Christine’s aesthetic is best described as an imaginative union of modern and classical influences where elegant rooms are enlivened with a fresh mixture of pattern, color and texture. Having trained in drawing, sculpture and printmaking, Christine brings a unique artistic perspective to each interior she designs.

Prior to starting her practice, Christine spent twelve years working for top-tier design firms across the country. Christine’s work experience included a position as a Junior Designer with Peter Marino Architect, a Senior Designer with decorator Michael S.
