Christine Austin believes that this is the Trinity of a well-designed Interior. Our spaces should engage us visually, emotionally and physically. Nowhere is this more important than in our own homes.
A certified (NCIDQ) and award winning Interior Designer, Christine Austin has been helping clients realize their dream homes for over two decades. After attaining her Degree from Ryerson University's acclaimed Interior Design program, Christine first established herself in Toronto designing homes in the prestigious Bridal Path and Forest Hill areas with Gluckstein Design Planning. In 1991, Christine moved to Vancouver and focused on Designing Custom Kitchens and Baths working with a number of the prominent Cabinet houses creating Dream Kitchens all over North America.
Also a gourmet cook, Christine takes a "mise en place" approach, knowing that the design is in the details, and proper planning is the recipe for success. Christine has a knack for creating classic interiors balancing comfort and beauty. By creating a timeless "foundation" in her designs, it is easy enough to personalize the space with accessories and furnishings as needed to evolve with the client's tastes presently and over time to bring them joy for years to come.
Christine's clients glowingly report on how approaching a project with a complete and professional plan creates a very enjoyable construction experience, reducing expensive surprises and construction time. If "everything is in place" then it is just a matter of putting it all together.
