Julie comes from a design background of high-end residential design and Model Home merchandising. She graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree from Interior Designer’s Institute, located in Newport Beach, in 2004. From 2009 to 2012 Julie launched and successfully ran an online design boutique called Modern Chic Home. She also owned a residential design business for 5 years before transitioning back into designing and merchandising model homes for new home builders.
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 exudes both comfort and sophistication, achieving a look that is both beautiful and livable.
