Extraordinary in every way! Exceptional designs that stand the test of time – on time, on budget, ALWAYS! I have worked with Cathy on three “whole house” projects and continue to be amazed by her creativity, intuitiveness and professionalism. Cathy is brilliant – intellectually and emotionally. She creates a home that interprets the style and personality of her client. She understands the historical, aesthetic, and architectural context of her interior design – and what a difference it makes. Cathy has amazing attention to detail. In a recent new construction project, she guided us through every stage – even down to the placement of electrical outlets. Cathy is a dream come true for the crazy busy client. She is efficient without compromising individuality and quality. Nothing cookie-cutter emerges from her workroom. To partner with Cathy is a true gift. Our family will be ever grateful.

We were basically starting from zero when we first worked with Catherine M. Austin Interior Design – we had very little furniture, has just moved from a tiny NYC apartment to a house in Nashville, and needed major help! She created a plan for our house that we loved and started us on a path of both beautiful and practical family living. We started working with her over 10 years ago and daily enjoy the rooms she created for us. We have even moved and have easily transferred the pieces and rooms she created. She was especially great at taking the little tidbits of my style and translating them into a plan that reflects our personality and her fabulous talents. She is an art aficionado and is gifted at incorporating it; she is incredibly efficient; and she pours her passion and amazing energy into every project!

We have used Catherine M. Austin Interior Design for our home in Charlotte. NC and again with our recent move to Mountain Brook, Alabama. She paid so much attention to every detail involved in both of these projects. Catherine is so easy to work designed our home to fit my family’s life style. She was able to use all of my decor in my new home from the previous house and her design reflects who I am which is so important. We are approaching the next phase of decorating and I am looking forward to working with her again!

Cathy Austin provided my design consultation for a total remodel of our old historic mountain home . She was invaluable with her practical decision making and time consciousness..She helped me inventory all my furnishings which was so important with all our belongings in storage for over a year. She is extremely organized and always met her deadlines and budget. Cathy is a true student of design and is a real researcher and writer. She works well with her clients and shares her many talents with our community at large. I highly recommend her and look forward to working with her again in the future.
