My new apartment underwent renovations and redecorating which included new stone tile floors, painting, window treatments, rugs, furniture. Julie's design taste and advice is impeccable. Unique to her company is her expertise in Feng Shui which adds that extra special detail to make me feel at ease and at peace in my home. Julie's communication skills are unparalleled and I was given notes on every meeting we had, every decision made and every follow-up. I still continue to work with Julie and will be sad when my projects are over as she is a pleasure with which to work and I will miss her presence. Julie was able to turn an unpleasant experience into one that was creative and fun.
The literal translation of the Chinese term is Wind (Feng) and Water (Shui), at the most basic level Feng Shui is the interaction of people and their environments.
It is often described as the Chinese art of placement. Using the principles of Feng Shui, we can arrange furnishings to create a balanced and comfortable environment, which will in turn promote a balanced life.
Feng Shui can be used to diagnose illness, be it physical, spiritual or emotional. The tenets of this ancient art are applicable to our fast-paced modern world.
Environments that are visually appealing and physically comfortable create positive energy which will support you rather than deplete you.
Whether it is directing the flow of chi through the arrangement of furnishings, design or colors, all the way through to space clearings and ritual cures; Julie and her team can help you to create the spaces that support your vision of a balanced life, rich in the areas that matter to you.
I had the pleasure of meeting Julie during my experience designing a room for the Holiday House Designer Show House December 2011. I have always been impressed with the people who take on the role of Project Manager, having to juggle multiple personalities, adhere to tight schedules, and oversee budgets and in the end, getting the job done. Julie went above and beyond fulfilling her role and getting the job done with professionalism, authority, and efficiency, all the while with grace and courtesy. Julie has raised the bar for my expectation of Project Manager. I look forward to the next opportunity that we work together again.
