Hi, I'm Christen Paige Mills!

For me, design has been a lifelong journey.  My passion and talent for the art of design had me sketching, painting, drawing and creating all kinds of projects from a very early age.  It was only natural, that I earned my Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts with an emphasis in Interior Design from San Diego State University.  My design experience there after encompassed working for local firms in San Diego on a spectrum of marketing, graphic design, and residential interior design projects.  After establishing a solid foundation through work experience, I created Cpm Studio in 2013.  During years of focusing my business on interior design and color consulting, I discovered the need for offering  


After living in Mission Hills for over 12 years, I still get excited about going out to my studio space, flicking on the lights, filling up my cavalier's water bowl and turning on some tunes...what was once a run down old garage, and for a short period of time my husbands "Man Cave" was quickly transformed when my business was off and running!  There is something wonderful about a space designated just for the creative soul to grow.  It's always fun to have visitors stop by and neighbors popping in to say Hello!


Gaines provides extra creative support and loves being out in the studio and laying in the sun!
