Customer Reviews


This course sparked an even stronger desire in me to learn beyond what I learned here, which is the highest compliment I can extend. Sarah's lessons were so informative and never boring. She also gives you strong support and positive encouragement along the way in the discussion area. I recommend this course highly to anyone interested in interior decorating and design, either just for their own personal use or as a career. And I envy you lucky people who will be having Sarah as their instructor in the future! I'll miss her and this course!

This course was a little bit of work and a lot of fun. I truly enjoyed Sarah's style; her enthusiasm for her profession comes through in the material, assignments, quizzes & discussions. Although I have a lot of experience in interior design (many, many, remodeled homes), I have no formal training. The course fairly devotes time to both residential & commercial and I found myself learning new things and having existing skills reinforced. Great experience and many thanks!

I totally enjoyed taking this fun class. I will be able to use it in the future when I move into my new home. Sarah was an excellent teacher and I would strongly suggest to anyone to take this class because of her wealth of knowledge in design and her teaching skills.

This class increased my interior design knowledge in important areas of design, architectural language, color, lighting, materials, universal design and more. This is knowledge I can use immediately in my own home. Besides the excellent lesson content, the instructor's discussion area conversation was personable and information-packed too. Thank you so much!

Sarah, I just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful course! You have done such a great job with the information and sharing your experiences. Also, thank you for sharing your resources. I have gained a lot of knowledge and have an idea of how and where to start looking for style, inspiration and furnishings. One of the deciding factors to take this particular course was your reviews from previous students. They were right about how lucky anyone would be to have you as an instructor and that they would miss you after the class was over. They are right! I really appreciate your detailed answers to the questions asked in this class. Your answers have been so helpful! I also have a new appreciation for other styles as the minimal luxe is now very appealing to me!

Sarah did a wonderful job teaching this class. I really appreciated the way she was very friendly in her answers to students' questions. Also, the thoughtful and detailed explanations to these questions were extremely helpful. Thanks for everything. One of the best classes I have taken through ed2go!"
