A LITTLE MORE DETAIL
We are skilled at creating beauty and function in new construction and comprehensive renovation projects—one square foot at a time.
OWNER AND PRINCIPAL DESIGNER
After earning a degree in Fashion Design at F.I.T. in New York City, Julia started her career in the sports apparel industry working for a leading global fitness apparel brand. With a full-time role came her first home purchase, a “fixer-upper” that required multiple renovations. During these projects, Julia found that creating spaces that felt both authentic and aspirational was her gift and passion.
Julia went on to earn a degree in Interior Design, while juggling motherhood and completing the design of a new home for her growing family. After multiple courses, three children, and several interim design projects, she launched her namesake studio. Today, Julia works closely with clients throughout Maryland to design homes that are best described as timeless, collected, and relaxed.
Julia enjoys being outdoors—golfing, traveling, and exploring with her husband. On any given afternoon, you might find her at home in Kent Island, sipping a spicy margarita or spending time with her three children at the beach.
We worked with Julia on a complete overhaul of our second floor. We had a wonderful relationship with Julia, who took the time to understand our functional design needs and taste. She was creative and flexible during the design stage and we really appreciated having the renderings to work from as she partnered with our contractor. Julia also has a great relationship with vendors and every choice was collaborative and curated to make our space "work" for us, while being absolutely beautiful. She was also respectful of our budget and worked hand-in-hand with our contractor and other vendors to keep the project on time. We highly recommend JLD design and absolutelylove the updates to our home-it now feels like us!
