5* Testimonials

  • Vandana, Singapore

    I took two of Lucy’s courses based in Singapore - How to become an Interior Stylist and the other "How to Style your Home” was a natural progression as I had enjoyed the first course so much. I loved the ease of doing them, with much attention to detail packed in these courses explained in Lucy’s irrepressibly friendly, warm and cheerful nature. She breaks things down simply, providing help, resources guides and to make it more interesting and fun. It was very fulfilling and fantastic to do her courses and be connected with a universe of so much creativity, beauty and ideas.

  • Amy Reich, US and France

    Such a brilliant, practical, and unique course! Lucy describes the ins and outs of the interior stying industry and provides real world case studies. The assignments are easy to manage and are fun! Lucy is fabulous and personable. From the course, I have gained new skills and am more confident with styling work. I appreciate that Lucy created a related Facebook group that’s supportive and provides a true community. I recommend this course to anyone interested in the interior styling world.

  • Steph Morris, UK

    Through this course, Lucy provides you with all the foundations to pursue a career in interior styling / to improve your approach and execution of styling in any aspect. From expert opinions and insights, to first hand guidance and practical application, to giving you something tangible to take forward, by way of a portfolio - I am so pleased I took this course! Beyond that, the cherry on top is the community I am now a part of as a result of meeting other budding stylists and Lucy herself!

This course naturally follows on from Part One

If you wanted to do both my courses I would start with 'Learn to Become a Professional Interior Stylist' which covers mood boarding and is a great place to start!

I will show you how to create a mock client

And then how to build a shoot to create images for your 'client'. This will be the perfect addition to your new portfolio!
