Who We Are

Hi my name is Matthew Phillips the owner of Simplicity by Design.

Ten years ago a friend asked for some help repairing a bay window frame in an old Edwardian in Brunswick.

Eighteen months later we had restumped and refloored, demolished and rebuilt the complete back half of the house. Hard plastered every room in the house and replaced a few ceilings cornices and ornate roses.

Along the way I found a new career and have completed dozens of complex and tricky restorations.
