Become an Interior Decorator

Imagine having a rewarding, high-paying job that lets you use your creativity to make homes and businesses more beautiful and comfortable. Welcome to the world of interior decorating!

There are few jobs that offer so many benefits. As an interior decorator you will have the satisfaction of making your vision a reality. You will meet interesting people, and because many people who hire interior decorators are wealthy, you will likely spend time in many beautiful homes.

If you start your own interior decorating business you will enjoy the freedom and financial rewards of being your own boss. And perhaps most importantly your interior decorating "work" will be fun, interesting, and personally rewarding.

Interior decorators are more in demand than ever before. Most are hired to decorate homes (including yachts!), but they are also hired to decorate interiors of a wide variety of businesses. Decorators may decorate the entire interior of a building or a single room such as the living room, kitchen, bathroom, or bedroom.

Here are just a few of the types of businesses that need interior decorators. Which ones can you imagine yourself doing interior decorating for?
