We all want our homes to be our sanctuary, somewhere that feels just right for us. But finding the time, space and inspiration to make this happen can be a challenge. And that’s where The LGI Design School workshops come in. This is your opportunity to surround yourself with creativity, to be inspired and learn professional tools to design your space without the worry. Time to step away from everything that distracts you and to focus on you and your home.

We hold our workshops in a stunning barn venue nestled in a beautiful part of the cotswolds. filled with natural light, the barn provides the perfect backdrop for the day

step one - floorplans

Spacial planning is SO important and often overlooked by people designing their own homes. We cover key questions that you need to ask yourself as well as something a little bit technical that is easily mastered and will be a total gamechanger for your space planning! By the end of the session you'll have mastered a scale ruler and be able to confidently draw a floorplan to scale.

The amount of time that people spend agonising over paint colours can be painful! We cover the science behind colour before talking you through how you can easily narrow down which colours are going to suit your space best, and how to mix colours to create a beautiful, effortless flow throughout your home.

STEP

Learn why we don’t design a room without a mood board and how we go about it. Mood boards are different to 'sample' boards - they are used to inspire colours, textures and atmosphere. We use them as the foundation for all of our design work and we think you should too! In this session we go through our tips for mood boards and then its time to get crafting your own!

"LAUREN HAD A WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE THAT I WANTED TO SOAK UP LIKE A SPONGE!'

The day covered various things from drawing rooms to scale all the way through to styling a space. It felt so good to be away from the children and with like minded people who also thought that talking about the difference between Farrow and Ball Cornforth White and Off White was a fab way to spend a Saturday.

"I was in heaven, Cotswold stone, interiors & like minded people, just perfect!"

The biggest thing I took away from the day was how to do a floor plan and do it to scale!! The thought of this horrified me and I honestly thought this was seriously beyond me, however with the nifty gift from Lauren in our goodie bags, a scale ruler, I was well away! I managed to draw the room with the windows, doors & stairs so I could work out where to place furniture and you can really see what balances in the room.

"Lauren’s workshop will make you smile for a few days"

A fantastic day out for anyone interested in Interiors or anyone with a daunting Interiors project ahead of them, or just because you’d like a bit of 'you' time.

REVIEW

"It was a fascinating day. It has made a huge difference to my space"

It was an inspiring day and I enjoyed learning about the interior design process from someone in the trade. I also loved chatting with the other attendees about their interior plans. There was such a great mix of people and it was fascinating to exchange stories over lunch as the rain fell on the surrounding Cotswold hills.
