He aims to design spaces that excite clients aesthetically and that they enjoy living in. He works closely with each client, overseeing every aspect of the project to achieve an impeccable result.

 His are fresh, modern, crisp, yet soft; elegant and restrained, yet comfortable. They combine old and new elements. They are noted for their sightlines--arrangements of architectural details and objects in rhythmic progressions. His interiors are a soothing antidote to the visual bombardment and clamor of everyday life.

 Art impacts space; a space impacts how art is seen. A trained design artist with an expertise in contemporary art and photography, Christopher Boutlier is skilled at pairing art and interiors.
