Julie knew when she was five years old that she wanted to be an interior designer. However, sometime life tosses you around a bit and you land doing something you’re good at and find other ways to feed your passion.
With an education in business, Julie worked in corporate leadership most of her adult life while raising two children on her own and later blending two families together.
In 2013 Julie left the corporate world to take Burlap and Crystal the firm to the next level. Burlap and Crystal Interiors is now working on both residential and commercial projects in Southern California, as well as e-design a virtual design service with clients all over the US.
“I think design should feel effortless, like the space just happened that way. My design style is California chic, it’s out of the box, eclectic, stylish and polished at the same time.”
Not only am I now able to do what I’m really passionate about but, I’m able to do it with the person who brought me into this world and the person who introduced me to the world of design. I can remember at a young age going to clients houses with my mom and being fascinated by all of it, the colors, the art, flooring, wallpaper, literally all of it. Not exactly a typical set of interests for a toddler, but I was surrounded by it constantly.
I had been craving a creative outlet that really spoke to me for years. Design hadn’t entered my mind until my mom created the Burlap & Crystal. I’d give my little bits of advice every now and again. It always made me feel so alive. I started working on my own projects; redoing furniture, tables and really anything I could get my hands on. I knew that design is what I wanted to do. Then one day my Mom asked me to join the design team. Needless to say I jumped at the opportunity. I’ve had the time to grow as an individual and develop my own taste and style.
I have an affinity for darker things, pieces that most would completely overlook. I represent the burlap, my style is a little raw, industrial, dark. I’m pretty covered in tattoos and at first glance probably look nothing like your typical designer. While my mom is the crystal, polished, neat, and a little softer. When we combine our styles you’re guaranteed to end up with a one of a kind space. Something that has never been done before!
