Christine Hoffman is a designer, stylist, and pie baker working under the title “at home expert.” After 10 years of retail merchandising and owning a vintage shop, Christine left the world of retail to focus on design.

She has since worked with many home and shop owners, as a designer for HGTV, and most recently, as the designer and co-coordinator for The Creative Connection Event.

Her own homes, projects, and recipes have been featured in Country Living, Mary Janes Farm, Matthew Mead Holiday, Where Women Cook, and on the DIY network.

She spreads her love of pie baking and shares homekeeping tips, recipes, and craftiness on her blog, Pies and Aprons.

Christine loves a good celebration, so she was a natural choice to be in the book.

“Celebrations are such an essential part of life. My family has always loved any excuse to have a party, or just come together to share food and laughter.

"I wanted the house to blend with the surroundings," Christine says, "and to have some excitement too." An obsessive but fun search resulted in the perfect shade of green, Prairie Green from Ace, for the exterior. For contrast, she used dark chocolate and vanilla pain on the architectural details. The four and a half-acre property includes a granary and a red barn.
