Craftsman / Farmhouse,
Rustic / Southwestern,
I hired Holzman Interiors about 17 years ago when I first bought my home in New Canaan, Ct. She designed and furnished it completely with an update to the existing kitchen. It seemed only logical to call her back when we were ready to do a renovation to the kitchen. We came to her showroom which was a big help. There, you could combine all your needed selections under one roof. Julie is a remarkably talented interior designer who is a joy to work with. Her design aesthetic is absolutely superb. She is dedicated, focused, responsive and a great listen and communicator. She is an excellent partner and collaborator in projects of significance and complexity. We wouldn’t recommend or want to work with anyone else!Mar 28, 2018
Julie Holzman of Holzman Interiors designed the new kitchen in my coop apartment, built 1911, as well as two bathrooms. The results are splendid. Julie considered the character of the building, listened to my own thoughts, and designed a kitchen of elegance and gravity that looks completely "meant to be" -- and also has tons of storage space. The baths are beautiful: one is sumptuous and serene, the other is playful and delightful. Julie is deeply experienced and also easy-going and easy to work with -- never a hint of impatience even when I was looking at every white tile in NYC trying to find just the right white. Our contractor was impressed with her attention to detail and quickness in trouble-shooting. They made a great team. As for her design sensibility and taste, it is very refined; at the same time, she is open-minded. It's a winning combination. Working with Julie was FUN.Dec 4, 2015
We did a whole house renovation with Julie over the last 9 months. We have done a renovation before but not on this scale; we could not have done this without Julie and her excellent team that she brings together. She did the designs for all of the rooms and oversaw the work being done in our home. Her sense of style was excellent and she worked with us patiently until we found the right fit. She was very focused on the details (which really matters!) and she rapidly addressed any items of concern. She is organized, very responsive and extremely accessible (txt, phone, email, etc) this made the process that much easier and faster. The team of subcontractors that she brings in is top notch. We are very pleased with the outcome and look forward to continuing to work with Julie.Dec 31, 2015Verified
Julie Holzman was very attentive and always responded. Attention to detail is impressive and made sure things were done properly. Design knowledge extensive too.Jul 2, 2019
I am currently working with Julie Holzman on two bathroom renovations. I started with firm ideas about the look I wanted and Julie has helped me to achieve this, and much, much more. Her advice and expertise along the way have elevated the design in subtle but significant ways, without adding cost. My bathrooms look so much better for Julie's input. I cannot imagine going through this process without her.Mar 7, 2016
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I find that it is best to get together in person and define the project. Today, most people prefer a set fee to be paid in monthly installments. Its hard to ascertain what that fee is without seeing the space and hearing your wishlist. I do work hourly but it doesnt seem to work for most people post 2008.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When I first meet with a client, I want to make sure they feel comfortable. My client is opening their home to me and it is important that there is a high level of mutual comfort and trust. From there, I begin the process of getting a full understanding of what the clients wants and needs are for their space. It is very important for the designer to gain a full understanding on the clients needs to fully deliver optimal design.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?It is very important to take continuing education classes within this profession. Emerging technologies and changes in regulations are just a few of the things that are contributing to the evolution of design. As an ASID member, we are also required to take continuing education classes in order to keep our affiliation.
