He opened his practice in Lake Forest, Illinois in 1929.  Known for designing elegant country homes which reflected traditional design, Cerny was adept at introducing style that would make each home unique.  He pulled from many periods including Art Deco, and classical design.

Another home designed by Cerny, this charming house in the Norman French style built in Raleigh, North Carolina was designed for Truman and Annie Laurie Williams in 1938.

They are both so beautiful, aren’t they?
