Discover the World of Scandinavian Interior Design

This online Scandinavian interior design course is a look into the guiding principles, guidelines, tools and techniques to create amazing projects of any setting. The course lasts three months with 24 lectures of three hours each. Topics will range from basic design elements, to furniture design, to plant maintenance and many more things that will assist interior designers in the overall process of creating a Scandinavian interior space. Every lesson will be taught by experts in the field and students will also be given exclusive resources and content for Scandinavian interior design. The 24 lectures are divided into two main parts.

First, there will be 16 lectures explaining Scandinavian interior design with its small details and general ideas. We will begin with an introduction session to create a base of knowledge from which the following topics will lean on to explore this type of design style. From there we will look at single elements such as color palettes, material selection, furniture, lighting, and flooring. We will explain how to go through the process of creating a concept along with mood boards and sketches to define the overall theme of the project and then choosing materials that align with the concept established in the previous step. Next, the course will take on looking at wall finishes, vegetation, entertainment areas, fireplaces, and storage solutions. These topics are secondary elements to Scandinavian interior design and make a big impact on the user’s experience within the space. With examples from famous designers, we will talk about how to implement these elements into our design in innovate, creative and functional ways. For the last section of the theory sessions we will talk about Scandinavian interior design for specific spaces within a home. These include bedroom, living room, kitchen, bathrooms, and home offices. We will tie in what we learned previously and identify the elements that characterize the rooms as well done Scandinavian interiors. We will also touch upon including statement pieces like paintings or sculptures to give that finishing touch to the projects we create.

The classes during the last month will be focused on designing four practical projects to put theory into practice by sketching, modeling, rendering and presenting different scenarios of Scandinavian interior design. The first project will be a bedroom for a young couple in an apartment who need to maximize the small closet they have for storage. The next challenge will be to design a kitchen for a house with three roommates. The third project will be a Scandinavian home office design. Lastly, students will need to design a Scandinavian living room and include an upright piano for the clients. Each project will be modeled in SketchUp. If you are unfamiliar with the program, you will have the chance to acquire all the necessary knowledge how to work with it. At the end of the course, the students has a practical exam and presents their projects. With all practical tasks and developed projects, students will finish the course with a new level of knowledge and experience that will enable them to take on any type of Scandinavian design in the future.
