Dane Austin Design
Dane Austin started reading his grandmother’s design magazines at the age of seven and from then on knew that design would be his calling. Looking back on that time, he says, “Her homes were always so warm, gracious and inviting. I grew to realize that there is no greater way to affect the daily lives of others than by crafting the spaces that truly nurture us, allowing us to feel safe, comfortable and happy.”
He founded Dane Austin Design in 2009 to put into practice the philosophy he articulated so long ago. “Each project starts with a vision for the client’s home as a place where sharing their joy with others is effortless,” he explains. Gaining clients’ trust and assuring them that they’re in good hands develops with every conversation.
The firm is known for its dynamic use of color and what Austin describes as “unexpected pairings resulting in spaces that marry traditional and contemporary design.” Clients benefit from his long-standing relationships with leading architects, custom-home builders, fabricators, artisans, fine-furniture makers and other industry specialists.
“Comfort is the ultimate luxury, ” says Austin, who sees great design as the confluence of “ease of use and peace of mind. We’re simply setting the stage for a life well-lived.”
Dane Austin Design has been recognized by a number of shelter publications and professional associations, including House Beautiful (Next Wave Designer), New England Home Magazine (5 Under 40 Award), BUILD Magazine (Leading Residential Design Firm), IFDA (Charity Challenge Winner) and ASID (Excellence in Design Award).
