Description

For courses in Interior Design.

 

Until now, interior design education has focused on overly complex software programs such as AutoCAD—the equivalent of hitting a fly with a sledgehammer. This breakthrough text helps create and present designs using free, easy-to-learn software: Google SketchUp. Created specifically for college-level courses in Interior Design, the text covers all of the ways SketchUp can be used for interior design and decorating. Step-by-step, illustrated projects walk readers through the design process, including modeling an empty room, finding or creating furniture and accessories, using color and materials, and presenting designs to clients.
