Staging with attention to classic elegance and statement pieces is the key to setting the vibe.
Karras employs a mix of new, vintage and antique pieces to provide a lived in, welcoming feel to capture the prospective buyer’s eye and leave a magical lasting impression. Often the clients find themselves wanting the home with all her carefully chosen pieces included in the sale.
Her concierge team can upgrade a home with many levels of intervention, from simply providing extraordinary furnishings from her curated inventory or a combination of services that include decluttering and organization, a fresh coat of paint, unique lighting, window treatments and anything needed to refresh a property and make it pop.
Karras has been published in the magazines I mentioned above as well as numerous other highly respected interior design publications. Her work is coveted for being so original and so thorough. She follows the rules while breaking them at the same time—and that takes tremendous refinement.
Christina draws feeling out of a room—creating moods that reverberate deeply within the space. She blends patterns and textiles and eras to create epic environments that are warm and inviting. Christina possesses a wealth of knowledge and resources for collecting the finest vintage items, importing gems from abroad or producing custom designs of her own.

I was first introduced to her via her dynamic self-titled shop on LaBrea Avenue. A cornucopia of vintage, new and custom furniture and accessories, each piece was unique and well- crafted. Her interior design work is just as astounding — and demanding. From a slender barbershop to an inspirational studio for one of the world’s top songwriters and his team, her projects are unique and exciting. Not only does she have a critical and creative eye but she’s equally adroit at overseeing the constraints of time and money that are at the heart of bringing any project from concept to completion. And, she inspires loyalty in her vendors, maintained through her humor, honesty and precision.
