    I had such a great time and learned a lot of tips/tricks from Kandy. She offered her expert advice, and it was tailored to each student's personal style. I liked how we got to bring in pictures of our own space(s) and she consulted with us on ways to improve the physical space. I would definitely recommend this class to a friend.

    This was exactly what I hoped it would be. It was a great way to get some guidelines, resources, and ideas. Not just ideas on exactly what to do - but ideas on how to generate decisions. Wonderful class!

    Awesome class. Awesome instructor. I didn't know what to expect from this class but left feeling inspired and ready to get my creative juices flowing. Kandy is funny, knowledgable, and helped me see the beauty in places and I would've never thought to look. I highly recommend this class for anyone who has an interest in interior design or just needs some guidance on a specific room in their home.

    We really enjoyed this class! Kandy was very organized and gave a great presentation, which offered a lot of inspiration. We especially appreciated the overview of different decorating styles, which gave us an idea of what to search for as we're looking for new pieces. Each person got to bring photos of one room they needed help with. The specific suggestions from both Kandy and others in the class were very helpful.

    From Teacher:

    Thanks so much for your lovely review. I can't wait to see what you do.

    I got exactly what i wanted from this class which was some good advice on what to do with my space at home. The instructor gave a basic lesson on interior design which was very helpful, but my favorite part of the class was when she displayed the pictures of the spaces of the students there and gave feedback and ideas on what do to with the space. I've already put up curtain rods in my living room and bedroom and will be sewing my own curtains soon. I'm also rearranging my space as well. I feel like my eyes were opened to fresh ideas.

    From Teacher:

    I am so happy to hear that you've already started redesigning your space! Thank you so much for your lovely comments.

    A bit overpriced for being fairly basic. I don't feel that I learned anything new. Nice that you can bring a photo of your home to discuss but with so many people in the class, there isn't much time to spend on each one. If the class was less expensive, say $15 instead of $25, I would feel a bit better about the class.
