different approaches you can use for planning your colour scheme as well as the different elements you need to take in to account when making decorating decisions. No previous experience of design or decorating is necessary and additional notes are included as part of your course. There will be a combination of short lectures, visual illustration, interactive discussion and active participation, by the end of which you will have some practical tools and clear step-by-step guidance for confidently creating your own colour palette for your home decorating project. Topics we’ll cover are: • Finding inspiration for your colour palette • Colour and your personality • Assessing the light, space, shape, furniture & fixtures of your room • Developing your colour palette • Planning your colour scheme • Decorating dilemmas - overcoming those troublesome details • Should blue and green ever be seen? The do’s and don’ts of successful colour combinations • Which paint brands to choose and why
There will be some recommended activities for you to complete between classes (approximately 0.5 – 1.0 hrs)

About Me

Hello! I’ve been working in the interior decorating and design world for more than twenty years providing colour advice and educating individuals and businesses on the use of colour in design and the psychology of colour.

I began as a freelance interior decorator and paint effects specialist, when inspired by my clients’ colour choices, I decided to learn more in-depth about the subject of colour. I studied with foremost colour psychologist Angela Wright of, before founding my own consultancy in 2006 to advise on the use of colour in design, creating interior colour specifications for private and corporate clients and colour ranges for paint companies.

As well as working for many lovely clients (I love the fact I was once described as ‘the colour ninja’!), including as brand spokesperson and consultant for Painthouse, I’m a keen advocate for developing colour education. I’ve delivered specialised courses and workshops on the effects of colour in design for professional designers and agencies, home improvement companies, homeowners and design students, in addition to educating on colour theory, colour psychology and trend forecasting for KLC Design School, London.

Each Learned.Live teacher is awarded a 4 star review for every one of their courses we have approved, in line with our assessment. This is why some teachers will display more than one 4 star review from Learned.Live if they have had multiple courses rigorously assessed by our team. We would not approve a course application if we did not feel it warranted a default 4 star review. Teacher star ratings are an average of each of their courses star ratings and will become modified as more students review their course(s) over time.
