Course overview

Art has the power to truly transform an interior space, but how? What pieces do you select and why? In this special Art Week course, we’ll teach you how to leverage art in interior design.

Morning lecture at Insight School (10am- 1pm) will be followed by a tour at Soho House by art consultant Fiona Ho in the afternoon (2 -3pm) to look at their art collection and its curation.

Here's an overview of what will be covered:

  • Learn the principles of art in interiors – how to frame, mount, hang, install, and light art in residential and commercial spaces
  • Discuss at what point in your design process you should select your art
  • Understand how you can combine art with your colour scheme and furniture selection to create beautiful interiors
  • Private tour by art advisor Fiona Ho, who will guide you through important works by influential artists from Asia and abroad.
  • As part of the tour you will be introduced into the thinking behind the curation of Soho House’s art collection, the way it is combined, hanged, light and interacts with the design of the space.

The course is taught by very professional and passionate people. I enjoyed the passion of the teacher and the art consultant! It was really interesting to learn about their background.The tour of fair - meeting with artists etc was very worthwhile. The information is presented clearly and practically. It's also nice to be in a class where the students are also as interested and excited about the same material.
