Rukundo Design and Décor is an Interior Design company owned by a mother and daughter team, Florence and Christine. "RUKUNDO" means love in one of Uganda’s main languages (Runyankole). It is a pleasure for us to share not just a wonderful family bond but the love and creative energy of a shared passion for interior design and décor.
Rukundo Design and Décor runs specialty camps that invite people who are interested in learning and applying simple principles of interior design into their everyday living at home or wherever they may be.
Our target groups for design camps include both adults and children interested in design.
Young Designers at Kids' Holiday Camp
Rukundo Design and Decor was excited to host our Kids’ holiday design camp from 10 – 13 July 2017. We hosted it at our showroom and wellness centre in Naalya, Kampala. Here is a snapshot of the fun and learning that went down at the camp.
We opened our doors to aspiring interior designers and art lovers from ages 5 – 17 years. The kids made new friends and over course of the 4 days we became like family. Lots of fun activities kept them busy. We learnt how to design our dream room. Football, under the sea, space, flowers and superheroes were some of the room themes the children came up with.
This day was all about color and how it’s used in interior design. Did you know putting a baby in a yellow room will make the baby cry? While yellow can also make you hungry? The kids also used their favourite colors to make crazy craft pieces that they took home to decorate their rooms and as gifts.
Beads, beads and more beads. The camp explored how beads are used in interior design. The children went on an exciting web quest and made fantastic bead craft of their own.
The final day of the camp ended on a high note. We had a motivational speaker take the children through life lessons of making the right choices, acquiring knowledge and public speaking. Even the little ones made fabulous speeches about their passions. By the end of the day, no one wanted to say goodbye. We were emotional as the children accepted their certificates. But the smiles and excitement warmed out hearts as the young aspiring designers set out to share their new skills.
Watch out for our next kid’s holiday design camp.
