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.
STUDIO TRAINING OPTION: If you still want to learn from actual hands-on training in the studio, we offer Home Study students the option of attending a half-day session. Please ask us about the details.
