Teresa Ann Phillips
Creative, 'Jack of all trades', thinks outside the box, practical, pragmatic, down to earth.
I grew up in Vancouver and moved to the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island in 1998, with my husband and 3 children. My Vancouver floral design business expanded to landscaping in the Comox Valley.
My passion for design has always been there but the practical experience began with a Drafting and Design program at BCIT, followed by extensive renovations and overhauls of my own homes, and projects for family and friends. My role in the family real estate business allowed me to assist clients in preparing their homes for sale – from decluttering to staging.and photos. In 2013 I began retail displays – most noticeably for Hot Chocolates and CakeBread Artisan Bakery in Courtenay. It’s been a gradual and natural process shifting from floral and landscape design to interiors and décor. Now I can incorporate all of that experience into creative designs that give each project a unique and customized feel.
You don't have to live in the Comox Valley either, to benefit from my services. I come to Vancouver regularly and have done work for clients in Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal. I love to travel and if your project is of a scope that will justify it I can come to you where ever you are!
Teresa is incredibly talented and very easy to work with.
We had a wonderful experience working with Teresa when she staged our home for sale. She is highly skilled and most professional . We wished we had worked with her sooner to show us just how great our small space could look . I would not hesitate to give her our strongest reccomendation .

Teresa at TAP Designs has an amazing talent and made my home look elegant ...I recommend Teresa and her ability to create a warm inviting atmosphere
The house looks incredible!!!! Thank you for your vision.
Teresa guided us through this home renovation. She understood the vision I had and ensured the products and colours chosen were good quality, complementary and economical. Teresa was a calm and professional voice when the reno felt stressful. She was a hands-on designer who completed some of the project herself. I highly recommend Teresa and LOVE my new bathroom/master bedroom!
Teresa did a spectacular job ... I would work with her again in a heartbeat. She is down to earth, practical and very knowledgeable. Our experience was fantastic, affordable, finished on time and on budget!!
Teresa worked well with the trades people involved. She was knowledgeable about the amount of work and costs involved. Without Teresa's leadership we do not believe that the project would have been completed in a timely fashion. She proved to be economical in her approach, flexible in her planning and followed through on her commitments. We have received much positive feedback.
