"I understand the demands of a busy family life, and the calming power of a beautiful, functional home."
A leader in design for twenty five years, Christine was the designer on the Emmy award-winning television show, This Old House. She trained at Harvard, National Trust (U.K.) houses, and at Sotheby's London. A former art gallery director, auction house specialist, and co-founder of The Cottage at Four Corners (R.I.), a home store and design studio, she spent her formative years on Cape Cod and in London. Historic homes are a specialty; her childhood home was an 18th century sea captain's house on Cape Cod. Aided by a small team, Christine oversees projects across the US. A mother of two, she resides in a historic house near Boston where in December 1782, the French Infantry camped for three days in what is now her back garden.
"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.
