Through training and education, Design U attempts to bring out the inner designer hidden deep inside those that show no signs of design life.
Each episode takes our Design U student and gets them into shape by enrolling them in “Interior Design 101,” a crash course in design, taught by the best designers in the business. Our neophyte designer learns about colours, textures, spatial division, scale, symmetry, and even learns design terms like Bauhaus, Baroque, Art Nouveau and Art Deco. After a one day crash course at Design U, the real test begins: they must put their newly-acquired design savvy to use in redesigning a space in their home. Along with our host, resident handyman, and various assistants, our student has two days and $3,000 to complete the project. At the end of 48 hours, our Interior Design Instructor hands out the final grade. Will our student pass or fail?
