A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE

As owner and Creative Director at Stephanie Kraus Designs, Stephanie offers a modern, timeless take on tradition. Her dramatic interiors have been featured in several national magazines such as Philadelphia Magazine, Architectural Digest, Style at Home, Clientele Luxury, and HGTV Magazine. 

As a busy mother of three, Stephanie understands that a home must be as functional as it is beautiful. Using bold neutral patterns and exciting bursts of color, Stephanie pays close attention to detail and works closely with her clients to make sure their passions and interests are reflected throughout every space. Over 80 percent of Stephanie’s business is from repeat clients and referrals, and she has been sought after by local business owners and professionals to make their homes look luxurious yet feel relaxed and comfortable enough to entertain family and friends. 

Stephanie currently resides in Wayne, Pennsylvania with her husband, three children, and their Goldendoodle, Barkley.

Megan joined the design field in 2019 and began working for the SKD team in 2021.

When she’s not at SKD, Megan loves renovating her home and spending time at the beach/pool with her husband and two daughters.

As a creative person by nature, Aly has always been passionate about art and design. She loves the process of starting with a single concept and exploring all the different aspects of the project from functionality, to ergonomics, to aesthetics, and how they all come together into a beautiful final design. Her niche is creating detailed 3D renderings. This provides clients the ability to experience their space before it's even built, to help execute their vision. Aly believes that most beauty can be found in simplicity and that it’s the little details that can make all the difference.

When she’s not being creative, Aly enjoys going on hikes with her significant other Paul and their fur-children Cheyenne and Marley. You can also find her sipping on a spicy margarita, cooking up new recipes, visiting a national park, and in the summer months spending time at the beach.

As an interior designer, Madeline is driven by making connections, and before she’ll tell a single piece of your story through design, she’ll act like a historian, uncovering all the details and then weaving them together into something whole and beautiful.  

Some of her favorite design elements include the understated elements that are central to telling a good, inviting story: a powerful book, a cup of tea, mismatched frames, landscape photography, and a warm atmosphere that welcomes guests to come in and stay awhile. 

When not designing, Madeline can be found on long walks with her husband, trying out new restaurants, and visiting family and friends.

With a degree in Architecture and Studio Arts (and certifications in drafting and modeling programs), Bridget is a powerhouse of creativity and project management. She loves to find new ways to help clients’ spaces function, and she’s known for bringing new, out-of-the-box solutions to function and layout issues. Some of her favorite design elements include a comfortable, inviting sofa, a well-organized room, and a beautiful, thought-provoking piece of art. 

In her free time, Bridget enjoys renovating her 1950s Cape Cod home with her husband and spending time at the lake with her husband and two daughters (where they search for all the hidden beauty waiting to be discovered).
