Julie comes from a design background of high-end residential design and Model Homes. She was a project manager for several years at a model home firm prior to launching her own business. She graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree from Interior Designer’s Institute, located in Newport Beach, in 2004. In 2009, Julie launched an online design boutique called Modern Chic Home and recently closed its doors, allowing her to spend more time with her son as a new mommy and focus on growing her design business.
Julie was born and raised in southern California, which she credits as a major influence on her approach to design. Her design philosophy has always been to create an environment that reflects her client’s personal taste and style, achieving a look that is both beautiful and livable.
In her free time, Julie loves spending time with her husband Ryan and their son who's almost one year old. She resides in Orange County, CA and enjoys trips to the beach, cooking dinner for family and friends, catching up over wine with her best girlfriends and volunteering at her church.
