I rebranded my business to Damp-Mould Consultation and Interior Designer - a unique service. By having an online appearance, growing my website platform, and updating social media, both previous and new customers will have the opportunity to gain from this service.
Fast forward 12 months, and I have successfully landed my dream role as a stager with Dressing Rooms Home Staging, an award-winning staging company in Yorkshire.
It is a great feeling when one can put the British College of Interior Design seal of approval on your business sites. A clear indication of success and achievement.
I hadn’t expected to be developing my own business in interior design, but that’s where I am. My business will trade as ‘Tactile Interiors’, which will be my life once our house is finished and fully furnished.
My first client knew I was a beginner and he was so impressed with my level of professionalism and detail that he is now a repeat customer.
I have completed three paid projects since graduating and looking forward to building on this success.
My work was recently featured in Sovereign Magazine as part of a 2 edition feature on women entrepreneurs in Switzerland.
Since completing my course it has given me the confidence to gain a couple of clients which I am working with at present and loving it.
The Professional Interior Design Course has given me the tools and skills I needed to take on projects for clients. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking for a career in interior design.
I am working towards materialising my dream of designing beautiful, functional spaces and bringing satisfied smiles to people’s faces.
A few months after I had graduated and received my Diploma of Professional Interior Design from the British College of Interior Design, my company, The Room Boutique, won the 'Best Show Home' award at the 2021 Home Staging Association Awards in our selected category.
Thanks to the College I have had the confidence to complete a few projects whilst studying, and since graduating I have set up my own freelance interior design business ... specialising in residential interior design.
I have completed two multi-occupancy interior design projects, and I am now working on my third residential project.
I have never looked back, as pursuing this training has opened so many doors for me through a career change, having my own business, working the hours that suit me and meeting creative designers.
I have become more confident, and I know now that if I pay attention to the project's important details and communication, the result of my work will delight clients.
The course has given me all the tools I needed to do succeed, from teaching me how to meet a brief to keeping track of the costings for a project. It covers professional practice for interior designers and I feel well equipped for the future.
I have opened my own shop in Geneva, Switzerland. Tempo D’éco sells sustainable furniture and ecologically responsible products from European designers and producers.
It was thanks to this course that I felt motivated to create Lacreate... During the course, I did some work, and the last one was a guest house for a client in Huambo (Angola). In this project, I deposited all my knowledge and passion for interior design and architecture.
I highly recommend the Professional Interior Design Course to anyone interested in interior design, whether it is a personal interest, a professional need or just looking to follow their dreams designing their ideal house.
The course has changed me from someone with no experience into a fully trained interior designer.
I found The Professional Interior Design Course fulfilling. The amount of information I learned in a short time is mind-blowing. The tutorials were easy to follow and fun to read. The assignments were interesting, nicely worded and had a brilliant option for all different types of learners...
Now I am positive I have found my passion and I am looking forward to making a positive impact on people's lives through my own interior design practice.
I learned which areas of interior design interested me the most and gained knowledge and skills to assist me in my professional career.
This course equipped me with the best and most effective tools for working in the field of interior decoration. [It] has allowed me to achieve a level of learning, confidence and maturity that marked the turning point in my design career.
I have now completed a number of residential projects from luxurious high end elegant homes to more relaxed beach side residences in Jersey, and sharp contemporary apartments.
Since completing the course, I have participated in designing the Addis Ababa International Airport VIP terminal, Ethiopian Airlines business class and other lounges, office spaces for insurance companies, real estate offices and a 5 star hotel with a luxurious spa.
The course has given me the tools to confidently take on a project from concept design to installation.
The course provided me with the confidence to work alongside an interior design business to gain further knowledge and work experience. I believe this was pivotal in setting up my own business.
The course has enabled me to rebrand and launch my interior design consultancy, Obion Décor Connoisseur, and set up a show room in Lagos, Nigeria.

My company has been entrusted to handle a lot of high end projects for private residential homes, religious homes, blue chip companies, and government premises. Our biggest single cheque grossed over 50 million naira (approximately £120,000)!
Currently, I am working as a design consultant in a retail furniture and building construction firm. I got the job right after I graduated from the course.
