Julie is incredible and has such an eye for design. We used her for an extensive remodel of our main floor/kitchen and master suite. Both myself and my husband were so pleased with her ability to work through both of our tastes, priorities, etc. She was also awesome at incorporating and repurposing our furniture into the new design while bringing new life to our space, keeping an eye on budget and timing. We will definitely be using her for future home design projects.

We are on our 3rd project with Julie and Shaping Your Space. My husband and I have very contemporary design tastes. In the past have really struggled finding a designer who "gets" our taste and doesn't try to push us toward more traditional design. Julie consistently goes WAAAAAY above and beyond to help us find the perfect design solutions for our lifestyle and contemporary home. I highly recommend her!

I hired Julie just to get some ideas for remodeling a bathroom and kitchen. I got that and much more. Julie came up with a fabulous design for those two rooms, but she also made sure that it "fit" within the context of my entire house. She provided me with enough options to be able to make a choice within the range of my "tastes," but without so many that it overwhelmed me. As a matter of fact, once the overall design was set, I came to trust her instincts so well that I eventually just left most of the details up to her! And speaking of details... She helped me to find all of the contractors I needed to do the work, which included a number of contractors that she works with on a regular basis. She also kept the contractors on schedule and was often at my house directing the work. The end result? I have two beautiful rooms that were completely remodeled under her direction, and am hiring her to complete the remodel of the remaining rooms in my house! I can't recommend her highly enough!

I hired Julie to help in the remodel of our house. We were selecting paint, flooring and furniture for the entire house and completely remodeling a kitchen and addition. She came into the project really listening to my style, wants and needs. I felt heard and understood on the "feel" I wanted for our home. She took my husband and children's needs into consideration as well. Julie guided me through every step of the process and took things off of my plate to decrease my stress level when she could sense I was getting a little overwhelmed. She was available 24/7 and never took more than a few minutes to get back to me on my various questions or concerns. All of that being said her style and selections were absolutely amazing and she was always open and honest with me about the process. The contacts she has in the community are helpful, kind and extremely knowledgable. She went to all of my selections meetings with me and never once made me feel like I was doing this alone. I, without hesitation, will be using Julie in the future for any and all of my design needs, big or small. I cannot say enough about her and her professionalism, character, understanding and design taste!

I loved working with Julie with Shaping Your Space. My husband and I decided to make our current home our forever home, and Julie was a huge part of getting that done. We did a complete kitchen, laundry room, master bathroom, kids bath, basement and office remodel. We also updated the rest of the house with furniture and accessories. She made an overwhelming project seem so manageable by introducing us to remarkable contractors, and patiently walking us through every design decision imaginable. With so many design options available, she took the time to understand our style and narrow thing down so that we got exactly what we were wanting. Always a professional, and super sweet, too. Now we can say we have a forever home, and forever designer.

Julie is amazing to work with and the results exceeded my expectations. My project included opening a wall between the living and dining rooms rebuilding a fireplace in stone, refinishing hardwood floors, repainting and furnishing the whole house, creating a firepit and patio, and creating a home theater in the basement. Julie was reliable, responsive, well organized, and punctual. Besides that she made the whole process really fun. She was primarily concerned with helping me find my own style in a result I was thrilled with. I also appreciated her help finding reliable, reasonably priced contractors. She was even more conscientious about my stated budget than I was! I cannot recommend her highly enough and will use her services again in the future.
