Design Reviews From the Floor Up ~ Design With Christine

December's Design Reviews from the Floor Up introduces you to Design With Christine. It's fresh, practical and inspiring.

I came across Design With Christine as a result of a Google alert for carpet. It immediately caught my attention.

Can you guess why?

I love that the blog name includes 'Christine.' Furthermore, Christine mentions - in her About Me section - that she is "really good at getting stains out of carpet."

So, not only do we share a name, but we also have an affinity for carpet... And, she loves Jane Austin!

Christine Fife is an ASID interior designer with 11 years of design experience. She launched Design With Christine in March 2008. Her first posts explore mantle pieces and how best to showcase them as design elements, based on Architectural Digest photos of rooms in the White House. She definitely should have been consulted for some of these rooms as her observations are right on! I can literally 'see' the points that she makes.

What I also love about Design With Christine is how she welcomes design questions from her readers. She answers those in blogposts, illustrating her solutions with copious photos. What a terrific way do bring her design acumen to life and share it with others!

Check out, too, her Wallpaper Wednesday posts. I now look at wallpaper with a whole new set of eyes.

Definitely explore Design With Christine. I expect you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Christine,
Thank you so much for the kind comments! Right out of college I had a job as an interior designer for "Brent's Carpet One" in Newhall, CA, and was well trained in all things carpet. We would often have past customers call up with questions on how to get some kind of stain out of their carpet. Needless to say, I learned a lot :) Now when I hear of a friend with a stain, I want them to let me have a "go" at it. On a few occasions, I have tried this with people that I didn't know very well, and I think they thought I was a bit "psycho." :)
Thanks again!
Christine

Christine, you definitely learned a lot from your exposure to carpet from Brent's Carpet One! In my book, anyone that committed to removing carpet stains is a hero! Thanks again for sharing your design passion.
