CHRISTINE MARTIN //FOUNDER + LEAD DESIGNER//
While living internationally for over a decade, Christine fell in love with the world around her. The result was a profound appreciation for creating home wherever she found herself.
Influenced by the medinas of Tunis, the cityscapes of Seoul, and the hand-crafting villages of Colombia, she gained a sensibility for global styles and a love of bringing eclectic designs to life.
She now resides and designs in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico where she works with clients both in person and online to design cozy and personalized spaces.
With a value for sustainability,The Good Abode favors a design style with rustic/modern elements, tons of plants, and unique works of art.
