The next Style Lab begins November 14th! 


Live seminars and Q&A sessions with Barbara throughout the course.


Step-by-step how tos, comprehensive e-guides, tips, tricks and the the secret sauce behind great style.  


Own the 'why' behind the smallest details in your creations so you can shop, style and share with confidence.

Creating Style Lab has been a real dream of mine and I am so excited to be able to take you inside the inner workings of Make Room and empower and inspire you to take on your own styling journey.  It’s an engaging resource jam packed with industry knowledge, years of experiences from me and my team and easy to use resources, tools and tips. We reveal our step by step processes, top secrets, dispel misconceptions and have a lot of fun along the way.


In short, it’s the resource I wish I had eleven years ago when I started my design journey.


So if you’re looking to breath life into an old space or style a new home from the ground up, want to stretch your budget by taking control of your project, are a complete amateur or self-proclaimed design buff, this is for you.


After all, my motto is #behappyathome.


So, what's included?

The course spans over five weekly modules, where you’ll receive downloadable PDF’s, worksheets and bonus content (which you can keep forever and ever so that you can always come back it in your own time because, we get it, life gets in the way sometimes), weekly live seminars (with a few guest speakers thrown in) and video content from Barbara introducing the weeks topic and sharing her own personal insight into the content we’ll be covering.

Keep scrolling to find out more. 

We were lucky to be recommended Make Room! Barbara and team came up with suggestions, pictures and concrete designs. Most importantly, Make Room took away almost all the stress that comes with any renovation, and delivered a well designed, functional and beautiful place where we felt at home right away.

Every visitor who came to our house will definitely tell us that they love our house and how it was so nicely done up. I'm secretly loving all the compliments from them. I will not hesitate to recommend my friends and family about Make room. Thank you so so much for making my house looking so great and fabulous!

We are going to find out what makes you tick, what you're drawn to, how to translate your personality into a style, how to create a mood board and basically, how to get your vision in your brain onto paper so that we have an aim to work towards.

Module Two

True Colours

This is called the Style Lab for a reason - there is truly a little bit of science behind the magic, and we’re going to jump right into colour theory for our first science lesson! Colour is undoubtedly one of the most important elements of design so before we can proceed, we’ll make sure you spend some time with the colour wheel, learning about what colours work - or don’t work - together. Whether you’re setting a colour palette for an entire house or a tiny little nook, it is going to be what holds everything together.


Module Five

Road Map

We end the course on the best bit. I’m sharing with you all my secrets, top tips, tricks and even past mistakes to make sure you confidently and successfully transform any space, building off the foundational information of the previous four modules. I’ll teach you everything you need to know about the art behind interior styling - textures, materiality, placement, scale, and proportions.


Module Four

Cherry on Top

Accessories might be my achilles heel. They are truly the cherry on top, the icing on the cake, the secret ingredient to making any space sing. You might be tempted to spend all of your time and money focusing on the big ticket items like your sofa, bed and dining table, but I will teach you how to choose the right cushion, rug, lamp, homewares and so much more.


Module Three

Matter of Space

Now that we know our style and have mastered colour theory, next up in space planning. I don’t have many rules, but I never go shopping without having a clear and thoughtful floor plan or grasp on my space planning. Without clear and considered space planning, I guarantee you will be left frustrated with how your home functions and I’m here to make sure you never second guess yourself again - and this all starts with the foundations of your space planning.
