My career in the design field started in the late 90’s. My experience in high end floral design soon shifted to showroom staging in Dallas, TX. Currently, my business in the Upstate of South Carolina includes residential design, retail merchandising, and real estate staging. I have always been passionate about helping clients understand what they want, creating a look that will reflect their personalities and staying in budget!
A common problem in the design field is what I call “budget blurring”. If you are considering a design project, you’ve probably heard the scary stories–they are usually similar. You hire a designer you trust. The designer sees something that will be “just perfect for your home…just too good to pass up.” The problem is, the designer finds all the “right” things and your budget has to rise to fit the occasion. This is where I work differently. It is possible to find the perfect things for your home AND stay within your budget. Once we agree on a proposal, the price we agree on will be the price of the project. No more budget blurring!
Whether you are staging a home to sell, needing a showroom reset, or you need a change in your home decor, I can help. No matter the scope of the project, I would love to bring your vision and ideals into a new space for you!
After almost three years of living in our house, it finally feels like home. Julia has an amazing ability to assess not only personality and style but also to merge hopes and desires of both mine and my husband’s–all while using both “old” and new items in the space.
She exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable with our new space. Julia was able to take pieces that had meaning to us, and use them in special ways. Now, we feel right at home!
Julia understands color, pattern and cohesion in a way this accountant and engineer will never be able to do. She listened closely to our thoughts and offered suggestions that never would have occurred to us. Julia got to know us on a personal level and brought that knowledge out in the most thoughtful ways through her design.
We are thrilled with the outcome of our design, and are amazed at how it truly reflects our family and home. Throughout the process, Julia made herself readily available to answer questions, concerns, talk through processes, and share her joy in designing our space. She truly captured MORE than we could have imagined!
Julia does a wonderful job in identifying a client’s taste and style and incorporating that into any work she does for you. The end result is a masterful culmination of what she envisions as a professional designer, and the look and feel desired by the client. She stays focused, on task, and delivers on her promises. We love how our new house has become a cozy, cheery, welcoming home that we will enjoy for many years.
From the first moment we met Julia we felt an instant connection with her. She was warm and welcoming, unlike any other designer we had met. We are over the moon excited about our new dining space. Julia created the most cozy and elegant space for us to entertain when needed, but most of all, just enjoy family time together.
We couldn’t be happier with the final results. Everything is so warm and inviting and our friends and family have raved over the final outcome. We would definitely recommend Julia to anyone.
I am amazed at the transformation she so skillfully made. My dining room is the conversation piece that everyone wants to talk about when they enter the house and I give all the credit to Julia.
Julia visited our home and walked through each room asking questions, getting a sense of what my husband and I liked and didn’t like. The transformation was amazing! Julia listened to what we wanted and was able to bring our vision to life! We love our new home and would recommend Julia to anyone looking for a refresh or total update!
We have lived in our house for five years and have two main living spaces connected together. We struggled to come up with a layout or look that we liked. Julia came in and brought the vision we needed. Our downstairs finally feels like home, and we are amazed at how she was able to take existing furniture, some new pieces, and color to make it like new!
From the very beginning of our first meeting, Julia demonstrated organization, problem-solving skills, and attainable timelines. She is gifted at finding what matters to you and making the area work for your benefit while demonstrating her talented design style. Her friendly personality is simply the icing on the cake.
Working with Julia and her team to transform our office was incredibly easy. Julia assured me that she would gain an understanding of our team culture, design something that reflected our culture, and put everything together with minimal interruptions. We have very high expectations for work to be done with excellence, and Julia exceeded those expectations!
