Very professional and easy to work with. Bartush Design solved some major design problems with my total remodel of my 1978 house. Stairs, rooflines, baths, kitchen and bedrooms reconfigured amazingly. In addition, product and material consultation was excellent. The process was painless and the results were outstanding.

Bridging a homeowner’s functional needs with beauty and comfort is my priority. As the catalyst that brings the varied pieces to order, I recognize that each person has a unique aesthetic and an individual lifestyle. The end product is a reflection of the people and things that occupy a space while serving functionality and bringing into being a consistent whole.
Bartush Design is an award-winning Austin based residential architecture and design firm specializing in kitchen and bathroom design. Its principal, Rose Bartush, received a Masters degree in Architecture from Tulane University and began her career in New Orleans, LA, mastering the artful precision and balance of the traditional style. Relocating to Austin afforded her the opportunity to apply these grounded traditional disciplines to contemporary and transitional design, yielding a portfolio of artisan designs reflective of today’s lifestyle.
Flowing from room to room and inside out, home renovation is a reflection
of how a homeowner wants to live. Within well-lit rooms, clean lines and personal touches of warmth converge.
It's an interesting challenge to redefine a space and the transformation that occurs is always a controlled surprise. Because this end result is so opposite from its inception, it's hard to imagine what once was.
Have you envisioned your metamorphosis?
Rose has an amazing ability to listen to a homeowner and give them an even better version of what they asked for. — ALICE WALKER
Through my own passion for cooking, I’ve developed a heightened awareness of kitchen functionality.
As the heart of the home, the kitchen is where people gather and sustenance lives. A well-thought-out design can bring ease of movement, inspiration and encourage an open exchange; while other rooms benefit from a reverence for solitude and privacy. Often homeowners jokingly refer to a second master vanity as a marriage saver. But beneath the humor lies a bit of truth. Whether it be a second vanity bowl, an enclosed toilet room, or a separate master closet, each of these elements has the potential to change lives. And yes, at times will even allow you to love your significant other that much more. I suppose what it all boils down to is that as humans, we all need a space to call our own.
The design that Rose came up with was truly awesome. She was able to use light and space and color in a way that is nothing short of magical. I absolutely LOVE our space! She also helped us select colors and surfaces, which made everything work even better. — ROB BUFORD
Rose was invaluable to us. She is both creative and pragmatic – and we called upon both of those gifts often, as we prioritized our design “wish list” and developed a floor plan that worked best for our family. — KELLY AND ALLISON DWYER
Space planning is always part of the home design process, no matter the scope. After collecting and sifting through the network of requirements and personal tastes, I identify the common threads and organize the sum of parts. The culmination is functional harmony, distinctive beauty and an enhanced lifestyle.
Home owners know what speaks to them but often have difficulty piecing together the elements into something visually cohesive. Together we create a spark that brings ideas to order and spaces that serve you well for a lifetime.
