ZANDER’S INTERIORS, INTERIOR DESIGNER
“As the next generation of leadership for our family business, I am excited to build on my previous 18 years with Zander’s Interiors! When I most recently joined Hovde Properties for nearly four years, I embraced the challenge of establishing a design department and overseeing the design of their Conservancy View development. I am now prepared to capitalize on my experiences and begin the creative journey of design and client relationships that will ensure Zander’s Interiors’ vitality and longevity. Design is more than a job, it is my passion.”
Christina has nearly 20 years of experience in the field both before and after earning her Masters of Fine Arts in Interior Architecture and Design at The George Washington University. Originally from Illinois, she has lived and worked as a designer in multiple locations, including New York City, Chicago, Amsterdam, and Washington DC. She and her family live in the Westmorland neighborhood of Madison, where they enjoy easy access to bike paths, parks, tennis courts, and a wealth of great restaurants.
Christina moved to Madison in 2012 as an independent interior designer and has worked with dozens of clients here on everything from bathroom renovations to “man caves” to entire home makeovers, guiding each one to reflect the client’s unique style and taste. “I believe a home’s design and space are part of a holistic approach to living, so I put a lot of thought into each project I undertake.”
Her approach is based on her classic education and years of experience with a lifelong love of design. And her personal style can be described as warm contemporary—a mix of modern clean lines and natural warm materials.
