Hot Talent: Christine Philp

Helping clients refine their vision is the key to success

Hot Talent: Christine Philp After studying interior design at Marymount University, Christine Philp hit a “pivotal moment” in her career when she landed a job with acclaimed Washington designer Thomas Pheasant. Philp spent five years learning the ropes of the business under Pheasant’s wing (no pun intended)—an experience she values to this day.

“Being able to work around Tom taught me that you can find inspiration in anything,” she explains. “But along with the creative side, I learned that interior design is not just about furniture and fabrics. Execution and project management are also very important. So much goes on behind the scenes to make a project excellent.” 

At the helm of her own firm since 2011, Philp says her highest priority is to encourage clients to find their own vision. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” she explains. “My job is to help clients figure that out. I try to see the world through their eyes and once I understand what’s important to them, we can make those things a reality.”
