Julie loves helping clients design their dream home. Here is what a few have to say
When we made the decision to retire and move to the Bradenton, FL area, we reviewed several websites for an interior decorator who would have ideas along the same lines as ours. We found that to be Julie Martelo. As we were buying our home “sight unseen” we invited her over for a buyer’s walk-through in mid-December 2014. Julie was enthusiastic about being able to utilize the furniture that we would be bringing with us and having the opportunity to embellish the home with additional furnishings/artwork/draperies/accent painting to establish a simple “coastal” look. Upon occupancy in January 2015, she immediately coordinated our rooms plus went in search of those pieces necessary to bring our home together. Her guidance was truly insightful after getting to know our tastes and budgetary considerations. It was a great relief to us that she knew the local stores and their offerings because we, being new to the area, had no knowledge of where to find anything. Many e-mails (with photos) and phone calls were exchanged going through the process. Julie wishes to make sure you are satisfied with her selections before they are purchased. Some elements obviously took longer than others, but after three months we together had assembled a very comfortable “coastal” style home. Julie even helped with selections of lanai furniture and seating colors/arrangements.
In testament to her professionalism, recent visitors have commented upon how our home looks like a “show” home. Our realtor has also noted how the decoration effort has substantially increased the value of our dwelling. For this we are very thankful.
So it is without reservation that we recommend Julie Martelo to assist with your decoration or remodeling projects. What a pleasure it was to work with her.Brian & Neda Harrison
At the risk of sounding overly fervent, I place my redesign experience at the top of some of my most memorable, enjoyable experiences. A beautiful home is not just a dream – it’s an element to emotional well-being. I love the colors, the lighting, the furniture placement – everything. I intend to tell every woman I know to hire Julie to redesign their homes!Patti P.
We hired Julie to help with the Interior Design of our new home. My wife and I know what we like but didn’t know how to get to where we needed to be. Julie came in and took time understanding our style preferences. She not only helped with colors but shopped for all our art and accessories and her choices were right on and we were pleased with her frugal purchases. She completed the job in a reasonable amount of time and were were thrilled with the results. I would highly recommend Julie for all your design services.Drew Hnat
I have worked with Julie for over five years and highly recommend her. Julie has staged my empty listings and gone into my fully-furnished listings and re-arranged, decluttered and suggested ideas like paint, landscaping, etc. Every time it has made a world of difference. Sellers don’t want to listen to their Real Estate agent but they will listen to a professional stager. Julie is a professional and very good at what she does.Betsie T.
