About Me.jpg


Hello there and welcome! I’m Anya Phillips, the designer and owner behind heart that built me. Design is a word that can be defined in a multitude of ways. To me, design is extremely personal and there is not a one-size fits all method. I have a unique ability to incorporate peoples personalities into the design of their home. My hope and desire is that each of my clients’ homes reflect their heart. Home should be a place of respite and peace. A deep breath at the end of the day. I think surrounding yourself with things that make you smile and bring you joy are important. Everything from family heirlooms to paint color to art work should work and flow well together in a space, creating a cohesive story your home is telling. It can take time to bring that story together, but the process is often my favorite part. 

My family is the most important thing on the planet to me. I’m married to the love of my life. We have two beautiful, miracle, tenacious, busy, world-changing kiddos – who ironically happen to share a birthday. Six years apart . Our fur-baby, Totch Wilson, is lovingly referred to as our third child. We are both deeply involved in Young Life sitting on the board for the Northwestern Division, and involved with Medical Teams International (MTI). I am a Seattleite, and while not a native, I’ve lived here longer than I’ve lived anywhere in my life; I think the PNW is one of the most beautiful places in the world.

No matter what kind of project you’ve got, from rearranging furniture you already have to building a custom home, I’d love to hear from you. I can’t wait to see what we can create together!
