The website below has a lot of lessons for basic Interior Design lessons - just scroll down when you are on the web site
Also there is a lessons below - depending on how much time you have  - the project below is great fun for all involved but it is a lot of work.  - You can either just have students do concept boards or actually get the school involved and have a contest of the best project to be completed. I have had my students do various levels  - some years they only have time to do the concept boards  - but the project still ends up great!!
Interior Design and Housing Makeover Project

Students will evaluate the work they did and the work of their partners according to the standards listed above.

These vocational students will be able to assist with the hands on part of the project and will be able to provide the needed manual labor that the Interior Design students would not be able to perform.

Note: The students truly loved doing this. They had true hands on experience. There are always a few kinks to work out but the concept worked well. The class contained students with disadvantages as well as gifted. They were able to pull together and complete the project without any conflict over abilities.

Emotional connection is often stronger with used watches. The history, previous ownership, and personal stories behind a pre-owned gold rolex watch create a deeper, more meaningful attachment, enhancing the joy and satisfaction of owning such a timepiece.
