If you want to become a truly perceptive and successful home decorator, first take some classes on interior design. Understanding the basics of color theory will be very helpful so explore this area as well. You also have to know which direction trends are heading and keep up-to-date on what is new in various subcultures. Lastly, use your craft for both personal satisfaction and financial profit.
To become an interior designer you need to go to college or trade school followed by internships with designers or architects for about 4 years total.

I would recommend that you enroll in a design school with a focus on interior design. Interior Design is my preferred approach because of the creativity and space involved, but there are also commercial real estate courses or even garden design courses you could study. If so, your best option is to apply for an interior-design course at a university or college. If this isn't achievable due to work commitments, you might have better luck submitting a portfolio of designs you have created for consideration by interior designers in the private sector. The other way (less desirable) that somebody can enter the field is through self-study programs from publishers and designers such as Rooms Magazine Destination Architectural Digest.

The easiest way is to complete an Interior Design degree from a reputable College or University. From there, it's possible to work in another field that could lead into becoming a home decorator at some point in the future. However, keep in mind that most interior designers have postgraduate degrees so this might not be your best option if you want to get into the trade quickly and easily. If you would prefer working for yourself, then learning about home decorations through self-education can also help give you an edge by allowing you start designing and decorating earlier on without waiting for more schooling.
