Interior Designer, Jorge Cañete, has announced dates for his Spring 2010 Program of Interior Design Workshops.

The workshops are suitable for anyone interested in interior design and wishing to get more involved in this field by acquiring what Jorge describes as "a comprehensive methodology and basic techniques". Each seminar is created and taught by Jorge, who is a graduate of the London Metropolitan University and member of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA). His work includes corporate projects for international brands and residential projects.

How to give sense to an interior design project? How to define a unique concept? How to combine fabrics, colors and furniture for a harmonious interior?
