"Julie is outstanding! She expertly blends her expertise with the desires of her client to help make a joint vision come to life. What can be a stressful endeavor actually turned out to be pleasant and rewarding. Julie brought examples of colors, textures and fixtures for our review, making decision making effortless. She recommended a contractor who is the best I've encountered in over 25 years of working on this house. The end result was awesome and we couldn't recommend her services more highly."

"Julie was wonderful to work with. She came into a home that had been decorated 30 years before and updated the decor while being sensitive to the fact we were planning on downsizing in the near future. Julie really listened to our likes and updated the look of our home, using most of our original large pieces. Her sense of color is outstanding. Installation of carpet, painting, window treatments and bedspreads were all done and delivered when promised."

Julie is thorough and professional with exceptional style and design skills, and a keen attention to detail. She takes pains to learn the homeowners' style preferences and create a space that reflects them. Julie is also sensitive to cost, delivering the style we want within our budget. Our new home is even more fabulous than we hoped. I would highly recommend Julie Sandman without hesitation."
