I bought a new home after being in my old home for 17 years. I wanted the new home to be comfortable and beautiful but not look “decorated”. I wasn’t averse to adding new pieces, but I wanted to use most of my current things which were collected and cherished over the years. I’d never worked with an Interior Designer before and I hit the jackpot when my first experience was working with Christi. Whatever expectations I had were exceeded.
First of all, Christi is very, very productive. She immediately gets to know your tastes and budget and works very hard to satisfy both. She has lots of experience, ideas, resources and products, which she brings every time she comes to my home.
We had a couple of big challenges, one of which was getting an ottoman/coffee table that would fit the scale of my very large living room. We couldn’t find one, so Christi designed one for me and had it made, working with me every step of the way to make sure I’d like the finished product. It’s absolutely magnificent. Exactly what I wanted in both form and function. Her attention to detail was superb, thank goodness, so the finished product is a real work of art, from the leather hide, to the craftsmanship used by her resources.
In addition to her skill as a designer, one of Christi’s best qualities is her personality. She’s high energy, positive, optimistic, has a great sense of humor and is one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. And she was always willing to challenge me to try new things, with absolutely no pressure if I didn’t like them.
Thanks to Christi, my home expresses my personality, while at the same time being comfortable, beautiful, and welcoming.
