Christine Lucky Bazylevsky knew from an early age that she was meant to design the interiors of a home. Born in Southern New Jersey, Christine attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, and then worked in Manhattan's textile industry for several years, learning to work with Italian fabrics. Her first project was a loft on Mercer Street in Soho in 1998, where she learned how to mix antiques like salvaged stained glass Church windows with modern industrial fixtures for a classic yet functional look.
Christine's next few projects revolved around renovating and redesigning suburban homes, starting with an 1890's carriage house in Bedford, NY. She stripped the structure down to the barn beams, and gut renovated the entire home herself, from plumbing to kitchen design, lighting to landscaping. A buyer came by who bought the home with every piece of furniture, window treatment and china intact, and soon thereafter, Christine started her first company, Hannah Peter Designs in 2001. She went on to design homes for herself and clients in Greenwich, CT, and Purchase, Rye, Scarsdale and Sleepy Hollow, NY, followed by several homes in Manhattan. She and her family then moved to Malibu, CA, where she designed one beach home, and then worked on another project in Calabasas, CA.
Christine recently moved back to the Upper East Side of Manhattan with her husband and girls in the fall of 2014. She wanted to start a new company, Christine Lucky Interiors, that reflected many of the fresh insights she gathered from her time on the West Coast. Her favorite looks involve a mash-up of vintage furnishings with a modern and minimalist look, but she is comfortable working in virtually any style of design depending on her clients' interests and needs.
