Do you yearn to feel AT HOME in your forever house?

The home of your dreams doesn't have to be JUST a dream...

even if you feel like a total decorating failure up to now!

You finally have that forever house, – the place you want your kids to remember as a big hug, Saturday mornings, Christmas vacations, and summer BBQs.

However, instead of being a sweet embrace & a resting place, your house is anything BUT — more like a mish-mosh of mistakes, style uncertainty, Home Goods, and hand-me-downs.

Friend, you are NOT alone!


You’re afraid of making an expensive mistake you can't afford to fix.

(Or you've made a few mistakes already...)


You're overwhelmed by options & have no idea even where to start creating your vision.


You have a vision in your head for how you'd like your home to look & feel, but nothing you do seems to work! Now your confidence is caput.

About ready to give up?

I was in your shoes 10 years ago.

I had a new (to me) Forever Home that was largely a blank slate.

Outside of hiring an interior designer to decorate it for me (not in my budget!), I couldn’t find any REAL direction. How in the world would I fill this empty house in a cohesive way that would stand the test of time AND feel beautiful & unique?

What did I do?

I spent years obsessing and learning everything I could about design … even BECOMING a professional interior designer and design blogger, with 60K readers/month and a bunch of published projects!

And now I'm here to help YOU!


The Home Glow Method

A Step-by-Step System to Transform Your

Forever Home for Keeps

Overcome overwhelm & indecision and finally craft the unique Forever Home you’ve always craved!

The Home Glow Method

will teach you how to:

  • Plan all the practical stuff, step-by-step -- space planning, budgeting, sourcing, & working with tradespeople -- so it's not so intimidating.
  • Think spatially with color & pattern across your room (NO ONE teaches you this in any blog post or magazine article!).
  • Prevent costly mistake purchases and wasted time, energy, & emotional bandwidth (and potentially your marriage!).

You'll Walk Away Feeling:

  • Confident in the vision you’ve created for your Forever Home.
  • Empowered with an actionable plan to decorate your first space.
  • Qualified & excited to move forward & tackle future spaces in your home.

The Results Will GLOW!

What's Inside

The Home Glow Method

The Home Glow Method Course

(Value $1997)

My complete system teaching you how to transform your forever house into your Forever Home, full of the comfort, quality, & character you crave.

E-Book: Your "Architecturally-Inspired Mix" Formula (Value $69)

This book gives you a detailed explanation of which interior design styles complement various architectural styles … even those “builder’s-grade” homes ... and then shows you a fool-proof formula to get a great style "mix," whatever style of home you may have!

(You won't find this formula in any blog or magazine article!)

E-Book: Space Planning for Decorating SUCCESS! (Value $39)

See What Students Are Saying!

Before I enrolled in The Home Glow Method, I struggled with figuring out HOW to develop a decorating plan. It made me feel like my decision-making ability was paralyzed.

I was tired of wasting money on one-off home design/decor decisions that never seemed to make my home look any better or come together how I thought, and that I’d just end up replacing a few years later with another mistake.

Now, I feel much more knowledgeable and confident that I have the tools I need to create a home that will feel beautiful and comfortable to me. I’ve developed my color scheme, figured out where the pattern in the room needs to go, selected the curtain style and the hardware, and so much more.

If you’re on the fence about trying The Home Glow Method, trust me that you will be able to use this information over and over again as you purchase home decor into the future!

Kathryn S, Maryland

The Home Glow Method was AMAZING! Before I enrolled, I really struggled with indecisiveness. I was totally unsure where to start. I’ve always studied lots of magazines and blogs, so I would take inspiration from favorite rooms and try to recreate them in my own home, but nothing quite all worked together.

I am much more knowledgeable now and confident in my ability to design my own home! I have my starting point & can focus my style. I know where to find good upholstery and other goods now! I looked forward to each new module.

If you are serious about creating a well-designed home, I would absolutely recommend The Home Glow Method!

Saving Students Money,

Overwhelm & Frustration!

Knowing Amy through her blog, I felt confident that this course would help me to understand the foundations of good design so that I would be able to make home some decorating decisions on my own.

Now, I feel like I finally understand our home and how my style fits with it. I’m so much more comfortable & confident making stylistic & financial decisions on what to buy or not buy because I understand what will work and WHY.

