I decided to start an adventure after to read an article at, that I share below. I always wondered how the TV shows of Home Design created those amazing images of the spaces. Those images allow you to see the Designer ideas as a preview. As part of my Interior Decorating program at Humber, I had the opportunity to use AutoCAD, Sketch-up and its extensions (Maxwell and Visualizer), HomebyMe and OlioBoard to create 3D models of interiors. Interior-design-software-on-a-tablet

Now I know it requires several hours of creative work and patience to apply your interior design knowledge. That is why, I will use every one of the 18 softwares mentioned in the article. One per a month starting on May. It will take me more than a year, but I will be able to tell the pros and cons that I experience. I have used Lowe´s and IKEA ones as well, but not in deep. So I promise to look for some others to complete the list of 18.

Follow me in this adventure of self-education!
