Our Founder

Welcome to Jenniez School of African Interior Design (JSAID). The first and only approved Interior decorating educator in Africa by CID International.

I am the Founder of Jenniez School of African Interior Design and Creative Director Jenniez Designs.

JSAID was founded to bridge the gap in Interior Decorating education in Nigeria and Africa.

 

There is a general misconception about Interior Design and Interior Decoration.To put it as simply as possible; the interior decorator adds things to a space to improve the look, while the interior designer alters the space itself and incorporates a comprehensive vision into the room that includes more than just accessories and fabrics.

I observed that the few interior design schools in Nigeria who offered interior design certifications, were actually offering interior decoration courses as Interior Design courses. Interior Design can’t be taught in a few weeks or months, for a proper interior design course one needs at least four years to study. It is like saying you want to study Architecture in 3 months, which is impossible.

I realized we didn’t have the formal education available for a career in interior design but we had people who had a passion for interiors. I decided to create a niche for us in the industry by providing Certification in Interior Decorating which is also as profitable as a career in Interior Design but not misleading, so as to cater to the needs of Interior Decorators.

Our curriculum is in line with the Certified Interior Decorators International, Florida, which is the only approved body in the world, who is allowed to certify interior decorators worldwide.

JSAID is proud to be an approved educator of the CID International.

Our graduates will be awarded two certificates from both JSAID and CID, which is recognised internationally. The title CID can be attached to their names as members and our graduates also have access to trade discounts internationally.

Join us as you design your future and be part of the first and only approved Interior Decorating School in Africa.
