Kristina Crestin Design is a full-service, residential Interior Design Firm. Founded by Kristina Crestin in 2009, Kristina and her team can be found in the heart of Manchester by the Sea, Massachusetts. Kristina has extensive knowledge of all things interior. Her passion for what she does, coupled with her engaging positive attitude, allows each of her clients to truly enjoy their unique design journey. Together, we look forward to creating your dream environment and building a relationship based on our shared inspirations and creative energy.

We understand that at the end of the day, function for your family and how you live in your new space is key. Our clients are our most important design inspiration, and we truly cannot design your space without you! During this collaborative process, we look forward to defining how you will use your home. While it can be a daunting process, we are confident that we can help you identify what you love and what you want to surround yourself with.

Our clients know they want a new look that is not only updated, but livable for their family’s busy lives. They come to us seeking an approachable designer who can guide them from concept to completion. Through the process of working together, clients learn that high quality finishes are just as important as carefully selected furnishings and accessories. And, while our clients appreciate a good deal (and come on – who doesn’t?!), they understand that their home needs quality and value in order to complete the mix.

So, have you decided to take on a renovation or something larger like new construction? Well, we’re here to help! Drop us a line and let’s get this creative endeavor going!

“Life happens in your interior. We never lose sight of that. Our job is to help you interpret what you need, discover what you want and make it all come together in a way you’ll love.”

Recognized every year for her award-winning style, and most recently as HGTV Designer of the Year, innovation is an understatement when it comes to Kristina. Her gift shines through her ability to create stunning spaces that infuse the homeowners’ style with her in-depth experience of design and architecture to reveal homes and spaces clients love.

Show Bio

Better known as just Deb, she has worked with Kristina for 6 years, and also happens to be Kristina’s Mom.

Deb takes care of just about everything in the office from people to plants to vendors to project tracking…organized is an understatement. We don’t know what we would do without our office mom.

And let’s not forget her upbeat personality and ability to always see the glass half full. She loves colors, Rock & Roll, Country music, and animals (especially her grand-dog Cooper).

Filled with energy and the perfect head tilt for photo shoots, Cooper
tags along to check out job sites, greet people when they walk in, and gives paw only to Andy the UPS guy, much to Kristina’s constant shock.


Meet Dixie, one of Kristina’s dream project come to life. Dixie, a 1955 Chevy 3100, joined the team in 2016. Looking a bit haggard, Dixie needed to shake off an old red paint job, get some mechanical upgrades and have her interior updated. It was a daunting process to bring her back to her splendor, but Dixie was worth the effort. Learn more about her story over on our blog!


We’d love to hear from you and learn more about your project.
