Jan Niels is the only Austin, Texas-based interior designer who is experienced in creating customized, one-of-a kind luxury design projects for high profile clients nationwide.
Jan’s focus for over 25 years has been to design luxurious and unique homes, estates, villas, condos and show properties for Fortune 500 company CEOs, oil industry executives, financial industry leaders, doctors, surgeons and other successful professionals. She is a customization specialist, and each of her projects is an “original,” meticulously and lavishly styled to meet the wants and needs of her clients.
“Each client is so different, and their residences should reflect that,” Jan says. “I purposely avoid a ‘signature style,’ and customize everything: from entryways to finishes to light fixtures to bedroom sconces. I don’t duplicate the products I use for different properties.”
Her commitment to customization begins before the construction does. She spends hours reviewing the blueprints with her clients to assure that everything from the electrical outlets to the kitchen layout are configured to meet their needs.
Jan is a home building expert who advocates for her clients in a variety of ways. She is able to study floor plans to improve living spaces, better utilizing square feet and adding functionality to spaces. She has an amazing ability to visualize and communicate her ideas and details to builders, architects and clients. With her degree in Interior design and Architectural studies, from the University of Texas, she has greatly increased the value of her client’s homes.
Jan, the only Austin designer who owns a furniture and accessories retail store, offers a full spectrum of interior design services, from project management and space planning to furniture and flooring selection. She has access to resources around the world, and calls on her vast network of vendors and suppliers to provide special finishes, customized furniture, rare flooring materials and other elegant touches to accommodate her clientele. She attends markets often, staying inspired, collecting and sharing latest and best trends in the industry.
She is backed by a team of some of the state’s most distinguished architects, builders, artisans, kitchen and bath specialists, and other innovative professionals. Fusing the best of her inspirations and experiences, Jan earns a reputation for her creative vision and artistic intellect to design from blueprint to bed sheets.
Jan has developed long term relationships with many of her 2500 clients over the years, partly by providing continuing design services that enable those clients to maintain their luxury lifestyles. Her ongoing services range from wedding and other event planning at the house to holiday decorating and season updates.
Jan, who is active in a wide variety of charitable organizations, was named one of Texas’ most influential women in business by the Austin Business Journal. She belongs to several industry organizations, including the American Society of Interior Designers, the National Home Builders Assn. and the National Home Furnishings Assn., Best Practices Network-an exclusive, nationwide group of Interior Design entrepreneurs improving the design profession as a whole.
