We also teach the technical and practical skills necessary to translate those design ideas into reality. Both versions of our course, the Certificate Course and the Diploma of Interior Design (MSF50218), are up-to-date and comprehensive, covering every aspect of interior design.

Perth, WA

My interior design journey has been incredible! I studied fashion design, but after renovating a restaurant, I realised I had chosen the wrong career path. I cold-called Perth’s top 20 interior designers to find work experience, until one day, Kristie from @elementsathome gave me an opportunity to work with her. She introduced me to IDI, so I signed up straight away.