For instance, we were planning to renovate our laundry room/mudroom. The design shop had prepared a cabinetry design with an estimate of about $15,000. We decided to hold off on placing the order until I finished taking this course. Well, I am so glad I did because now I know that the style – while beautiful in and of itself – would not have fit with our home! It would have been an expensive mistake, and one that I would have regretted.

Big Plus: My husband listens to my 5 – 10 minute summaries for each of the modules regarding what I have learned and how we need to change things and why…so he is learning a lot too!

Noeleen B, British Columbia, Canada

I used to decorate my home haphazardly, through instinct & hand-me-downs. I was so frustrated and scared of making a mistake. But now I feel so much more confident! I have a plan and an understanding of what goes into a plan so I can apply the same approach to other rooms!

I also love thinking about decor in terms of how our home can be a support my family’s well-being. I love the whole forever home philosophy!

If a friend of mine were considering enrolling in The Home Glow Method, I would say, “Go for it!!! It’s well worth every penny and an investment in your entire home – and your family’s comfort and well-being.

Brenda G, Ontario, Canada

But what if I need personal guidance?


Design Deep Dives

Sometimes 2 heads are better than 1.

Especially for those head-scratcher situations! Or even if you just want a little affirmation to feel confident that you're on the right track!

(All Design Deep Dives must be used within 1 year of purchase date.)

In those times, it's great to have another designer (in addition to yourself!) to bounce ideas off of, brainstorm, and give an eagle-eye view of your design.

Students of the Home Glow Method have the opportunity to schedule 1-on-1 sessions with me to review your work to date, give feedback, and get you unstuck and moving forward in your transformation process. Sessions are available as stand-alone 1-hour Zoom consultations or packages of 3 sessions for a reduced rate.

In students' own words!

More Student Raves!

I signed up for The Home Glow Method because, I thought with some help from a professional, I could get my home to look and feel the way I’ve always envisioned it. Reading Home Glow’s Saturday blog, I had confidence in Amy’s skills.

The Method has completely changed my approach to design. I’m much comfortable with mixing patterns and colors, and in making colors flow from one room to the next. The section on how to allocate my budget was eye-opening.

I feel confident that I can design my home and be happy with the result! The value I’ve gained out of the course is more than worth the cost of enrollment for sure.

Kathleen M, Minnesota

I feel so MUCH more thoughtful about home design, better prepared to make good decisions, and that I have lots of great resources to choose from, thanks to The Method’s thorough course materials.

The Home Glow Method was the best money I’ve spent in designing and decorating my home. It provided so much thoughtful content, lots of concrete resources, great worksheets, and helpful guidelines. I think it would be equally helpful to someone who was hiring a designer as it would be to someone doing it themselves.

A quick story of its real world application — I was struggling to find backsplash tile for our beach house kitchen renovation – nothing was working to add some much needed color to our white and walnut scheme. The lightbulb went on when I remembered what I learned in our very first module on creating a Forever Home Style. I revisited my work — it made choosing all the other finishes and accents so much simpler, and now the whole first floor flows together in the way we hoped! Keeping those words in mind kept me from getting sidetracked and saved us money and time, and gave us the look and feel we really wanted for our home!

Frequently Asked Questions

“I’m almost ready … I just have a few more questions.”

From my research, I’ve found 3 different kinds of design courses out there (though, to be honest, there aren’t many at all) besides The Home Glow Method:

  • Courses aimed at people who want to BECOME interior designers. We’re talking a certification of some sort. Probably not what you’re going for.
  • Inspirational/aspirational courses by million-dollar decorators that tell you to “buy what you love.” These are the courses that have the designers walking into high-end antiques stores & pulling their inspiration from some vintage French textile they picked up on a sourcing trip to Lyon. Or perhaps they find inspiration in the graffitied murals of Mexico City. You get my drift – beautiful, inspirational, amazing … but not very practical for most homeowners. ☺
  • Courses by homeowners-turned-bloggers. Much of their inspiration & sourcing is drawn from catalogs & DIY.

The Home Glow Method is different in that I teach you to transform your home like a professional designer would -- to THINK, PLAN, BUDGET & SOURCE in a cohesive way ... so you don’t need to pay a designer to get a home that looks like it was created by one!

Let me ask – how decisive are you? The whole point of the Home Style Master Decoder™ is to let my experience weed out the options that won’t work for your home, so that you can more quickly & easily choose options that do. If you trust the formula, you should be able to complete your Decoder Chart and define your style pretty quickly.

