Our Fifth House

Carmel Phillips

Carmel is a wife and mom with a passion for color and pattern, who isn’t afraid to get some paint in her hair. She believes design should be fun, not complicated, and lives for quick under-an-hour DIY projects, bargain hunting and furniture rearranging. She documents all of her projects on her interior design blog, Our Fifth House. Carmel is playing for One80 Place.
