Kristina Phillips brings an international flair to KKID, as she had the good fortune to live in the Bahamas, Germany and France while growing up. She is fluent in Swedish and conversant in French. She believes in bringing culture, authenticity and originality to all of the spaces that she designs.
Her experiences and background have firmly shaped her design sensibility. She comes from a Scandinavian descent - the home of clean lines and simple design. In her early years in the Bahamas, Kristina learned to appreciate and love the wonders and colors of the ocean and nature. Living in Germany she came to understand function versus form and a year in the South of France ignited a passion for searching for those special pieces that tell your home’s story. Spending the remainder of her formative years on the Eastern Shore of Maryland instilled in her an appreciation for Southern graciousness.
Kristina graduated from Denison University with a liberal arts degree, and worked in public relations at Random House publishing. After getting married to her college sweetheart (and favorite dentist!), Kristina stayed home to raise their three children. To fulfill her dream of practicing interior design, she completed the Interior Design Program at the New York School of Interior Design, where she not only honed her skills as a designer, but met her future business partner. Kristina lives in Ridgewood, NJ and summers on Nantucket.
