Hi, I'm Julie, Chief Executive Empress of my little apple green design studio.

When I'm not out visiting a client or searching for just the right  product for a project, I can probably be found in my happy little studio (painted the perfect shade of green), busy drawing up new ideas for a cool kitchen or a "spa-licious" bathroom.

Have you decorated your Christmas tree yet? Mine’s not up, but there's still a little time, right?!

Well here it is. Thanksgiving is less than a week away, and I’ve put off writing about last minute holiday centerpieces as long as I can. Oh, the irony, but I’m sure my procrastination will lend this little post that all-important tone of authenticity. Not to mention panic!
