Born and raised on the Naramata Bench, Julianna spent her youth in the great outdoors while cultivating her passion for art & design through travel. When Julianna turned 18, she left the small village of Naramata for the big city to pursue her Bachelor of Interior Design from Ryerson University in Toronto. Julianna has lived and worked all over Canada, from the big city of Toronto to the arctic. In Yellowknife and Iqaluit, she enjoyed learning about the challenges and uniqueness of Arctic building and design.
After spending four years in the Canadian Arctic she is thrilled to swap her parka and boots for a summer dress and flip flops and is looking forward to being part of the Okanagan design community. Julianna seeks inspiration from the local context of the building and its site thus enjoys working closely with architects/developers for a holistic design approach.
Her interiors reflect a paired down material palette which is never shy of colour. When Julianna isn’t busy designing she is downhill skiing, vintage shopping, and pairing delicious wines to her equally delicious home cooked meals.
