Testimonials

Kathy Snow

Julie was referred to me by a neighbor.  She did an awesome job picking carpet, draperies, and blinds.  She took me out of my comfort zone and made me think outside the box. We love the choices presented to us. Our conversation piece in our home was her idea which is a family gallery wall. I will use her again and will recommend her to others.  Not only is she great interior designer but has become a friend as well.

Julie is Fabulous!  She took our general ideas and created something beyond anything we could have imagined.  She brought life to those concepts through her innovative design and tasteful use of multiple color pallets.  She spent hours with us at the different vendors to help us pick out the tile, countertop, vanities, plumbing fixtures, lighting and paint so that in the end it all looked like each little piece was a perfect fit in her overall design.  Julie worked exceptionally well with our contractor to execute her vision while ensuring the result was not only beautiful, but also functional and livable. She is always available to work through issues and question that arose.   We loved working with her as she helped us ever step of the way and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to our family and friends.
