I have not seen any other course offering like it. There is so much hands on learning, giving students the most valuable skills and knowledge for colour consulting, styling and business to be at the top of their game.
Eclectic Interior Design
I previously studied interior design and although colour was included in my subjects, I felt it was lacking... I would highly recommend the course, it’s given me so much more confidence in what I’m doing.

No, there isn't. You have the option to finish your studies within the 6 month period OR study at your own pace.
The Diploma of Colour Styling and Consultancy is a 6 month course, where a new unit is dripped every two weeks (accompanied by 1 implementation week in between) however, you will still have access to student support through 'The Circle' after the 6 month period ends.
The members of the group are extremely active and this amazing community is one of the most valuable places we’ve seen for students to get their questions answered.
Throughout the course, you will need materials like boards, glue, etc to put together beautiful sample boards. You will be able to get samples like fabric, flooring and paint swatches for free. You will have to pay for tiles if you like to use them in your boards.
All the software we use and recommend is free.
If you decide to start a business once you finish the course you will need to buy:
. A domain name for your new website (between $12-$20/year)
. Fandecks from the painting companies you decide to work with (avg $60/each)
Definitely! Ana will guide you throughout all the online tutorials and weekly Q&A.
Every time a new unit is dripped, you will have to dedicate between 1 to 2 hours that week to listen to the online lessons. During implementation week we expect you to dedicate a minimum of 3-4 hours to the assessments.
No. We know how important it is to enjoy quality time with children during school holidays. No new units or assessments will be due during that period. The 6 month period of study doesn't include school holidays breaks. You will get a calendar with all the relevant information once you start your course.
