Meet The Team

Founder of The Traditional List

Sophie Phelps



For as long as she can remember, Sophie has appreciated classic design. Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, she grew up surrounded by homes filled with wallpaper, antiques and traditional furnishings. Later in life, when Sophie started her own family and began decorating their home, her appreciation for classic and timeless design endured. However, she was surprised when she could not find any publications that consistently shared interiors that were both traditional while also fresh and functional. Furthermore, she also found herself wishing there was a destination to find resources and creative professionals to help to assist in helping bring these interiors to life within her own home. Therefore, in 2021 she launched The Traditional List to help bridge the growing gap between social media and the interior design world, creating a destination for celebrating traditional design and connecting readers with industry experts to help them bring their own design dreams to life.
