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 and that's where Home Study comes in. You will receive the very same manual and hands-on projects as you would in class. Plus, a review of your final project and ongoing support and mentoring!

That's over 350 pages in CDP manual alone, plus an additional 400 + pages in the two companion manuals. And all include forms you may adapt for your own business. And invaluable resource all on its own.

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

  • ​Each CDP Home Study program includes an array of forms. Please email us for a complete list.

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. Please see class descriptions here.
