Ratings & Reviews

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. <br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>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. <br/><br/>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. <br/><br/>Thanks to Christi, my home expresses my personality, while at the same time being comfortable, beautiful, and welcoming.

Interior design. Brentwood, CA

Work Description:

Nursery for Boy/Girl twins and connecting bathroom. Help all around the house with accessory placement, portait hanging, and furniture placement.

Christi's gorgeous taste, wealth of knowledge and eye for color and pattern has helped me time and again in making my house a warm and inviting home for my family. Her paint selections have always been spot on, and beautiful in the light of each specific room at any time of day. She has the ability to walk into a room and make the few tweeks needed with what I already have to improve the use of space and design. Always patient, sensitive to my budget, and always available to discuss my needs, she not only has advised me, but educated me as well. When stumped with how to design a nursery for my soon to arrive boy/girl twins, she came to my rescue. The space she created was not only more adorable than anything I could find in a magazine, it was fully functional for the insane needs of caring for infant twins, even at 3am! Currently, my house needs to be painted, and I wouldn't think of even beginning this project without her color consultation. I highly recommend Christi Towne, based on using her for repeated projects that have stood the test of time and her warmth and dedication to her client.

Interior design. Brentwood, CA

Work Description:

Interior design of Master Bedroom, including draperies, lighting, rug, bedding and accessories. Draperies in living and dining room.

With her expertise, she is able to create an ideal space for myself and my family; we have found that we love coming home and being home, because our surroundings have been custom tailored to who we are. Christi has created a sancuary of livable elegance, reflective of my personality and lifestyle by maximizing my budget and most importantly, listening to me. This combination of talents is rare in the design world- I feel so lucky to have found her. I am comfortable recommending her as I hold both Christi Towne Designs and her talent in the highest esteem."

We have had interior decorating work done in our home by Christi Towne, and were very pleased with her knowledge of the business. She is right on top of all details. We also have friends who used her and they were very impressed with what she did for them. We highly recommend her for interior decorating.
