Julea’s Philosophy

I call myself an interior stylist; 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!


No matter what chapter your are in within your home, I’m creative home design partner. From decorating consultation, prepping a home to sell, moving up or downsizing, to styling your space for a special occasion or holiday - I’ll make the most of your home.  


    How We Work

Gone are the days when the fancy suited designer would sweep into your home declaring... Darling, everything must go!
— Julea J. Joseph

Reinventing Space lends a creative eye and hand to refresh, renew and reinvent a home with a celebrated new perspective.  Beyond a beautifully decorated and styled home, we too want you to embrace your home to its fullest, from enjoying holiday guests to barefoot entertaining in your outdoor spaces, your home is your special place in the universe.
