Why the name soda?
So this is always a good question! The name SODA is BUBBLY – a little reflection of Christie’s personality… and FRESH reflects her design style and what her client’s seek. Living in beautiful sunny Queensland often calls for a nice refreshing BUBBLY beverage – a commonality shared with both Christie and her clients!
