"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, major museums, and art galleries as well as at Harvard University and Sotheby's Institute. In 1991 she co-founded the Rhode Island home store, The Cottage at Four Corners. She has lectured about 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.
Christine lives with her two sons in a 19th century historic house near Boston, where in December 1782 the French Infantry under Rochambeau camped for three days in what is now her 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.
