Community Highlights: Meet Danny Russo of Daniel Russo Home

Today we’d like to introduce you to Danny Russo. 

Hi Danny, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
Danny Russo started his design career in 2003 but he will tell you that it all started in the 7th grade while taking a mechanical drafting class. Danny has worked his way up through the industry and is now nationally known. 

A social media influencer, Russo is part of the first all-digital generation of designers and is well-versed in today’s design technology and applications. He understands the balance between incorporating upcoming trends and a timeless perspective throughout all his designs—from space planning and lighting selection to material usage and variety. Russo’s compositions strike the perfect chord: his work is just enough risky and just enough safe to stand the test of time while remaining both fresh, bespoke, and innovative. 

Based in Columbus, Ohio, Russo is a member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and the National Kitch and Bath Association (NKBA) and brings more than 20 years of experience to each of his projects. His designs have been published in numerous print publications and his work has been exhibited at the Columbus Museum of Art and the Columbus Center for Science and Technology. Russo is also a regular contributor to regional TV programs. He is a featured designer on the newly-launched network, Home Design Television. 

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
There is no such thing as a smooth ride in the design world. Whether it’s a recession or a pandemic, something is always put before us to overcome. What a wild few years it has been. 

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Daniel Russo Home?
Danny Russo and his sought-after team at Daniel Russo Home have secured the trust and loyalty of clients around the country by prioritizing their needs, translating their lifestyles into designs, and involving them in every step of his creative process. Russo’s award-winning work reflects his philosophy that “anyone can design a space, but only a designer can make a space magical.” 

Russo achieves his goal of creating cohesive environments with synergy and flow—not spaces in which one piece or room outshines the rest—by approaching his design projects from a holistic point of view. “If done well,” says Russo, “design should evoke emotion. As designers, part of our job is to tell a story, creating unifying spaces that reflect and accommodate each unique personality and lifestyle.” 

Do you have any memories from childhood that you can share with us?
Hanging out with my grandparents and summers with friends.
