Interior Decorating Workshop for Teens

My Signature Bedroom is a workshop developed for teens ages 14 to 18 who want to learn the basic decorating principles and techniques to create a bedroom that shows their personality and style.  This life skills practicum gives students a quick and easy overview of the design process and they will learn practical skills and principles of good design.

Our curriculum includes the basic guidelines of interior decorating that students can easily learn and put into practice, such as identifying style components, creating methods to stay organized, using the principles/elements of design (color, texture, scale and balance) and applying them into their space.

In this exciting hands-on class, students will learn how to:

  • Space Plan (placement of furniture to create a natural flow in the space)
  • Resource the latest color and design trends to develop a plan
  • Shop for accents and accessories to bring all the design elements together to create and inspiring environment
  • Use of color, texture, and lighting
  • Recycle & Repurpose existing furnishings and decor
  • Look at a room and identify what's needed to complete the look

My Signature Bedroom is an educational, yet fun workshop where teens are empowered with real design know-how.
