Certified Decorating Professional ® Home Study Program

Our signature program is based on tried and true design principles that you may apply to several specialized fields of design, and include interior redesign, home staging, and color, in addition to conventional interior decorating services. 

Sometimes, attending a class in person is not an option. You will receive the very same manual and hands-on projects as you would in class. Plus, a review of your final project. That's over 350 pages in CDP manual alone (!) plus an additional 
400 plus pages in the two companion manuals. And all include forms you may adapt for your own business!

You will learn:

•  The building blocks of design and importance of design principles
•  Design styles overview 
•  Space planning fundamentals
•  The key components of pattern, texture, and form
•  Color theory, practice, and psychology – consulting practices, tips, and guidelines
•  How to pull materials and finishes together
•  The art of accessorizing—accessorize everything from tabletops to bookcases and everything in between
•  How to conduct a design consultation, work with clients, and much more

You will also receive continued support through our Virtual Classroom, which features many of the projects found in the studio.

This program can be combined with our Redesign-Staging and/or our Business by Design study manual for a complete educational experience.
