Based in Phoenix, AZ, C. Stark Design Inc. has worked with many homeowners to help create living spaces that are a personal reflection of their own unique style. Listening to each individual’s needs and providing an environment that they are comfortable calling home, is done in the most creative and effective manner. Each project is tailored to the specific needs of the individual client. From small remodels, to the design and furnishing of an entire home, concept to completion, no project is too small… or too large.

“We have achieved our goal of a comfortable and warm feeling home. We could not have done it without Cathy’s talent and guidance.
From Start to finish, Cathy remained attentive to the project and our needs.”
