Descripción

This course is a unique opportunity to learn directly from Marc Allum a leading arts and antiques specialist, author and broadcaster. From the historic to the post-modern, Marc has worked on a number of projects which illustrate the dramatic and yet subtle value of well-chosen art, antiques and design elements to produce classic and even challenging domestic and working environments.

We all have different tastes. This course will aim to expand your horizons by giving you a wide ranging insight into designing and decorating with originality. Based largely on a Marc’s eclectic precept that ‘anything goes’, his sense of style and his innate passion for objects allows him to advise on design outside of archetypal convention but also in an approachable and sometimes playful way; yet, his interiors draw on material ranging from the classic to the modern. As a result, this course will teach you to mix the affordable and the ordinary with both the valuable and the chic; it’s also full of practical advice on how and where to buy. Marc’s knowledge of fashion, history and craftsmanship allows a flexibility which will help give you the freedom to pursue the eccentric and assist you in sourcing affordable antiques which will flatter your environment in both a satisfying and stylistically unencumbered way.

  1. Choosing paint colours, wallpaper and taps can – for many - be a disagreeable and laborious process. Interior designers often run the risk of conflicts of taste with their clients and this frequently leads to disagreements. This lesson hopes to negate this by firmly establishing your own importance in the process by driving your design ideas, exploring one’s own voice and experimenting with new formats. By looking at sources and budgets, this will give you the confidence to visualise and plan interiors which are both liveable and striking, enforced with a buying confidence that demonstrates the affordable – and high end – opportunities that are waiting to be exploited.
