Located in the emerging cultural mosaic of Austin, Texas, Christina Cole Abboud brings a global perspective to her native state after designing bespoke residences worldwide. She is an award-winning designer featured as top 40 designers under 40 in the hardcover book "Generation Next," and has been published in Elle Decor, Milieu, and Harper Bazaar Arabia.

Christina offers her clients a holistic approach and creative process that draws from a multi-disciplinary background in design.
