I am a finish carpenter (amoung other things) and work in high end residential construction. I have always been very interested in architectural design whether it be the exterior of a house or the design of interior components such as stairways, libraries, woodwork, etc. I am being called on more and more to "design" all kinds of different things and details primarily indoors. I enjoy the challenge and freedom of doing this and know visually when something is "right". But I struggle greatly with it as I am also somewhat of a perfectionist. Most of what we do is very traditional.
My question is; is their somewhere I can go to get information (a crash course) on basic design rules such as proportion and scale? Mostly I'm talking about form and asthetics. Also, design ideas. I suppose I'm taling about "design 101". As you can probably tell I have no former training in this but am very interested.
Thank you in advance,
