Welcome To Christi Tasker!
Top Miami Interior Designers
It’s very nice to e-meet you! I’m Christi Tasker.
Thanks for finding my fashion boutique and home decor store. Since 1999, I’ve designed everything from home interiors to branding & marketing design for the world’s greatest interior designers & artisans. You know how they say, “what goes around comes around?” Life has encompassed everything I’ve ever done into this one thing – DESIGN THAT INSPIRES. I’ve designed luxury residential estates, experiential marketing venues, & hundreds of commercial and hospitality projects.
Before becoming the Top Miami Interior Designers, at age 8, I began designing jewelry out of old blue jeans. My mom was a painter, and each of my childhood weekends was spent being her cashier at craft shows. I would sneak off to visit the other crafty neighbors during my breaks. I quickly picked up on their trades and began my own jewelry business. My fishing tackle box was converted into a bead box with other jewelry-making items. Old jeans quickly became the base for earrings.
Since then, I’ve owned a physical gift store, an interior design firm coupled with a two digital technology firms, an art mentorship program, and a Miami Wynwood Arts District Venue. My Miami design firm can transform your home, hotel, store, or restaurant or create an amazing experiential marketing event.
During the pandemic, I quit selling my designs to major brands and fashion houses to start my brand CHRISTI TASKER MIAMI online to deliver beautiful products for you and your home. Browsing my cool conversational jewelry or home decor gifts will make you smile. From the first pair of pearl toilet paper earrings to anything else in my online gift boutique, it can all be beautifully wrapped and shipped globally.
I hope you enjoy shopping at my store, curated with my exclusive paintings, jewelry designs, and amazing one-of-a-kind vintage finds from my interior design client’s Miami and Palm Beach estates.
If you haven’t already, Join Rockstar Rewards, and you’ll receive an invitation to attend online VIP trunk shows where I tell you all about the items here. Many come with a story that goes far beyond the product description.

To keep you from really wondering
Let's get this flashback party started...
I grew up with two entrepreneurs and a banker grandmother that thought being an entrepreneur meant “you can’t get a job”.
In 1990, I won a Best of Atlanta Modeling Scholarship to John Casablancas and shortly began modeling for Elite New York modeling the first ever clothing line for L.A. Gear
I played basketball but hated to run in practice. I still save my energy for the championship plays. Why waste energy practicing when you can just plan for the perfect shot? JK.
At age 14, I begged my way to work at the most famous clothing store in the mall. Remember IOU? Merry Go Round? Well, I worked at DJs for three years during High School. I became assistant manager then was recruited by County Seat the Jean Store.
During my senior year of High School, I conceptualized the “Red Neck Float,” complete with a bucking bull for homecoming because the other floats were too boring and didn’t have entertainment.
stay at home turned business owner
How I became a commercial real estate developer, interior designer & product sourcer
About six months into the interior design business, I began sourcing products using internet technology & the telephone. The City of Suwanee refused to renew our home-based business license. We had too much traffic for a home-based business.
With my online and by-phone wholesale sourcing abilities we began using her driveway as a receiving warehouse. Shortly after that, the City of Suwanee refused to renew our business license citing us with too much traffic coming and going for a home-based business.
My mom and I won a lot of interior design awards including Best of Atlanta, ELLE DECOR A-List, Gwinnett Magazine, & More.
Our store received the ARTS Award in 2009 & 2010 for Best Home Accents Store.
Engaged & wrote first book
Macy and I adopted Traveling Poodle from the Sahara Ave. Mc Donald’s parking lot.
Engaged in 2011 in a castle on a Dominican Republic mountain top.
Wrote the book Power of Pinterest & became NBC News Social Media correspondent for small businesses.
Casa Wynwood & Wynwood Lab Opens
CASA Wynwood, our experiential marketing venue located in the heart of Wynwood Arts District Miami, opened in December 2015 with ELLE DECOR as the first magazine sponsor. We showcased the TOTO Neorest smart toilet, Snaidero Italian kitchens, & some of the most famous artist’s work and mentorship vlogs worldwide.
Spent 6 weeks in Asia
While traveling globally in 2020, I realized the pandemic was a PLANdemic. So I started PatriotsPerspective.com to share facts that my friends at mainstream media were not allowed to report.
We kept promising to visit the digital media agency school that we mentored and helped start in the Philippines. In early January 2020, we knew the pandemic risks being aired about Wuhan but decided to go anyway.
Yep! I'm a bicentennial babe
Growing up with two Korean War cousins, I love being the boss, riding horses, cows & four-wheelers, the smell of rice, anything sweet to eat. Just don’t ask me to share anything but social media posts & good stories. Sharing candy and food was never my strong suit. Read my mom’s story of me & the EXaLax.
In 1995, I was working at First National Bank of Gainesville as a commercial teller and was married, not barefoot and pregnant with this little grinning baby girl.
Nine months after I gave birth, I was bored and losing my mind staying at home, so I went back to work at the bank as a two-day-a-week commercial drive-through teller.
About 12 months after working two days a week, I was approved for two days of unpaid vacation for a family trip to Disney World. Two days before the trip I was told they revoked the vacation time, but I went anyway. Fired for insubordination, my mother got her wish – I joined her in her interior design business.
Our Suwanee, Georgia store was so successful, we almost opened a location at Yacht Haven Grande in Charlotte Amali, USVI.
Between 2008-2012, I was pitching softwares and technology to almost every VC in Silicon Valley.
Divorced & moved to Las Vegas
Sometimes life throws us a lemon, it’s up to us to decide if we suck it, squeeze it or make lemonade or lemontinis. In my case, I moved from Atlanta to Las Vegas. Shortly after I re-started my entire life and took my design skills from interior design to digital design.
Mr. & Mrs. Tasker
Boyd and I married on a little hidden beach in the Dominican Republic.
Shortly after I started our branding, PR and advertising Tasker Agency.
Shortly after visiting the Wynwood Arts District in Miami, I flew to New York with the idea to start Wynwood Lab and Casa Wynwood. I left with multiple sponsors and the brands quickly became a global household name even though I didn’t know what either would become.
Moved to Miami
Moved to Brickell
Officially quit selling my product designs to major manufacturers and started CHRISTITASKER.com
Started my name brand website
After losing our lease on CASA Wynwood, we relocated to downtown Miami in the area called Brickell.
