Room by Room eCourse
Let’s go in depth to uncover the secrets of decorating each of the important rooms in your home and pull them together to create a happy and meaningful home.
Want in on all the fun…? Here’s how…
Our brand new eCourse is a 6-week program delivered entirely online. We’re diving in deep with this course and showing you the exact steps to take in order to create a meaningful, real and happy home for you and your family to enjoy. We’re going room by room with this course and detailing each of the important rooms in our house - like the living room, the dining room and our bedrooms. The weekly modules include videos, worksheets, PDFs, checklists, shopping list guides, as well as a heap of other goodies like bonus videos that we are going to surprise you with during the course. PLUS there’s loads of guidance and interaction with us. We’ll be hanging out with you in our exclusive Facebook community and pinning up a storm in our private Pinterest group. (As well as being a whole lot of fun, this community aspect is guaranteed to start conversations, spark connections, and skyrocket your design and decorating skills.)

Module 3: Lounge Rooms
This week we continue exploring the Lounge Room area and we’ll be looking at the best ways to finesse your space. Now that the basics are in place, we’ll be looking into how to add those small details to create a polished look you’ll love.

Module 4: Dining Rooms
This week we concentrate on Dining Rooms and reviewing your dining room essentials such as table, chairs, sideboard, rugs and lighting. Casual family living has changed the way we use the dining space and this is often the other space in which you will spend a lot of time, so it’s important to get the basics right.

Module 5: Bedrooms
This week we look at bedrooms and how to make these a beautiful space no matter what your budget. Your bedroom is your sanctuary, your precious space to truly unwind and relax in. So often we pay the least amount of attention to our bedrooms because other rooms of the house cry out for the attention, like the living room, kitchen and even the kids rooms. But it’s about time we put ourselves first and paid some attention to our little slice of paradise and make it that gorgeous, intimate place we escape to of an evening either alone or with our significant other. We’ll be covering:
- Bedroom Furniture Essentials
- How To Choose A Bed Head
- How To Choose A Mattress
- How To Choose The Right Bed Linen
- Placing A Rug In The Bedroom

This week, we’ll be giving you all the extra hints and tips that will help you cruise through the design process and give your rooms and spaces that extra something special that truly makes all the difference. Having spent the last five weeks looking into specific rooms and spaces, by this week you will have a good grasp of the look you want to achieve as well as a detailed budget and purchasing plan in place. Get ready for:
- Lighting Your Home Properly
- Selecting Soft Furnishings

The Decorating School was incredibly beneficial across a number of decorating areas for me. Firstly, it helped give me a great understanding when it comes to the scale of a room and the furniture within and how things relate spatially to each other. Next up was the appreciation of colour and how best to mix and match and create mood and colour boards. Finally, and probably most crucially, it’s given me the confidence to make decorating decisions and stop the eternal procrastinating process JEN WILSON
Having recently moved into my absolute dream home I had no idea where to start with furniture. I wanted to start fresh with the new house but was so overwhelmed by the whole decorating process. Working through the 6 weeks of content I slowly found that not only was I learning so much about how to decorate a house but I also found that I really enjoyed it too. Can’t recommend the course enough! ELYSE DANIELS

WANT TO HEAR WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING?
Emma was an absolute pleasure to work with. She came into our home with confidence in how to give it the finishing touches it needed for the interiors. She transformed what we had into, what looked like a showroom. It suited our home and our family and she really understood what we needed. Not only is she a super talented interior stylist, she is a delight to be around! JULES SEBASTIAN
The Decorating School breaks down decorating and design in an easy to understand way, making it ideal for the beginner decorator or someone who simply wants to understand the process of decorating their own home better. Having known Emma Blomfield for some time, I know her supportive, encouraging nature will make her a great mentor throughout this course. LONI PARKER
This course is a great way for any novice who loves styling and decorating their own home but don’t have the skills. A great tool for anyone to use in their home. I would highly recommend it. What a great achievement Emma from Nest Designs. MICHELLE BALL
I felt such excitement about The Decorating School because Emma & Sonya’s approach to interiors is achievable, personal, and no-fuss. She lifts the veil of mystery that many interior designers like to shroud their work in. Emma & Sonya will instil a sense of Can Do into your decorating efforts; you’ll love how you feel in your home after doing this course. EMMA VEIGA-MALTA
I have worked with Emma Blomfield to run decorating workshops in regional NSW for the past few years, her approach to teaching workshop attendees to decorate is extremely supportive and brings a great deal of knowledge and experience to each workshop. Our attendees are so inspired with what they learn and keep coming back for more. I have no doubt that the decorating course Emma and Sonya have spent a long time preparing will invigorate and spark the decorating bug with the TDS students. MAREE OATEN
Where was this course when I was decorating my home?! Emma and Sonya have created a comprehensive guide to help you make your home off-the-charts gorgeous, no matter what your style or budget. Their expertise, passion, and unique approach to design makes this course a complete one-stop-shop for fabulous interiors. JESSICA LARSEN
