A young professional couple (he a Senior Architectural Technologist and she is in marketing), approached me to help with the revamp of their newly bought home. It is a three-level apartment in Illovo, JHB.

From the outside, this apartment block had very little architectural merit but my clients could see the potential inside - they had both the knowledge and vision to see that that it could be turned into a stylish city home, plus its location in one of the city’s prestigious suburbs was great. 


Included in the brief was a request for interiors that would suit both partners. They wanted a mix of solids with pops of colour and prints in the living areas and preferred something more neutral but stylish in the main bedroom. All they brought from their previous home was the grey corner suite and raw wood coffee table.

"Even though we were involved in every step of the project, Julie’s stunning job far exceeded our expectations. We love the colours and the way they work together and has how different each bedroom is“.

House Gardener Ross Golf Estate

Featured in Homeowner Magazine Nov 2011

What my clients had to say:

Julie provided an interior design solution that was in line with our vision and enhanced our life style. 


Because you came into our lives as we were at the early stages of building the house you added enormous value when you made recommendations on the structure of the house which facilitated an even better interior design execution.


You also went above and beyond what you were "contractually" hired for when you corrected the execution of the builders in how they had not installed some of the finishes appropriately.

I must say when I talk to my friends about the project, I say that I enjoyed having a person like you to think about how everything fits together and all I can to worry about is the "colour of the fabric".

House Morningside

What my clients had to say:

Julie saved me the time and (huge) hassle factor of having to source items and deal with suppliers directly, ie your contacts and efficiency.


We loved your creative eye, ideas and vision – the perfect balance of functionality and aesthetics, on a reasonable budget."

House Kyalami

What my clients had to say:

Julie not only altered the atmosphere of our house, but her professional and personal touch made our house look like a showpiece that anyone would be proud of.  To our delight our house turned out even better than what we expected. But best of all our project came in under our budget which is rare indeed.


We had easy communication about all aspects of our design and always felt that Julie deferred to our choices. Her primary concern was always client satisfaction and she excelled at flexible, innovative problem-solving."

This apartment was decorated for a corporate rental.

What my clients had to say:

Thank you for making our home beautiful. We feel proud to have it to bring up our offspring."

What is the # 1 benefit of what I did for you? 

Amy and Stuart Harrison

Easy .... you allowed us to feel comfortable hosting people in our house again.


Geraldine Macpherson

I think your advice and guidance  has created a living environment that we love being in. Even though some of it was done some time ago, we still love it and would not change it! You have given us pleasure in our surroundings by making it all fit together in a way we never could, while retaining our  taste (so not someone else's imposed on us). And you made it soooo easy!

Julie Smith

Helping with great colour choice and making my life easy by bringing stuff to the house .

Lisa Stanley

Excellent service at really good prices (you're a pleasure to deal with, even though we can drive you mad - loads of patience!)


Janine Benard

I'd say that the convenience of you sourcing the right fabrics/colours and understanding my brief.
