    The first step in becoming a successful home decorator is to find a place that offers classes. The best way to find out whether there are any classes near you is to go online and search for "home decorating course **name of your area**", replacing the **name of area** with your town or city.
    Once you've found some courses, check their schedule and prices; it should be relatively easy to figure out which matches what you're looking for. If one doesn't jump out at you, then research the other options until something clicks with you, such as class times or pricing (or both). After all, this is an investment, so it's important that it fits into your lifestyle!

    1. Design and furnish room according to clients' needs and preferences.
    2. Seek approval of final design to increase the chances of healthy workflow with clients
    3. Identify high saturation areas in a house where space may be less restricted, such as an open plan kitchen/living room, or a living area that has potential for creating more reconfigurable spaces within the existing footprint. The low-density radius of these areas help greatly when throwing out decorating ideas by observation alone while sitting on the couch or standing in what soon may become a walkway from one end to another part of a living space so long as there are no stairs... (is this sentence too long?)

    If you're an entrepreneur (i.e., looking to earn the title, not just learn about it), then you should consider how your skills may contribute to home design projects and find businesses that would be appropriate partners for those skills. Consultants often have specialist expertise in areas such as planning, architecture, plumbing, building codes compliance or even furniture selection that can stretch considerably beyond simple design principles. Your skill set could help large homebuilders find talented consultants more quickly and at a lower cost than if they were combing through newspapers in search of available contractors with the appropriate certifications.

    A home decorator is someone who has a passion for designing and arranging furnishings and objects in homes. The job includes but goes beyond merely redesigning spaces or making them more stylish, as a first step many have to analyse the needs of their clients, consider budgets and timelines in order to create functional floor plans before finally choosing colors, textures, decor items such as curtains or pillows.

    - find a company or person that does this work well and intern with them
    - learn to sew, and make items yourself
    - design your home in 3D software before you build it, so you know where everything should go. (ie, designing for how the hexagonal logs will naturally stack when they're stacked)
    - study architecture or engineering at a university to better understand construction methods & techniques
    - get training in Feng Shui principles; feng shui is really more about placement of furniture than colors. But I'm not qualified to comment on what someone can do if they don't have the ability to do all of those things. Or any one of them except maybe sewing skills...

    1) Decide what your home decorating style is. Pick one and stick with it, do not try to incorporate more than one into the same space. A few styles are loft (modern/industrial feel), masculine (masculine/rustic look), cozy chic, contemporary country cottage.
    2) Understand how flow works in a room and where you need an entrance or exit so that people can traverse from the dining room to say the living room easily if needed.
