Review

"We hired Khristian because we desired some outsider thinking when we were evaluating our fiber color bank. Khristian provided current insights from fashion and interior design that we used as guidance in making some color decisions. She is inspiring and a delightful collaborator!" - "Pamela Rainey, ASID, IIDA, Creative & Thought Leader in Performance Flooring, Patcraft, a division of Shaw Flooring"

"Khristian is a fantastic artist to work with! She is highly creative and very insightful. In an industry where it's not always easy to find originality, her work is truly fresh, unique, and trend-right! Her business mindset makes her an art director's dream. . . . so thorough and a pleasure to work with!" - "Kaitlyn Deasy, Art Director, Enchante Accessories"

"I am writing to express my deep appreciation for the professional and well-informed work of Khristian A. Howell. I have had the pleasure of working with her throughout the years but most recently in my role as a Lead Designer at one of the US's most well-known outdoor brands. Khristian has always brought a great sense of color and trend direction to her work. She has a great eye for detail as well as pushing the boundaries, especially in color and pattern forecasting. She brings the right amount of classic appeal and mixes it with a modern edginess to present a fresh approach to color andpattern. Khristian's ability to execute a vision that is well-curated, rich in expression, and thought-provoking is like no other I have worked with. She is a stand-out professional in her industry and I am very excited to see her work expressed in the form of a book. . . . I can't wait to get my hands on it." - "Rachel Asimakopoulos, Designer/Art Director"

"Khristian's fun, fearless approach to design inspires us to not only celebrate color, but to celebrate it with confidence. She thoughtfully coaches those who love color, trends, and decorating, but would also be a trusty guide to help the perfect palette or aesthetic come together along the way. Khristian's color and pattern expertise, combined with her commitment to approachable design, are a reminder to embrace the bold and fill our homes with livable, lovable style." - "Allison Maze, Digital Home Editor, bhg.com"

"Beautiful products for stylish living is the best way I could describe Khristian and her designs. She creates unique, beautiful patterns and combines them with bold, on-trend color in a manner that is so effortlessly chic. . . . She is a true master of her craft." - "Kate Murray, Art Director, Blend Fabrics"

"I have been fortunate enough to feature Khristian Howell on my morning show several times. Khristian's knowledge of color and design is tremendous. Even more impressive is her ability to make it approachable and easy to understand! For someone like me who is terrified of color and patterns, Khristian made it simple and fun to bring brightness into my life! She is personable, passionate, and as bright as the colors she brings to life; viewers adore her--as do I!" - "Melody Mendez, Anchor, FOX 32 Chicago"

"Khristian has been a joy to work with over the last few years and is always quick to respond to our many (and, most of the time, super-last-minute!) requests for content: ) If we ever need some good decorating tips or color suggestions, she is a great one to call! Thanks for everything, Khristian, and best of luck with your book!!" - "Natalie McIlwain, Editor, Better Homes & Gardens"

She is extremely gifted in colors, always on the frontline in trends, and understands what her clients are looking for. She not only knows art/design, but she also understands the business aspect of it. Lastly, she is very easy to work with and a very motivated artist." - "Peter Cho, Founder/CEO, Anthology Fabrics Inc"
