"I understand the demands of a busy family life, and the calming power of a beautiful, functional home."
Heading an interior architecture and design practice for over twenty five years, Creative Director Christine Tuttle was the designer on the Emmy award-winning television show, This Old House. Christine holds an MA in Fine and Decorative Art and Design from Sotheby’s Institute, London. She trained at Harvard, National Trust (U.K.) houses, and was in the Silver, English Furniture, and Modern British Art specialist departments at Sotheby's Bond Street, London. She was also a vetted Design Services Designer at the Boston Design Center.
A former art gallery director, museum curator, 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 all over the East Coast. She resides in an antique house 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 at Bob Vila, This Old House, and The History Channel.
