"I understand the demands of daily life, the sensory overload of busy days, and the calming power of a beautiful, functional home."

Christine has specialized in interior design, antiques, and the luxury home furnishings world for over twenty-five years. A designer on the Emmy award-winning PBS television show, "This Old House", she trained at National Trust (UK) houses, Sotheby's London, museums, and art galleries as well as at Harvard University and Sotheby's Institute. In 1991 Christine co-founded the famous Rhode Island home store, The Cottage at Four Corners. She has lectured on design at Sotheby's New York, the Boston Architectural College, and Wentworth Institute. She gives back to the Greater Boston community with an emphasis on green spaces, historic preservation, and the Arts.

She lives with her two sons in a 19th century historic house on the edge of Boston, where in December 1782 the French Infantry under Rochambeau 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

"Christine is a consummate professional who seamlessly blends her creativity, keen insight, communication skills, education and experience, business intellect and project management with her passion for design. She brings a high level of integrity to her work and a solid ability to listen to her clients' vision, which enable her to deliver design projects that exceed expectations."