The FREE version of a Canva account is all you need to use the template created for the Home Style Master Decoder™. However, you don’t have to sign up for Canva if you don’t want to. You can easily screenshot the options presented in the mini-course and create your own Decoder chart in any software that allows you to insert text and images. And if you don’t even want to be that technical, you can print out images from the lesson PDFs and cut and paste them on a piece of paper!

Home Glow’s new Home Style Master Decoder encapsulates concepts that I teach more in-depth in Module 1, Lesson 1 of The Home Glow Method, but in a new, super practical & quickly-digested format. The Decoder is perfect for homeowners who are looking for a quick style-fix (but a quick fix that still WORKS!!) to determine their home’s interior design style & guide their choices confidently.

In The Home Glow Method, I use my experience as a homeowner-turned-pro-designer and teach you EVERYTHING you need to know to transform a space (and the rest of your home) from top to bottom … but in a way that is accessible to people outside of the design trade.

How to:

  • Create your Forever Home Style
  • Assess your givens in light of your Forever Home Style
  • Determine functional & financial priorities
  • Choose where to save vs. spend for style AND long-term quality
  • Work with tradespeople vs. DIY
  • Create floor, lighting, & window treatment plans
  • Think spatially with color/pattern mixing in a space
  • Source to-the-trade decor & furniture for yourself
  • Plan ALL of the particulars of your final room plan & make your custom orders

SO, if you’ve taken The Home Glow Method, you already have the information in the Home Style Master Decoder. But if you want to put all your style mix choices in the handy-dandy new Master Decoder Chart Template that comes with it, by all means, sign up for this fun new offering!

Yes, all of the materials in the Home Style Master Decoder are available for you to review at your convenience as soon as you purchase.

The Home Style Master Decoder™ is available for the foreseeable future & business of Home Glow Design! Should we ever discontinue the product or cease to operate as a business, you will have ample time to download and/or print any materials in advance.

The Home Style Master Decoder™ contains proprietary information, available for purchase by individuals. I spent years of time & tons of money learning the design business. If you like what you see, I would LOVE it if you would recommend it to all your friends! But please don’t share.

If you aren’t satisfied with the Home Style Master Decoder™, just reach out to me via email within 14 days and I will refund your purchase, no questions asked. Scout’s honor!

In return, I trust that you are also a person of integrity and that you’ll only ask for a refund if you disagree with everything I teach, feel like I’ve misrepresented what the Decoder contains, or find it of absolutely no design value to you. :)

How much time & money can I save using The Home Style Master Decoder™?

I’ll answer your question with 2 questions in return:

1. How much time have you already wasted trying to find answers to your home style questions, and yet you still find yourself trapped in the Pinterest rabbit hole?

2. How much money have you already spent on decor that doesn’t work with your home?

I have nearly a hundred happy design clients & students who attest to the VALUE of my professional insight in helping them transform their “blah” houses into the timeless “homes” of their dreams. “Penny saved, pound wasted,” my friends. Invest in good help, and the payoff will be worth it!

The Home Style Master Decoder™ is a BRAND NEW product for homeowners who want to *quickly and strategically* decode their home’s timeless style mix to guide their decor choices. As such, I don’t have any testimonials yet. That’s why I’m offering it at this limited time introductory price!

However, these exact concepts are taught in The Home Glow Method®, my complete interior design course for homeowners, as well. The Home Glow Method has had rave reviews. Head over to that information page to see what students are saying!

(And if you’d like to provide a testimonial for The Home Style Master Decoder, I’d be so grateful if you’d email me at Your feedback helps me improve my offerings for you all!)

Frequently Asked Questions

“I’m almost ready … I just have a few more questions.”

How does The Method differ from other interior design courses out there?

From my research, I’ve found 3 different kinds of design courses out there (though, to be honest, there aren’t many at all) besides The Home Glow Method:

  • Courses aimed at people who want to BECOME interior designers. We’re talking a certification of some sort. Probably not what you’re going for.
  • Inspirational/aspirational courses by million-dollar decorators that tell you to “buy what you love.” These are the courses that have the designers walking into high-end antiques stores & pulling their inspiration from some vintage French textile they picked up on a sourcing trip to Lyon. Or perhaps they find inspiration in the graffitied murals of Mexico City. You get my drift – beautiful, inspirational, amazing … but not very practical for most homeowners. ☺
  • Courses by homeowners-turned-bloggers. Much of their inspiration & sourcing is drawn from catalogs & DIY.

