    Great class. Kandy presented a great overview of general design ideas and concepts as well as providing specific ideas on your own personal living space, which I found very helpful. She also provided an expansive list of other resources for getting help with design ideas/stores for unique items. The class was definitely worth my time and money, and I would certainly recommend it to anyone who struggles with interior design (like me) or who just wants a different perspective on design ideas.

    Great experience. Helpful tips. Insider secrets revealed! Kandy has a true talent. She can look at a space and know exactly what you need to do to fix it. She had excellent ideas for everyone's problem rooms. She's a wealth of knowledge. My only regret was that she didn't offer a series of classes or a 4-week course. I'd love to come back and learn more!

    A really nice introduction to some theories around interior design that seemed approachable and fun to experiment with. I also liked that we got to look over photos of our own homes to get some ideas for those spaces. The group had a nice dynamic and I think was able to share a lot of thoughtful and good ideas!

    I came in with so many questions as to make my rental apartment more appealing and hone-y. The teacher was incredibly friendly and non-judgemental. Make sure to take pictures of your space! You can ask her questions and I found that to be helpful to apply the concepts we learned about.

    This class was so helpful. Before this class, I felt design challenged, but the teacher was really approachable and gave awesome, concrete suggestions.

    I have enjoyed the class with Kandy. It's a very basic introduction to interior design but some of the tips/concepts are useful to know. At the end of the course, Kandy looks through the spaces that were submitted by attendees and gives them some suggestions. I found this portion to be pretty helpful! After the course, she also sends a list of resources that can help you to further your education/knowledge of interior design. Overall, a very good experience but I would recommend this course only for beginners.
