WHAT IS THE SECRET DESIGN PARTY?
The Secret Design Party is an exclusive interior design masterclass that will equip you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to create your own stylish, organised and happy space.
Brought to you by professional interior designer, Gwendoline Alderton, this masterclass was created especially for you because 90% of women have said they’re unhappy with their homes even after you’ve redecorated.
The most common disappointments include:
1) you’ve gone over budget and made expensive mistakes
2) you feel overwhelmed by colour so you play it safe and your room is bland
3) there’s too much choice and you’ve bought the wrong things
4) your design doesn’t go to plan so it’s not the room of your dreams
5) you don’t know where to start so your room is left looking dated or unfinished
The Secret Design Party will share designer insights that give you the expertise needed to create your perfect space that’s within budget and always looks amazing. This interior design masterclass will show you a different approach of rapid design. You’ll be amazed how simple and effective it can be to create your dream space.

The Secret Design Party was educational, informative and it’s going to help me to really enjoy the whole experience. I’ve gone from dreading it, to being absolutely delighted and excited about the design.”
