Certificate IV Interior Decoration

This practical course is designed to prepare you for the thriving interior decoration industry.

You will learn how to plan, design and decorate interior spaces. You’ll focus on the development of a project’s aesthetic, environmental, spatial and safety aspects, as well as your presentation skills. As an interior decorator, you will:

  • create well-designed and functional spaces
  • decorate residential environments
  • present your decorating ideas
  • provide advice on colour schemes, layout, lighting, soft and hard wall and floor finishes, and soft furnishing products
  • advise on interior styling, such as artwork and accessories

Focussing on 2D and 3D design and their decorative aspects, you’ll learn how to effectively communicate concepts and design ideas to your clients.
Projects are anchored around evaluating areas in soft furnishings, colour, drawing and digital presentation based on historical and contemporary styles.
With this qualification, you can pursue a career as an interior decorator in studio, manufacturing, and retail environments.
