THE SECRETS OF
NORDIC DESIGN - SHARED
We simply love Nordic design. The subdued colors and natural clean materials, the simplistic and understated elegance. It’s where form meets function. It’s sleek yet cozy and inviting. It’s Scandinavian. We can’t get enough of it, and we want to share it with you. And the world.

Skills that match your ambitions
Our courses are aimed at those who want to create creative professional milieus and harmonic private homes to die for. Our methodology encompasses a strong focus on hands-on training and feedback so that your portfolio will be too good to pass on once you graduate.
It all started in 2005 when our founder Anna decided to take the leap and turn her dream into reality. She quit her job in banking and started an interior design company to get an outlet for her creativity and passion. The freedom of being her own CEO came with the package. Since then the small decorating operation has grown into an international education platform that focuses on Nordic interior design and decorating.
Today, we are the largest educator in Scandinavia, and certifies Interior Decorators all over the world.
