• Born and raised in Denver, Colorado, Chris received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design from Colorado State University.  With a minor in construction management, Chris is well equipped to handle all aspects of design jobs both large and small.
  • Chris’ great-grandparents were residents of Aspen, CO in the late 1800‘s.  From them, Chris inherited her passion for the mountains and was compelled to move to Aspen to begin her career.
  • Chris’ first experience with interior design was with Bethune and Moore, Aspen’s premier furniture and interior design establishment.  She was associated with this prestigious company for ten years.  This was an exciting time for the Roaring Fork Valley as Aspen was just beginning to be recognized internationally as both a destination resort and a coveted area for clients with discriminating tastes.
  • After the founders of Bethune and Moore retired, Chris formed an interior design partnership called Fall Line.  It was during this five year period that Snowmass Village was coming into its own with large homes being built on speculation and luxury condominiums sprouting from its slopes.
  • Eventually Chris’ entrepreneurial spirit drove her to form her own company, Design Project, Inc.  She has been owner/president of this successful enterprise for 28 years.
  • Chris and her husband of 22 years, Mark, live in Glenwood Springs, Colorado centrally located between Aspen and Vail.
