Christina Salway graduated from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts in 2003 with a bachelor’s degree focused in architecture.
She took up residence in New York City, where she cut her teeth at the renowned club-and-restaurant designing architecture firm, R.I.P. After two years with R.I.P., Christina left the firm to pursue her own work, and started an interior design company called, ElevenTwoEleven Design (named for the zip code of her home and office in the "hip and happening" Williamsburg, Brooklyn).
The company has grown steadily ever since, taking on projects of all sizes throughout the city, surrounding suburbs, and now includes projects in the Hamptons, Hudson Valley, and Catskill regions as well. Williamsburg continues to be Christina’s home base, where she lives with her husband, John, their 2 year-old, Julian, and their rescue pit-bull, William.
Her work has been featured in The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Country Living, The Design Bureau, Better Homes & Gardens; on DomaineHome, Apartment Therapy, Brooklyn Modern, Brooklyn Limestone, and numerous other design blogs. Christina is one of Zillow's in-house Home Improvement Experts, was a contestant on NBC's "American Dream Builders", made multiple appearances on The Nate Show, and was also included in Nate Berkus's latest book, "The Things That Matter".
