Julie Glavin, Principal

Julie Glavin Design

Rooted in a contemporary model of craftsmanship for timelessness.

I’d characterize my childhood as an early tutorial in planting the big seeds for my curiosity to blossom into an absolute love of architecture and interior decorating. Wonderful exposure to art, construction sites, antiques, and to the unique homes created by my talented & energetic parents.

The freedom to traipse through woodlands and over coastal islands, gave way to plenty of self expression creating piles of rickety tree houses. All ‘deluxe’.

Roaming around as a youth across continents and seeing ‘how’ people lived, humbly and elegantly, deeply inspired the desire to create extraordinary, comforting, personal environments. So like many creative types, toddled forward through the formal study of architecture and design.

I landed in the gaming world at its genesis in Silicon Valley. The uber pacing and technical problem solving of my profession as game designer fostered my own evolution – and confidence, to create through complex design processes. A wildly intense and exciting era.

Passionate love of textiles, hand printing and designing a one-of-a-kind clothing, love how things are made… all roads harmonized into interiors. Really a true blessing to be able to connect with articulate and creative clients whom share my excitement in making their ‘house into a home’.

Julie has such a great eye and her attention to detail is stellar! My latest project that she’s helped me with is a modern beachy house and, as always, her vision really helps to achieve that goal. I’ve used her ideas for a more casual look but she is very versatile in her designs. She has a warm, fun personality and is so easy to work with.

I sought out Julie after seeing a home she remodeled. I was so impressed with her sense of style; she has original ideas that can transform a room so perfectly. Her ability to understand the space in a room and make it so inviting, comfortable and amazing are why you can trust her with your project. Her attention to detail makes all the difference, she knows what’s going on behind the walls and in the ceiling, so your project will turn out right.

I appreciated her excitement and commitment to my project. I will most definitely use her on my next remodel. I learned so much about my own style from working with Julie, she wants to know what you like and will pull together ideas to meet your style. Julie is fabulous, talented and hard working. You will love her!
