For Julie Overton, combining a formal interior design education with with over 25 years experience, creating is a way of life. Julie has made a career out of giving stylish relevance to antiquated finds and using them to create comfortable livable spaces with character. This has come to define her signature sophisticated country style. From the rustic warmth of “True Blue” to the clean simplicity of “Modern Country,” she listens and works closely with her clients to develop a unique personalized farmhouse inspired look.
“I don’t believe in dictating the style of a room. The final product should always reflect the personality of the homeowner. This is why I always start with meaningful existing pieces like artwork, a treasured heirloom, a collection, family portraits, or even a comfortable old chair. It’s easy to fill a space with beautiful new things but at the end of the project the client has to live there. Keeping it personal is a must.”
Home and Holiday Staging:
No job is too small and staging your beautiful home for the holidays doesn’t have to be expensive. Julie is happy to rework a bookcase, stage a holiday table, or enhance an entire room.
One Day Decorating:
Sometimes a room just needs a simple makeover. Julie and her associates can give a room an entirely fresh new look in as little as one day. Depending on our clients needs, we will work with existing pieces, rework a floor plan, edit and change out accessories, lighting, paint, as well as hard and soft goods. This is a great way to quickly and affordably prepare your home for the holidays and other special occasions.
With a network of contractors, fabricators, and resources Julie can offer unlimited home decorating and design services.
