by Pat Nowak PHOTOS BY MICHAEL NEMETH When Joanna Koenigsecker was making a house change – she was thinking small. After living for years in a large home on a huge lot she wanted something manageable. She found the perfect place, which needed to be updated. With her interior design background she knew that it had huge possibilities. She enlisted Mark Cook for the major renovations and took on several of the smaller projects as an ongoing do-it-yourself venture. bluff-17-cropped   bluff-26Moving walls to make more closet space and adding designer touches— stone at the fireplace and entry hall, a pantry door that looks like a front door (with a newspaper holder and mail box) and updating the kitchen and flooring— the home took on her personal flair. All the available space is repurposed.   Using earth tones as the base, she integrated gray and lots of unique decorating elements along with artwork and floral accompaniments. Entering the home, the inviting foyer flows into a eclectic dining room and great room, culminating in a galley kitchen.
