Principal Interior Designer
Starting with one client in Westport, Connecticut, Julie Holzman founded Holzman Interiors in January of 1991 and incorporated it in 1993. Soon after, a friend gave her the opportunity to do her kitchen in Darien. Within no time, she was working on 7 homes on that street alone. Shortly after, she added a college graduate in design and a bookkeeper to the team. Holzman Interiors was on a roll.
Julie started her career in Fashion and Fashion Design but went in a new direction after her third child was born. Julie went back to school for Interior Design while simultaneously raising a family and apprenticing for an ASID professional. Her taste has evolved from the traditional environment where she lived and worked in Westport, Connecticut to a more transitional /contemporary taste level after moving to New York City. Cleaner lines began emerging in the design world several years ago and most clients want them incorporated into their spaces. A trip to Vietnam opened a new door in her aesthetic sensibility. Hanoi is a center for contemporary art and the contrasting absence and heavy use of color there helped her create a more minimalist approach to design.
"I purchased an apartment in Manhattan and hired Julie to design it floor to ceiling. The job involved moving walls, adding custom built-ins and closets, redoing all the lighting, upgrading the kitchen, adding a wet bar in addition to selecting all the furniture, rugs window treatments and bedding. The apartment was transformed from a stark white box to a beautiful, warm, comfortable and very stylish home. Julie has an exceptional talent and was a pleasure to work with…I highly recommend Julie"
"Holzman Interiors was hired for a complete bathroom renovation and upgrade. From the beginning Julie was on task, making insightful recommendations, adhering to the agreed schedule and most especially the budget. Julie’s ability to deliver ideas and recommendations in a speedy and efficient manner was invaluable. A minute was never wasted!"
"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”. Julie is deeply experienced and also easy-going and easy to work with...Working with Julie was FUN."
"Julie has helped me with a variety of projects in my apartment (lighting, shelving) and is now helping me renovate my kitchen. She has excellent taste, a great attitude and a no-nonsense approach. The people she works with (contractors, etc.) are all top-notch. Not a lot of drama here–Julie just takes care of business quickly and efficiently."
