Knowing that interior design is always a question of investment in both time and money, Jenkins will give members the skills they need to create stylish and functional spaces, and ensure they feel confident they're making the right decisions the first time around. With the belief that interiors should be classic, livable and timeless, he will teach members how to create mood boards, map out floor plans and shop for home furnishings—all while staying on budget. Using a living room showroom designed specifically for the class inspired by his eclectic and exuberant design philosophy, Jenkins details his approach to space planning and shares how to coordinate color, harmonize pattern, cast lead pieces and place furniture and lighting. Jenkins will also share how to shop for home furnishings and how to stay on budget for professional and DIY design projects. Whether design enthusiasts or aspiring professionals, members will leave this class motivated and inspired by Jenkins' passion and dedication to his craft and ready to build a unique space of their own.

"I believe that interior design should be accessible to everyone," Jenkins said. "We all deserve to live the very best quality of life possible, and in my class, I will show you how to invest in your surroundings so you can make your home a true haven."
