The interior designer and popular TV presenter took time out at the recent Homebuilding and Renovating Show to explain her signature decorating style.
“My signature style is very relaxed,” Julia says. “I’ve spent many years in the industry and gone round and round in terms of the trends, colours and that sort of thing.
“These days I am very anti-colour, which, I know, is quite controversial, but I would say I'm all about neutrals.
“I’m all about texture. Creating a contemporary rustic look is my style - combining natural textures, natural wood, leather with warm luxurious wool and sheepskin to create something that is really lovely and warm and cosy to live in.
“Lighting is key – that is absolutely everything. At the top of my list when creating a scheme is making sure the lighting is just right.”
