Influenced by heritage but rooted in functionality, interior designer Dane Austin creates a live-work space that is complex, refined, and fun. Highly functional and bursting with creativity, the entire home reflects Austin's design savvy and upbeat personality. If an interior can truly reflect its inhabitants, Austin nailed this one. Complex as it may be seem, he sums it up simply, "It's a happy place to be."
