Our Training & Support Systems
For those with excellent skills and enough confidence, we have an attractive alternative to the interior design degree. The total investment for our franchise, including comprehensive start-up and ongoing training, marketing programs and assistance, and an extensive supplier network, is much less expensive than a typical two or four year interior design degree – and much quicker, as well.
We have been helping creative individuals become professional entrepreneurs in the world of interior decorating and residential design since 1969. Our practical training programs not only instruct on design principals and elements, but also on merchandising, marketing and sales, and best business practices to answer important questions like these:
- How do I attract and manage a client base?
- How do I learn enough about the many home furnishings products to be effective?
- How do I get access to those products for my clients at a price that allows me to resell profitably ?
- How do I actually accomplish my decorating and design project in the field, the real world, and get compensated accordingly?
