I’m nearing the end of my course at the International School of Colour and Design, which means my rug design project is almost due. In a nutshell, students in the course submit a rug design and the winner of the assignment actually gets their design produce by Designer Rugs. It’s a pretty exciting opportunity for us to be connected with an Aussie icon like this! Naturally, I had to hit the Edgecliff showroom for design inspiration and was lucky enough to speak to managing director Yosi Tal while I was there (score!).

One of the most exciting things about my design course at the International School of Colour and Design is knowing that I get to design a rug toward the end of the year. The winning design from the course, would you believe, actually gets their rug produced by Designer Rugs! I sat down with the recent winner from the Cert IV course, Wahroonga mum Tina Murray-Walker, to discuss the design process, her time in the course and what doors have opened for her since winning.
