About Christine, the Friendly Designer
Meet Christine Friend.
Born and raised in Vancouver, Christine Friend is a true Vancouverite who loves the beauty of the West Coast combined with the vibrancy of the city. Influenced by contemporary classic designs, she is best known for adding a sense of fun and originality to the look and feel of any space. Her main goal in desgn is to ensure the end result reflects the personalities of her clients while maximizing the functionality of the space – keeping budgets in mind, of course.
A design project with Christine need not break the bank. Her philosophy is; a beautiful and welcoming space is dependent on the people who live and work there – not on how much money is spent.
Entering her 19th year of experience in Interior Designing and Decorating, Christine relies heavily on the relationships she has developed with suppliers and trades people. Honesty, great style, and good common sense are a few of the attributes Christine applies to her work as well as her life. Above all, she believes excellent communication is the key to delivering a finished project, having her clients watching the clock until it’s time to go home and enjoy their fresh, new space.
Christine specializes in residential and small commercial work; however, special projects and events such as the BC Home & Garden Shows, Vancouver Home & Design Shows, and Culinary Events have kept things interesting & exciting.