The Home Glow Method is different in that I teach you to THINK, PLAN, BUDGET & SOURCE like a professional designer would for your home. In The Method, I teach you how to do this for yourself, so you don’t need to pay a designer to get a home that looks like it was created by one.

I feel like I’ve read it all, seen it all, and I’m still stuck on how to move forward with designing my home. How would this course be any different?

Yes, there is a TON of inspiration out there. So much so, that it can be really tough to put your stake in the ground. HOWEVER, I’m going to give you a super cool FORMULA that will help you FOCUS — clearing out the options that aren’t right for you and your home, while helping you streamline your own preferences to create a style that will guide you for the rest of your Forever Home journey.

Will I really have time to design my Forever Home, myself?

The lessons + Q&A sessions will take about 1-2 hours per week. How much you put into creating your plan is up to you.

The Home Glow Method has taken the fluff out of decorating (while still fostering unique character!) and has been crafted with IMPLEMENTATION in mind. We give you a SUPER valuable short-list of tools and resources to help you focus your design time and keep the overwhelm at bay.

I’ll be frank. Design takes time – that’s why most homeowners try to decorate using one-off design decisions (that frequently fail!) rather than create a REALLY GOOD PLAN. However, the more at-ease you get with the “Forever Home Style” you create in The Method and the more familiar you get with the resources at hand, the more quickly you’ll be able to come up with room plans down the road.

It takes me 20-30 hours to design a room for clients. Expect it to take you at least that amount of time for your first room design overall, and probably more.

The beauty of The Home Glow Method is that you have LIFETIME access to the course & updates — even the LIVE Q&As will be archived for your reference. You can go at your own pace. You will make PROGRESS on your home in less time than if you were searching for all this info on your own. Not to mention, all the mistakes & back-and-forth waste of time due to lack of confidence in your vision & decisions!

Saving time is a good thing when you’re super busy, yes?

Do you have a refund policy?

There are no refunds for The Home Glow Method. Clients pay designers (myself included) $400-$800 for a 2-hour consultation alone, based upon experience & expertise. The value of that experience & expertise doesn’t decrease if a client chooses not to implement the designer’s ideas.

In The Home Glow Method, I give you EVERYTHING I wish I’d known as a new homeowner, over more than 10 hours of content; I don’t keep anything secret. And you can ask me anything in the Q&As. That kind of information has value, regardless of whether you choose to use it.

Moreover, you’ll walk away with the skills to design your entire home, not just a single space. Learning how to fish has more value than a single fish dinner!

What if I’m not on Facebook. Will I still get value from The Method?

Weekly community interaction, along with potential extra examples I provide to accompany the course will happen in our private FB Group. LIVE Q&As will be held on Zoom and replays uploaded to FB.

For various reasons, some students do not want to be on Facebook, and I COMPLETELY understand. Unfortunately, after exploring many routes for community interaction, FB is the best platform for The Method at this time.

HOWEVER – you will receive everything you need in the coursework itself. Here is what Teresa (a non-Facebook using Method alum) has to say:

“I don’t think The Method needs to offer an alternative to Facebook to those of us who don’t use it, whatever our reasons. I’ve received more than ample value for my small investment in the Home Glow Method!”

When will the LIVE Q&A sessions be held?

LIVE Q&As will be held on Fridays at 12 PM EST, with a few exceptions. You can submit questions ahead of time, even if you can’t be present. All recordings will be uploaded to the FB group, so you can watch at any time.

Just a little note.

I can speak from my own, very recent home transformation experience and what a blessing it has been to my family during the stresses of self-quarantine.

We’ve lived in our Forever Home for 8 years, decorating over time, and we recently completed a major renovation/restoration of the hub of our home — our kitchen — RIGHT before COVID-19 in fact!

The space was once dark and cramped and completely unlike our family’s unique style, but it would require a SIGNIFICANT financial & emotional resources on our part to create what we needed. But we also felt that our family’s emotional well-being was WORTH THE INVESTMENT.

I can’t even begin to express how that investment in our home has changed our quality of life – especially during social distancing from COVID-19.

Instead of tripping over one another and constantly being annoyed by a pivotal space that didn’t work, we have beauty and order around us. Things stay neater, because things have a place. We can relax and hang out together comfortably, and that comfort helps us enjoy each other more.

The Power of Home is Real! I can't wait for you to join me inside The Home Glow Method and transform your OWN forever home!
