For over 20 years Jeanette Christian has created custom interiors that are an expression of timelessness. Since its inception, Christian Design Associates’ guiding philosophy has been to provide classic designs that outlast ephemeral trends.

Jeanette Christian

Christian begins each new project with the question, “How do you want this space to feel?” And her clients appreciate the elegant, sophisticated and contemporary results. She has mastered the art of transforming large floor plans in to light and airy, yet warmly intimate spaces, working from a varied pallet of artisan-inspired and organic designs.

Christian apprenticed with legendary interior designer Joan Billings, honing her affinity for classical form under the guidance of her celebrated mentor. Now an NCIDQ (National Council for Interior Design Qualification) certified designer and a Professional Member of the ASID (American Society of Interior Designers), Christian has her own studio in Palm Desert, California where she seamlessly manages projects from concept to finishing touch, ensuring the process is as tranquil and satisfying as the outcome.


Andrea Bakel

Clients love Andrea Bakel because she is a perfectionist. “I love it when clients say, ‘everything was just perfect,’” says Bakel, project manager for the firm. She’s worked in the construction industry for over 20 years. Quality control is a big part of the job. Bakel also manages a vast library of samples and artisan resources. She has a “can do” attitude and a personality that makes everyone adore her. Originally from Colorado, Bakel has been a desert resident for over 18 years.
