At Christy B Design, our mission is to transform homes and lives through customized interior design.  With vision and precision, we lead our valued clients through the design-build process in integrity and excellence.


The world of interior design and renovation is fraught with complexities beyond the bubble of a Pinterest board.  As much as we love to collect ideas and inspiration (we are creative after all!) on any given day you'll find our team performing the unglamorous (yet very necessary) tasks of the design-build process.

Whether we are creating drawings in order to better communicate with an installer, adding backorder updates to our tracking software for the umpteenth time so we can properly plan for installation, or strategizing around unexpected developments on the job site ... we do the unenviable tasks in order to create the enviable interior.

There are many steps to our process and we're happy to discuss them all in detail with you!  Or you can save yourself the bother, dream of your perfect customized home, and let us handle the details.
