Designer Profile

Your home is the ultimate expression of your life's experience and it is constantly evolving. As different stages in our lives present different design challenges we strive to create a personal environment that reflects each client's background, interests and taste. Your vision, defined.

More than thirty years of experience in the Bay Area and southern California provides an intimate knowledge of the best of California's design resources. Extensive travel has broadened a network of trade resources in the United States and abroad and establishes a geographic reference when working with clients who are new to the area.

Broad experience in the design industry includes numerous residential projects in northern and southern California as well as residences in Maryland, Virginia, Washington D.C., and Florida. Law offices, corporate headquarters, the conversion of a Victorian home into corporate space and a financial institution are among past commercial projects.

Principal Connie Snyder began her design studies at the University of Washington and holds a degree in Interior Architecture from California College of the Arts, San Francisco. She completed her ASID apprenticeship in the Interior Design Department of Gumps, San Francisco and established her design firm in 1976. A life-long resident of the Bay Area, she established offices in Los Angeles for six years where she broadened her knowledge of southern California resources.
