Raves & Reviews

Always Stays Within My Budget And Comes Up With Beautiful Selections

 

“Julie has worked on several projects for me. It started out with pillows and art for my family room in a previous home, continued with a gut rehab on a rental house followed by a complete rehab on my current house.

When I was refacing the fireplace in my rental home I told her what I thought I wanted and not only did she provide me samples of what I had asked for but she selected a completely different style of stacked stone and of course I loved what she selected even better. I remember thinking why did I even bother, Julie always comes up with better options. She also selected all paint colors, light fixtures and all options for my powder room conversion to a 3/4 bathroom.

With my current home she once again selected all my light fixtures, paint colors, cabinets, counters tops, backsplash, furniture, complete powder room overhaul and my motorized blinds. The blinds were important because I have an Apple Home Kit smart home, she researched and found two options that were compatible with my system.

The best part is she always stays within my budget and comes up with beautiful selections, left on my own I’d spend too much and it wouldn’t look half as good. And I don’t need to do all the running around either. She is worth every penny!”

It Puts The Model Home To Shame

 

“Julie Ahearn has been working with me on various design projects, large and small, for over 4 years. It started when we were having a new home built in Portland, Oregon, and Julie helped us long distance to make design selections from the builder’s showroom.

Not only did we love the results but so did our Arbor Homes sales reps; when they came by for a tour, they said it puts the model home to shame! We then had Julie come out to guide us in accessorizing the entire home. Again, we were so thrilled with the results and with the compliments we received from everyone who entered our home, that we asked Julie to return to help redecorate our master bedroom!

I never hesitate to call Julie whenever I need design advice. She helps me make design selections quickly, which has eliminated the purchasing hesitations and second-guessing that has always burdened me in the past. I love Julie for her professionalism, creativity and ease to work with. She has turned what used to be a grueling process into a fun experience. Anyone looking for someone to have fun with, to learn from, and who will work within your budget and style, Julie is that designer!”

I Received So Many Compliments!

 

“Julie makes my home look like me! She quickly learned what my tastes are, and accessorized my home with pieces I love! She has an eye for what works and knows where to find unique pieces. At my last dinner party, I received so many compliments. Julie also helped me choose the perfect paint color for my kitchen. On my own, it has taken me 5 times to get it right! Working with Julie has saved me time and money. I highly recommend working with Ooh La La Decor!”

    Lead Designer For US Vets Volunteer Project In Phoenix

     
    Lead Designer on US Vets common areas IDS/ART Volunteer Project in Phoenix in May 2017. These areas were devoid of any furnishings that would make the space feel more like a home or a space anyone would want to just hang out in. Through fundraising efforts and generous donations from many companies, Julie was able to make a decorating plan for these areas and transformed them from industrial looking bare boned rooms into welcoming, colorful rooms.
