What is Redesign?
Redesign is using what a client already owns to change their space. To do this, you’ll use placement and creative applications that we will teach you!

What is One-Day Decorating?
One-Day Decorating is the art of creating a beautiful room by combining what the client already owns with color, shopping, and creativity. Although this is certainly decorating, the key difference is the surprise element for the client, as you don’t have them pre-approve every purchase like you would with full-service decorating.

If you love creating beautiful rooms then you’ll understand how to begin the decorating process by focusing on what the client already owns, blended with the art of placement. Now, with our help, you’ll be able to add a true understanding of decorating, color, and placement to help make you money while also making your clients happy!

When you sign up for a course through The-DSA, your tuition will include a student kit that has a variety of support including learning aids, a professional color deck, affiliate discounts, hands-on exercises in real homes, portfolio testimonials, portfolio before-and-after photos, and transportation to clients’ homes.
