Our visually beautiful workbooks are packed full of inspiration, helpful tips and easy-to-understand diagrams to show you just how easy it is to style your home.
Every week we support and guide you along the way & help answer any questions you have in our live forum group. This is your chance to style your home like a pro and join a group of interior lovers & homemakers. We can't wait to share this journey with you and help you create a beautiful home!
6 Week Online Course | A creative, fun & interactive online styling course available on any device!

All you need is an hour every week to watch the video and read the workbook!
1 x Weekly Video | Each week you watch a weekly video to not only get you inspired but to also show you key styling techniques and advice direct from the designers. You also get to see behind the scene shots of some of the most beautiful homes we've worked on. We will show you how to style your home step-by-step, from the coffee table to the bookcase and so much more!
1 x Weekly Workbook | Every week you can download your workbook, each workbook works in with the topic of the week and we go that step further than the video by sharing with you our key styling techniques, the base essential accessories you need before you start styling and help you to understand why its important to establish you theme & look before you start styling. The workbook is your handy reference tool that you can print out or keep on your phone for easy access. Best of all its yours to keep forever!
Exclusive Forum Group | The forum group is where the fun begins, join us and a group of like-minded people, share your problems and let us help you solve them! This is our little hub of fun where we can offer you suggestions and insights with any your styling mishaps! We also love the safe haven the forum provides the students, everyone encourages eachother to post photos of their home and as a group we help each person perfect their styling and love their home.
