Hi! We’re Emma & Sonya, co-founders of TDS. We don’t believe in pressing cookie-cutter solutions on you, or merely teaching you how to ‘paint by numbers’. This is about digging deep into your desires, your lifestyle, and your functionality requirements, then showing you how to develop a design solution that combines those factors and captures the essence of you and your family.

Room by Room

Are you ready to go in depth to uncover the secrets of decorating each of the important rooms in your home? Over the course of 6 weeks we will teach you all the must-know, nitty gritty details about pulling your favourite rooms together in your home. Then we’ll round it up by showing you how to nail the finishing touches to create a happy and meaningful home. A home is never complete without a little bit of personalisation, yet this can be the hardest thing to do when decorating so we’ve built this course for those of you who may have started their decorating journey but lost their way, or those who spend their weekends re-arranging their living rooms yet still hate on it hard. We’ll detail all the juicy details from styling your sofa cushions, how to choose a bed head, what to consider when buying a dining table, how to create storage space and a guide on hanging art the right way. We’re sure you’ll finish this course with a pep in your step and a brand new attitude towards decorating. You might even enjoy it!  More »
