For years, I witnessed the frustration of women who wanted to create home interiors that reflected their personality, but were struggling to find a way to do that on their own. Reality is, many women just like you are looking for a guide to help them create beautiful home spaces but perhaps haven’t the means nor the desire to hire an interior designer for the whole project. You may struggle to take the ideas and inspiration you see and transfer those ideas into your own home. You may simply want to learn how to design and decorate yourself, on your terms, in your time and without fear of someone taking over or blowing the budget. The Design School is here for you if you have dreamed of creating a more warm, relaxed and inviting home that is a true reflection of who you are. You don’t have to be an aspiring designer who wants to make a career of it. Instead, the courses and services are here for the everyday women who gets a little stuck in the design process. Finally, you’ll be able to take all those Pinterest and Instagram pictures that you are pouring over and transfer the ideas to your own place.

WALDA was incorporated in 2005 by a group of enthusiastic students under the guidance of lecturer Miriam Moore. The aim was to start a landscape design association that would not only support qualified designers but also maintain and encourage a high standard and professionalism in the industry. This would benefit both our members and also the general garden loving public. WALDA is dedicated to advancing the profession of landscape design in Western Australia. We encourage our members to adhere to a code of professional standards, to actively participate in continuing education through professional development days and to be current with the developments and trends within the industry. The association requires its members to pass a rigorous peer review assessment which offers consumers access to qualified and experienced designers. Today, WALDA is recognised as the peak industry body for landscape designers in Western Australia. We are a rapidly growing group of professionals trained to creatively respond to our unique Western Australian climate and conditions. Choosing a WALDA member is your assurance that you have engaged a landscape professional with a sound understanding of design principles, construction and a comprehensive knowledge of soils and plants.
