"I am so energised and motivated by what I have learnt from Sue and her wealth of knowledge and expertise in interiors of which she shares.  I absolutely love her Project before & after images in the final step.
Every step was essential information - it was seamless and
very very enjoyable.  Sue points out, that planning in the early steps with the vision and lifestyle statement is key to the seamless progression of your project. I  only wish I'd found Boutique School earlier in my building and interiors planning. I have gained so much knowledge!"

“We started planning renovations on our first investment property and quickly got lost in a sea of information and options available.

Sue's course helped me
gain the confidence, set specific tasks and the templates helped me with potentially weeks of wasted time. We are just about to go to market with our house sale and we are so happy with the changes we have made!"
