We design and create spaces that propel your intentions forward through color, light, form, and function. Whether our work is online, in person, or a bit of both, we will align how you are living now with your vision for your future. where you'd like to go (or just stay and relax).

It is my work to create beautiful spaces and easeful experiences. 


The journey to building The Good Abode & Christine Martin Design has been one of deep travel through history, community, geology & history. The opportunity to connect with both my own and collective origin stories to bring a sense of place to design projects has been entirely rewarding. From UNESCO heritage sites to community centers to luxurious flats, I take each and every project on with the same philosophies that have become the foundation of my online work.

Here is a selection of those projects:

Copenhagen Flat, DENMARK

Redesign & shopping for high-end home in the heart of the city, 2010

San Miguel Allende, MEXICO

Remodel & Redesign of interior of Unesco World Heritage site home, working with the architects to preserve the integrity of the colonial stone, and collaborating with designers to custom-produce furniture locally as well as featuring local vintage, 2013

Todos Santos, BAJA SUR, MX

new rennovation & rebuild of 5-unit live/work space in the heart of Todos Santos' north end, working with architects, designers, and leading art curation, and all final details, 2020

Luang Prabang, LAOS

Redesigned 12-bedroom boutique hotel, transforming colonial reds & heavy woods into indigo hues and natural light, 2012

From residential to community to historical spaces, I am available for online & in person projects.
