Bailey Austin

After graduating from Oklahoma State University with a bachelor’s degree in architecture, Austin worked for the renowned Pelli Clarke Pelli architectural firm in both the New York and Connecticut offices. She, along with fellow designer Mel Bean, founded Austin Bean in 2012, and the firm has quickly garnered attention for its casual, modern aesthetic that layers sophisticated finishes and functional details. “I prefer to design the entire house,” says Austin, “from the ground up to finishing with accessories on the coffee table. I love getting to know my clients and being able to provide that service.”
