I understand the demands of daily life, the sensory overload of busy days, and the calming power of a beautiful, functional home.
A former gallery director, museum curator, published arts writer, and auction house specialist, Christine has specialized in the luxury home furnishings world for over twenty-five years. Designing spaces, she takes cues from historical precedent even in the most modern environment.
The interior designer on the Emmy award winning PBS television show, "This Old House", she trained in National Trust houses, Sotheby's London specialist departments, and in the History of Art and Architecture Department at Harvard University. She regularly lectures at design schools in New York and Boston, and gives back to the community with an emphasis on green spaces, the Arts, and education. Christine loves old houses. She lives with her two sons (one who likes antiques while the other loves modern design) in an 1890s historic house in a Boston suburb built on the land where the French Army under Rochambeau camped for three days in December 1782.
"Thoughtful, energetic, and the most knowledgeable designer I've met, Christine is great at teaming up with even the least "designer-y" clients and gelling creative solutions that sing for them while honoring the history and aesthetics of the surroundings. She is an encyclopedia of decorative arts know-how and guides the toughest choices for color, hardware, fixtures, furnishings and everything else with a minimum of fuss!" Sarah Monzon, producer Bob Vila, This Old House, and The History Channel.
