The great room feels like a warm embrace, as it is filled with light, natural earthy colors and materials that are sustainable and simple to maintain. The splash of red adds interest and delight and the kitchen is designed to suit the homeowner’s avid cooking skills.

Food storage and the ease of accessing the cooking utensils were a prime focus in the kitchen design.

The beautiful fire place gives warmth and comfort and serves as a supplemental heating element as well.

Clean and simple lines dominate the bath room designs. The master bath receives its touch of elegance with a band of glass tiles and a warm colored Silestone counter.

The bed rooms are comfortable and well sized to accommodate guests and the master bed room also incorporates a separate sitting area for comfort and privacy The high ceiling give the rooms air and light.

Functional design elements improve daily tasks, adding to the overall sense comfort and ease to the house.

Classic and elegant design elements define the look of the house, adding to the overall sense of uniqueness and style.

Stefani Conniff was my architect when we renovated my house in a major way in 2011-12. Her design was outstanding for which I am grateful for. I love my kitchen the most. I cook a lot and enjoy it a lot. I would recommend her with all my confidence. You can come to my home and see her work. John Alpay
