"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 in National Trust houses, at Sotheby's London, and in museums and art galleries. In 1991 she founded the home store, The Cottage at Four Corners, in Rhode Island. She has lectured about design at Sotheby's, New York, the Boston Architectural College, and Wentworth Institute, and gives back to the Boston community with an emphasis on green spaces, historic preservation, the Arts, and education.
Christine lives with her two sons in a, 1890s historic house near Boston, where in December 1782, the French Infantry under Rochambeau decamped 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.
