Students are introduced to design styles and themes, aspects of lightening and the use of colour. One room in the home should be identified as the focus for practical work. Students are encourage to develop their own creative brief, considering the function and use of the room, prepare a room survey and draw a basic plan. Furniture layouts and lighting plans can be developed as an option.
