WHAT CLIENTS SAY
My husband and I have been working with Julie for over 20 years. She has helped to design and furnish three of our homes - including our beach home in Florida. She listens and understands your style & taste and has always translated our vision into something beautiful and functional.
Julie and her team were clever, efficient and prompt on everything they did for our home. We had just moved in and Julie helped with everything from furniture to rugs to lamps & accessories. She also helped with our outdoor patio and pool area and everything looks beautiful - classic, yet comfortable. Which is exactly the feel we tried to achieve. They were mindful of cost and budget issues. I highly recommend them.
We hired Julie to redesign our kitchen and pantry in our home. The results were spectacular, Julie is very friendly and has a great eye for colors. She is up to speed on the latest design trends in the market. We look forward to our next project with Julie.
We have been very pleased with the quality of work we recieved from Julie and her team. We had our kitchen completely renovated as well as curtains, furniture and painting done in our living room, dining room and family rooms. We look forward to using them in the future.
Julie and her team are absolutely the best! They are so helpful from start to finish and really take their time to make sure you are 100% happy. Julie has designed several custom pieces for me and her signature style incorporated with my preferences equals exactly the look that I wanted. Thank you for everything! I would be lost without you!
Julie came highly recommended. She listened diligently to our wants and needs and based on the design it is apparent that she could see through the challenges we were facing. We were so pleased with the new design that we continued to work with her to finish our basement and other rooms in our home. Julie’s designs were organized and meticulous and each space showed detail. Moreover, we felt comfortable working with her and making decisions. Julie was conscientious of our budget, while still providing us with a quality design.

Our journey with Julie started with one room - redecorating our oddly shaped family room after several unsuccessful tries on our own. It turned out so great, we just couldn't stop there! Two years later, Julie beautifully redecorated nearly every room in our house. She has such great vision and is able to deftly balance style, elegance & comfort. Sadly, we sold our house when we relocated from VA to GA, but Julie makes 'house calls' and is coming to the rescue once again to help us make this new, but very dated, house a home!
