Wendy Phillips Design (WPD) was established in 2014 with the goal of designing fresh, beautiful spaces. Professional services include consultation & design of residential spaces including kitchen + bath design, architectural detailing, blueprint review & space planning, interior drawings & 3D rendering, cabinetry, finish & fixture specifications, color consultation, furnishings and project management.
Wendy’s approach to project work is flexible and responsive. Wendy works with clients who have a strong vision and she helps them achieve it. Others, who are less sure, she listens and guides them through the design process, helping them formulate their own aesthetic along the way. No project is too large or small. On renovation work, we produce the drawings necessary for permitting and construction alongside reviews from architects and engineers when necessary. On larger, new-build projects, we work in tandem with general contractors, carpenters, and various trade professionals. Project management during construction ensures ideas are communicated visually and orally resulting in successful projects that stand the test of time.
Wendy’s design style is balanced and comfortable. By mixing modern and classic elements, materials and styles an approachable aesthetic is achieved. Her inspiration for projects is drawn from architecture, textiles, traveling, the environment and her client’s wants & needs.
While Wendy’s affinity for design started in childhood, her career path took a different route early on. Wendy graduated from the University of Puget Sound with a degree in Psychology and previously worked in counseling and human resources before pursuing her life-long passion. Her first design-build project was Arrowhead followed by Woodbay in 2015. These personal projects included practical building experience and relationships with local artists and trade professionals. These experiences laid the foundation for WPD and current + future project work. At the same time WPD was established, Wendy returned to school and completed Architecture and Technical Design coursework through Olympic College.
Wendy is proficient in Chief Architect and Revit and a member of NWSID, Seattle Chapter, and NKBA.
Wendy is a native Washingtonian and resides in Poulsbo with her husband, two daughters, labs Willow & Daisy, plus a flock of hens.
