The great thing about African design is that you don’t have to sacrifice vibrancy for luxury; the two go hand in hand.

In this course, she teaches you how to bring bold, African-inspired patterns and colours into your interior spaces. Discover how to decorate a space from scratch and give your home a cultural flair full of pattern and texture.

Then learn about basic pattern theory and how to incorporate patterns into your interiors without them being overwhelming. Eva shares her advice for where to find accessories that are ethically sourced before explaining how to use mood boards as a tool to visualize your ideas. Get a run-through of how to plan your room design, taking into account budget, space, time frame, and more.

Learn to add colour, pattern, and cultural influences to your home. Eva takes you through how to put what you’ve learned into practice in your hallway, bathroom, office, bedroom, living room, and outdoor space.

Discover how to maintain your home to keep it looking stylish and fresh. Then, learn to make small, seasonal adjustments to your interior, from moving furniture to adding different textures.
