I understand the demands of busy daily life, family, and entertaining, and the calming power of a beautiful, functional home.

Christine has specialized in fine and decorative art, antiques, interior design, and the luxury home furnishings world for over twenty-five years. The designer on the Emmy award-winning PBS television show, "This Old House", she trained at National Trust (UK) houses, Sotheby's London, museums, art galleries, Harvard University, and Sotheby's Institute, London. In 1991, Christine co-founded the much-loved 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.

Christine resides with her sons in a 19th-century historic house near Boston. In December 1782, the French Infantry under Rochambeau camped for three days in what is now her garden.

"We have worked with Christine on several high-end homes over the past few years. She brings with her a palpable energy, a love for design, and a collaborative spirit. The interior design process can overwhelm our clients, and to have her leadership and confident guidance is valuable, if not critical, to a project's success." Howard Raley, AIA

"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
