My Story

Hi! I’m Wendy Phillips, principal designer at Wendy Phillips Design (WPD).  If you review my portfolio or follow me on Instagram, you will see my passion is custom residential design. I have always known design is my superpower but it took me 40 years to pursue it professionally. I graduated from the University of Puget Sound with a degree in Psychology and returned to school in 2014 to complete Architecture and Technical Design coursework. I launched WPD in 2016 and I am excited to work with you on your upcoming project.

My professional design experience includes small-scale updates, extensive remodels, and custom built homes. Each project is unique and I offer a variety of services tailored to fit your needs. My services include space planning, kitchen and bath design, interior architecture, material and finish selections, plans with specifications, 3D renderings, color consultation, design management, and furnishings.

 After several years in business, I have created a multi-phase design process that is organized and easy to navigate. Phase I consists of reviewing your completed “Project Inquiry” form followed by a brief phone call to discuss the details. Should we choose to move forward, all new projects begin with a 2-hour Initial Design Consultation.

This meeting is to get acquainted, take a closer look at your space and outline a scope of work. We talk about budgets, timelines, how much it may cost to achieve your goals, and how my experience will bring value to your project. Once a scope and budget is approved, we review and approve a personalized Letter of Agreement, collect a design deposit, and then get to work. This is when the fun really begins!

I am a member of Northwest Society of Interior Designers (NWSID) and the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA). I have served three terms on the NWSID Board since 2019 and I am active in both chapters. I am a native Washingtonian and reside in Poulsbo with my husband of 26 years, two labs and a flock of hens. When not in the studio, I can be found digging in my garden, running the trails with my dogs, cruising the waters of Puget Sound, or planning my next travel adventure.

Thank you for considering me for your project. I look forward to designing something beautiful together!
