Thank you The Interior Design Institute for allowing my imagination to roam free and for letting me express myself in an area where I know that even though I lacked several skills at first, I knew I was bound to improve given your expertise and trustworthy advice. I would absolutely recommend this course to anyone interested in this area of Design.
