I'm Christy B., founder of Christy B. Design, and advocate of custom living. If you're here it means you've probably just bought a house in need of updating or you have been wanting to transform your home for years and haven't known where to turn.
I know what it's like to dream of creating a custom home, it's been my obsession since I was a little. While some girls were dreaming of their wedding day, I was collecting floor plans, building dollhouses, and imagining redesigns of the old farm house I grew-up in!
When the big day finally came, it was a rush of excitement that quickly faded into frustration. Having worked in the design industry for nearly 10 years, I knew the challenges that came with renovation, but wasn't prepared for the emotional toll it would take acting as both designer and homeowner.
I constantly found myself wondering, "how do people survive this?" People that don't have a design background, access to trade resources, technical skills and aren't using a designer ... how do they survive their renovation!? Then of course the next thing I thought was, "there has to be a better way."
After my own disenchanting experience I felt compelled to completely revamp my business and focus on providing an organized, detailed, creative approach to the renovation and interior design process that I didn't see being offered elsewhere.
Renovating or redesigning your home is too important of an opportunity for positive change to be left to chance or in the hands of providers who aren't professional and don't have your best interests at heart.
Despite frustrations, my custom home turned out to be a spectacular transformation and everything I had hoped for. I wouldn't change a thing, not even the challenging experience, because it led me here to my purpose; to help you rule your renovation and create a home you love.
I hope you'll stay in touch and I look forward to hearing from you when you are ready to take the leap into your dream home.
Christy Biberich, founder of Christy B. Design, is passionate about home improvement. Growing up in a small farming town, she didn't know interior design existed, yet methodically collected floorplans from her mother's Home & Garden magazines.
Her interest in design continued as she studied Theatre Art and History of Art & Architecture at the University of Pittsburgh, where her first design opportunities came in the form of sets and scenery and costumes. After moving to Los Angeles, Christy honed her skills with several companies specializing in custom design, kitchen cabinetry, renovation, and space planning.
She appeared on The Style Network as a guest expert and her award winning color concepts have been featured on Dwell.com. Christy’s projects and expertise have been published with The Crave Company, Apartment Therapy, The LA Times, DTLA Magazine, and eHow.com.
She was recently seen on HGTV’s Brother vs. Brother, featuring the Property Brothers, Jonathan and Drew Scott. Christy was one of only ten home experts selected from across the country to renovate and add value to homes in the Los Angeles area through smart design choices while on a tight budget and timeline. She recently completed her own home renovation in Los Angeles with her husband and two dogs, Lulu and Mr. Bubbles.
