Christy holds a B.A. from UC Santa Barbara and an M.A. from UC Davis. As a child, Christy has fond memories combing swap meets with her mom for those special pieces that make a room. Christy’s mom had a knack for creating a luxurious feel on a limited budget and it didn’t take long for Christy to pick up that same passion for design and dream big.
“I used to ride the school bus to and from school as a little girl and whenever my bus was late we would have to get on the bus that went to drop the kids off at the houses on the hill. To me they were giant, dream homes, homes you only wish for, and my mouth would drop open every single time. I secretly loved when my bus didn’t show up so I could drive by those homes before I was dropped off at mine. I always knew that one day I would make one of those homes my reality. There was no doubt in my mind. Little did I know I would actually get to design it myself.”
Now Christy helps our clients do the same. Her passion for not just interior design, but acting and fashion plays a roll in her work. “To me, designing a home for someone, is like creating the set of their dreams. It has to be what they envision organized into a well planned out space.”
When not knee deep in flooring and tile samples she’s an avid tennis player and Peloton rider. She’s into the Beatles, country music, hazelnut lattes, pinot noir, chocolate and traveling – but most importantly her three wonderful kids and dog Mila.
With thousands of options, pulling colors, tile, flooring, cabinetry and hardware all together can seem overwhelming, but Christy makes it look easy – as well as enjoyable and fun for our clients.
