What are students saying??



Weekly classes and coaching, every Thursday from 2-3pm PST, where we talk about all the components of a beautiful, peaceful home and heart.

Live Meetings via Zoom for the ability to ask Sarah and other like minded decorators questions on the spot! If you miss the classes, no worries! You can always watch the replays that are emailed out.

Tutorials on how to choose paint colors, upholster furniture, organize your home, create mood boards and more!

An inside look into your own home with once a month virtual design consultation opportunities. Sarah, a professional interior designer, will help you with any decorating struggles you are having and send out product recommendations and tutorials after the consultations.

"I can't thank you enough for what you do, how you encourage and motivate and the results I am seeing.

You mentioned FlyLady in class today. I found her when I had my second child and life just became overwhelming. I learned to manage the day to day but never could "catch up" with the stuff (papers, books, miscellaneous) from before children when we got married and until last week the boxes remained (mostly unopened for 16 years). After purging and organizing the "stuff" I managed to free a WHOLE ROOM from the many totes of paper!!!

I had a huge life wake up call several years ago and remaking my home became a priority. I don't mean in the sense of decor but with the relationships within my home. . .

I bought some graph paper and my oldest two (10, 12) measured all our current furniture and all the spaces within our home. I'm not 100% settled but we're coming much closer to mapping out how to best utilize space, furniture, is helping us plan what renovations would be beneficial, and what size scale furniture works best in some of our odd shaped rooms.

We're looking forward to what's next and getting more excited about our homes potential. . .

On a side note, I'm going to be painting my first piece of furniture this week. Nervous!!! I'll be sure to post progress pictures on Facebook group.

Thank you again. . . I'm just so grateful for your help, wisdom and perspective."

"Today was so awesome! I enjoyed it so much. I was struggling on a large project that I was working on for a client. I then realized why I was "stuck". I always pray over my client's homes and I realized I had not prayed over this senior living community that I was redecorating and the given the project to God for HIS creative glory. Once I did that the creativity flowed!"

- Anne Murphy, Founding Member of Behind the Scenes

Sarah Phillipps
Sarah Phillipps

Some of Sarah's earliest memories involving decorating her childhood bedroom, every square inch was considered and when she could not find what she needed, she would simply DIY it, not realizing that this wasn't normal! This continued on into high school and people began asking her to design their events and homes. It was her husband who suggested she switch her degree to what she loved most and after graduating with a degree in interior design from the London Guildhall University, she settled into a life of homeschooling her children and taking design clients on the side.

After a few years in the industry, though, it became clear that it was the DIY crowd she wanted to work with most! She missed the resourcefulness and creativity of achieving the professional look for a fraction of the cost.

Today, she teaches interior design online at She Holds Dearly and in her Behind the Scenes coaching group full time. She manages a small farm, all the while, renovating a 100+ year old farmhouse with her husband and four kids. She is passionate about teaching women the skills they need to make their homes beautiful and easy to maintain!

What if you could learn how to . . .

  • Design your own mood boards to narrow down your design ideas
  • Understand paint colors and undertones
  • Choose furniture, fabrics, accessories and lighting
  • Thrift and DIY most decor to save 90% off retail
  • Have access to a professional interior designer and a group of talented women for encouragement and support
  • Face the unspoken challenges in the design community- decluttering, heart issues and maintaining a beautiful space

Behind the Scenes might be just what you are needing!
