Working in the world of Interior Design is one of the most rewarding careers.
HDS is a strong believer that it’s not about what you are going to learn, but rather who you are going to become. Having a passion and intuition for design is a great place to start, but building upon that with a greater design awareness and skills to execute your ideas, developing your own individual style is what we believe will give you an edge in the Interior Design World.
Focusing on residential interiors, it’s not about just creating the latest magazine ‘look’, but seeking new ideas, overcoming obstacles and constraints, solving problems and mastering the skills needed to flourish in this industry.
