How often have you felt the need to create a more useful, pleasing arrangement within your room? Designing interior spaces is a basic desire for all of us. In this course, you'll take on the responsibility of reinterpreting the perfect bedroom for a teenage client not unlike yourself. You'll present a design brief, built around your client's expectations, that illustrates the design challenges that need to be solved. You and your classmates will then work together to develop solutions that are both practical and fantastic. You'll consider materials, colors, textures, fixtures and furniture, and then put it all together in a scale model that clearly illustrates a thoughtful and improved interior space.
