    Anyone can learn, but the level of success will vary from person to person. What is required for it to be successful is a dedication to practice and learning endlessly. I would recommend you read up on books like THINK LIKE AN ARCHITECT AND ARCHITECT IN YOUR HEAD AT THE SAME TIME by Santiago Tovar Ferrer or DAVID IRVING | INTERIOR DESIGN BOOKS | MASSIVE IMPACT TO LEARN FROM!
    Central to any design process are the intelligent insights and observations that architects may glean from a brief walk-through of a space—a simple act which most non-architects rarely bother with at all.

    The reality is that anyone can learn interior design in a sense, but the formula for success is different for everyone.
    Interior designers need to have a keen eye, an incredible level of creativity and various design techniques on hand at all times. But they also need to be able to do great math, possess strong organizational skills and be pretty good at balancing multiple projects while still paying attention to each detail. And of course they'll need time management and multi-tasking skills -- lots of them!

    Yes, anyone who’s passionate about design can learn the basics.
    Tools are only the small part of learning interior design. Skilled designers know how to adapt to each client’s personal style and optimize their space with decor that will harmonize with what they already have. Even when using a pre-existing layout, designers should find ways to work around an available item they really don't like so it blends within the aesthetic instead of being a glaring eyesore.

    Yes. Interior design can be learned just like any other profession (in fact, continuing education credits in interior design are often available from community colleges). Be aware that your goal is not necessarily to simply create a beautiful room but rather to create a functional and well laid-out home.

    Chances are, you can. Interior design is not a "skill" that needs to be learned from birth or the result of years of schooling like some other professions. Anyone with an eye for art and creativity can learn it on their own time.
    Design for any space starts with a sketch - usually by hand, but there are various professionals who specialize in pre-made sketches available online to download too.
