IS OUR PASSION
With each project, Cristi and her team strive to deliver inspirational interiors that reflect the lifestyles, passions and personal tastes of her clients.
A home’s interior should both stimulate your senses and put you at ease. It should be a space that makes the rituals of daily life pleasurable. The design must keep function at the forefront, while incorporating beauty, quality and the art of the unexpected.
Cristi will assist clients with as much of the design process as requested - whether the project requires design drawings and material specifications for the construction or remodeling phase, furnishing and accessorizing a new home, creating an interior color palette or simply helping pull together an existing space with the addition of a few star pieces.
She works with trusted craftsmen and custom furniture makers as required, to create seamless, well executed and beautifully finished projects, delivered on time and on budget.
With more than fifteen years of interior design experience Cristi has developed a reputation for creating unique and beautifully crafted interiors that reflect the lifestyles and passions of her clients.
After completing her training at Arizona State University's nationally renowned 5 year interior architecture program she went on to work with top design firms in Los Angeles and Scottsdale. Feeling a strong need to dedicate more time to each project and develop stronger relationships with her clients, she formed City Chic Interior Design.
Returning clients and positive word of mouth advertising have kept her busy with everything from large scale new construction projects to her "one room at a time" clients who prefer a more conservative project approach. Her desire is to remain a small, bespoke studio offering clients a creative and practical, but ultimately very personal, design service.
Knowing how important it is to “love where you live”, Cristi strives to make every home she works on a sanctuary for its owner.
WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
“I had always been hesitant about hiring a designer, worried the house wouldn’t feel like us when all was said and done. Cristi worked together with our architect as we designed our home. The creative and beautiful ideas she brought to the project are priceless! My wife and I couldn’t be happier with how the process unfolded and with the final result.”
-Amit Patel, Scottsdale, AZ
“I was very pleased with my experience with City Chic. Cristi took my garbled up ideas and designed the exact contemporary look I was seeking in my family room, kitchen and living room. She has created dazzling spaces in my home and has helped me to make it my home at last. It is to the point where I don't want to make any decisions without her input, as I can tell she has the vision for the final product. I have been getting tons of compliments on the paint colors, accessories and furniture, and I would definitely recommend City Chic to others.”
-Gail Valtier, Gilbert, AZ
“I had been looking for assistance with interior design off and on for several weeks, but had not found anyone I wanted to work with. After checking out her site, which is great, I emailed her to inquire about meeting to help me w/ a kitchen and master bath remodel. She was quick to respond and after our meeting, I was so glad I contacted her. You just know when you click with someone. I felt she had a good sense of what I wanted for my home and I was right. I spent a good deal of money on my project and don’t feel like I wasted a penny, I am so happy with the results. The kitchen and bath are the showcase rooms in the house! I highly recommend Cristi for interior design needs!”
-Rick Anderson, Paradise Valley, AZ
“We love everything you have chosen! It was our pleasure to meet you and work with you! So looking forward to completing the house at a later date with your help! Thanks, Cristi, for everything!”
-Lori Peterson, Scottsdale, AZ
“I used Cristi and City Chic for an extensive remodel of our home. She also selected things throughout the house, including: tile, paint, cabinets, furniture, lighting, bedding, art and accessories. She is extremely professional and has fabulous, creative ideas. She turned our home from blah to WOW. She was always available for questions and help, especially when last minute changes and decisions had to be made and she came up with quick, but well thought out solutions. Her work shows amazing attention to detail. She helped us work with a challenging contractor. Cristi is a beautiful person that I am so lucky to have found!”
