Julea’s Philosophy

I am the new generation of designer. A designer that doesn't tell you to toss all your belongings to the curb, or you need to shop couture to make your home fabulous. I’ll reinvent your space with a fresh new arrangement of your things, source new pieces at my favorite shopping haunts, and if your need more -have just the right people to paint, paper, sew, redo, refinish or renovate your space.  

Whether you need a whole home redo, or just a bit of home botox…let me reinvent your space and give your tired home a lift!


No matter what chapter your are in within your home, I’m your interior design partner. Whether you are moving up, down, out, or something in-between - I’ll make the most of your home.

In 'off' time, you'll find Julea continually re-styling something in her house, heading to any garden center “just look at” seasonal plants, thinking that she may need one more chicken in her coop (yes, she has chickens), or cruising on-line airfare rates to plot a weekend trip to Florida.
