Interior Design at The Creative School is among the world's leading institutions for interior design. And we are moving forward! 

Why choose Interior Design?

We make.

Interior Design at The Creative School has great facilities, including the Design Fabrication Lab and our own Interior Design Workshop, and incredible inspiring faculty to guide your development as makers.

We Challenge.

In Interior Design students and faculty work together on the big problems of the world through collaboration with other disciplines in The Creative School or by travel, including to a yearly studio in Cortona, Italy.

We Lead.

Interior Design at The Creative School is a leader in the interior design community, which means great connections for our students and graduates, terrific internship possibilities, career guidance and mentorships.

We Care.

In Interior Design we care for each other. And we care for the world: the human world, where we strive for equity and inclusion; and the physical world, that we want to make sustainable for coming generations.

Interior Design is the future. Come make it with us.

The School of Interior Design honours and celebrates Black History Month and the resilience, strength and contributions of Black Canadians who have shaped Canadian culture and life. Black thinkers, creatives, artists and designers have had a profound impact on how we live and experience the world around us. We acknowledge that these achievements were also acts of resistance, as the very foundations of Canada have been built on racism, including the decimation of Indigenous peoples, languages and cultures, the enslavement of African peoples, the internment of Japanese people, head taxes levied against Chinese people, and the list goes on.

What we must commit to is unlearning the very things that we have been taught to take as truths. This means learning about colonialism, Canadian history and the origins of race. It means digging deeper into our own belief systems, challenging the messages propagated through the media, and believing the experiences and stories of Black people. Listening and learning is key to our own growth and undoing our biases.

Over the past few years, we in the School of Interior Design have been working to build a community keen on making meaningful changes that speak to the core values of diversity, growth and innovation. This has meant a lot of listening, a lot of introspection, and a lot of challenging our own selves. This year, we will mark Black History Month in a number of ways, including by partnering with JennAir to inaugurate the JennAir Disrupting Design Series, which looks to question - and purposefully disrupt - the biases that have been endemic in interior design.

Please join us on:

Thursday, March 16, 2023, at 6:00 p.m.

And this is just the beginning. In the coming months and years we will continue to work hard to make the world of interior design more equitable, more just and more inclusive. You have my word on it.
