Christine's affinity for design started as soon as she could rearrange her childhood bedroom. Experimenting with space, color, and style has been a life-long joy. Having lived overseas for many years, she was inspired to create home several times. She studied Interior Design & Interior Architecture and has worked on various residential and commercial projects from her home in San Francisco, California. Drawing from her global travel, she creates designs that fuse different styles of decor with warmth, comfort, and beauty in mind. Christine's aspires to offer design concepts that center around environmental and social sustainability.
From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
Travel. The geography, the colors, the customs and styles of our world move me to create designs that reflect their richness. I love mixing textiles, patterns and textures in a space; these offer depth and interest.
What drives you to design?
A couple of things. One is the creativity that comes with understanding the needs and preferences of a client while creating a space that is beautiful, customized, and comfortable. The other is the satisfaction that comes from experiencing a well designed room-it just makes people feel good.
Tell us your biggest design secret:
My design "secret" is lighting. Lighting makes all the difference. A poorly illuminated space can really ruin any design, no matter how good it is. My friends make fun of how many different lighting sources I have; but, they also appreciate it.
