What's in a name?

For us, a lot!

If you’re here, you’ve probably noticed we’ve made all sorts of changes, including the unveiling of the Phillips House Co brand.

Since starting our online shop last November, we’ve made some great strides forward and they’ve been just a bit quicker than we’d ever planned. It turns out, you love our little shop, and we see and feel your support! When we launched our e-commerce home, we intended to keep our businesses all under one “roof” at High Street Homes. We’ve always been protective of our brand and value authenticity.  Taking a small-shop, word-of-mouth approach suited us just fine. Afterall, it’s comfortable, well-controlled and safe. But there was a small nudge inside us—one we kept pushing aside— to grow our business and expand our stable of brands. After the launch of our shop, the nudge became a rather large push, and after hours of research, lots of questions and even more prayers, we decided it was time to roll up our sleeves and launch Phillips House Co as a standalone entity. We’ve spent a lot of time on the backend making sure our values are present in each of our businesses and platforms, and that you would see and feel us in each space. That’s one of the main reasons we decided to give our shop such a personal name.  Phillips House Co isn’t just our namesake it’s also where we share our dreams, test our products and live out what we believe. Our beloved High Street Homes isn’t going anywhere. It’s actually getting a new infusion of focus and attention as the place we share our design + build projects and our latest home listings on the market with you.


The last new name to introduce isn’t new at all! It’s our names, Brett and Kara, now at @BrettandKara on Instagram. The feed is the next evolution of our old @HighStreetHomes account and it’s where you will find a little bit of everything...everyday snippets of our real lives, news and special announcements about our various projects, and five smiling faces, grateful to be sharing the journey with all of you.
