Christina Byers is known for her upbeat, fresh, and timeless interiors. Christina’s “sweet spot” is designing in her self-described cleaned-up traditional - not with the swags, fringe, and fussy furniture of yesteryear, but a modernized spin on classic lines integrating a thoughtful mix of color, pattern, and texture. Living just blocks from the water provides Christina with enduring inspiration which often comes through in the subtle seaside feel of her work.
The key to each project’s success is the close relationship Christina forms with her clients, and her ability to tailor results that reflect each client's individual style. Her laid-back nature enables her to lead a project without dictating, and make sure everyone’s actually enjoying the process. Busy clients truly appreciate Christina’s ability to curate their selections to make decision making easy, and within budget.
An artist at heart with an entrepreneurial spirit, Christina graduated from Lafayette College with a dual major in Studio Art & Art History and Business and Economics. She launched her career at Ralph Lauren Home Collection, and subsequently worked for Ethan Allen and Crate&Barrel, honing her design and styling skills and developing her own personal style along the way.
Christina lives in Port Washington with her husband and two children. In her free time she can be found playing platform tennis, skiing, sailing, spending time at the dog run, or cheering on her children from the sidelines.
What our clients are saying
“My husband and I hired Christina several years back to give some life to our unused living room, and were so happy with the results. When we made the decision to undergo a major addition and whole-house renovation a year ago, we knew exactly who to call. From day one, Christina liaised between the contractor and subcontractors and us, simplifying the process so we weren’t overwhelmed at any point, ON TOP of planning and furnishing every nook and cranny of our entire house. She made designing a kitchen and several bathrooms easy, curated products and refined our selections so that the process was actually fun, filled with laughs, and dare I say, kind of stress free? She presented us with selections that were refined but still reflected out (sometimes eclectic taste) and made sure that our house did not look generic. She also worked within our budget. There is so much more that I could write, but I promise that if you hire Christina, you won’t be sorry.” - A.J.
"Christina Byers is a phenomenal interior designer. She transformed by master bedroom into exactly what my husband and I envisioned. It is a beautiful peaceful oasis for us. She also renovated our three bathrooms from picking out tile, light fixtures, vanities and paint colors for every room of the house. Her expertise and knowledge was such an asset. She is so easy to talk to and adhered to our budget. Christina will be the one I call when I renovate other rooms in our home. She was worth every penny!!!"
