Christine is the founder of creative home design group and the lead interior designer of Creative Home Design Group. As a young girl, she felt uncomfortable in the homes of her family that were professionally designed but had that museum feel. I think a lot of us grew up with that 'look but don't touch' home where even the living room was roped off for special occasions", laughed Christine.
When Christine grew up and found herself in a home of her own, she was inspired to break loose from the 'museum" like feel and create a home that was laced with elegant style, comfort, beauty and peace. Family and friends were amazed at her natural talent to create spaces that were not only beautiful but inviting and joyous to all. Before she knew it, she was being asked by friends and family to assist them in making their design dreams come true.
It did not take Christine long to realize that Interior design was more that just a hobby- it was a passion. Christine believes no matter the size of the home or the space, the design should always reflect the individual or family that lives there while providing a warm and inviting environment. Every home and family is unique , she enjoys adapting herself from project to project making each home one-of-a-kind, evoking a sense of joy and love in every space!
She takes great pride in transforming the ordinary into extraordinary. Christine's passion shows in her work- although she doesn't like to call it work. "My grandfather used to tell me that you'll never work a day in your life if you love what you do, and that is exactly how I feel." exclaims Christine.
At Creative Home Design Group, Christine instills the belief that understanding the clients vision is the most important aspect of the whole design in order to achieve a functional, beautiful and well thought out space.
Today, Christine specializes in ground up builds, major renovations and turn-key interior design. As an added benefit, she is a licensed realtor, helping her clients find investment properties or a new home to renovate or build upon. Clients of Christine do not have to look very far for renovations or builds, as she maintains trusted relationships with some of the most prominent builders and architects in South Florida.
Sam and Christine met many years ago through a mutual friend, and knew immediately they made a dream team together . While she designs, he implements her designs effortlessly; it is as though he can see within her minds eye, even, on a blank sheet of paper.
Sam is originally from New York , he became a south Florida resident 32 years ago; he has more than three decades of experience as an interior trim carpenter, and a lead construction supervisor . Involving him in water front properties , including ocean front homes in South Beach, the Hamptons, Palm Beach Island, New York and all of South Florida.
Sam specializes in interior finishes, and some phases of renovations for CHDG, providing detail, and passion in all he does. There isn’t much he doesn’t do when needed, as his talents, are Limitless. You’ll find Sam making a master-piece out of wood for a wall or ceiling, managing a construction project, on top of second story scaffolding, fixing any problem that arises , hanging and creating interior “wow factor” trim, frame outs and much more.
Our clients adore Sam not only for his outstanding work, but also for his kind, dedicated and empathetic nature . often we hear “ Sam is a dream to work with”, which is no surprise, he certainly aims to please.
Sam is the Father of a well-rounded, successful Son, and the grandfather to two amazing little girls, who he cherishes and sets a beautiful example for ! In his down time you’ll find him spending time with his deeply loved family, coaching hockey as an advanced level 4 certified hockey coach, or having a good glass of wine with homemade pasta, and… truth be told he is always crafting something, even on his “off” days.
We are truly grateful to have Sam as a fundamental part of our team, his overall attitude, his drive and his hard work!

Makayla, Christine's daughter, discovered her natural ability to scale floor plans and design layouts at a very young age. Growing up on construction sites, its no foreign language to be able to read and understand a full set of plans, alongside with her Mother.
Although, Makayla's true passion lies in graduating college with her M.D. in pediatrics in order to help and heal children of all ailments and disease; she continues to support the clients and her mothers' drive to create their vision. With great care and detail, Makayla has a natural talent to see detail and fashion forward design.
We are grateful to have Makayla on board as a Jr. assistant, now through her future journey into the medical field and so are our clients, for her nurturing , selfless abilities and dedicated work.
You will find Makayla running errands, scaling floor plans, answering the phones and supporting the team in anyway she can. When Makayla is not at school or assisting at CHDG, you will find her reading a book, surfing, cooking or riding her horse with her Dad.
