My husband and I began building a home in Truckee, CA in the spring of 2010. Living full-time in Southern California made it hard to decorate a second home. Our architect recommended Julie and it has been one of the best decisions we made. She was wonderful! Not only did she make our decisions easier but it was so much fun working with her. I love to dabble in decorating and was able to join Julie on quite a few of the trips to make the selections for our home. She was also very proactive to resolve any problems or changes that needed to be addressed. During the construction process I saw what an amazing decorator she is and also grew to think of her as a friend.
In spring 2014, we decided to add a guesthouse to our property. In our minds there was only one designer for the job - Julie! As usual she helped us to make all the right decisions and we are extremely happy with the results. In fact, you would never know that these two projects were completed 4 years apart. The guesthouse looks like it was built and decorated the same time as the main home. Would we recommend Julie to design your home, YES, and we have many times since 2010.

Julie Johnson-Holland is talented and creative, and is a delight to work with. Her knowledge of "mountain" interior design is extensive. She listens thoughtfully to her client's wishes and ideas and creates beautiful functional spaces that are a true reflection of each unique homeowner. Julie's attention to detail and emphasis on quality made our home amazing and exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed the entire design process and are thankful for Julie's talents, positive energy and enthusiasm.

Julie is an extraordinary person and a gifted, talented interior designer! Julie created a truly magnificent home for us as she listened to our ideas, and understood our style. We love Julie’s positive, “can-do” attitude, coupled with her passion and commitment - she was a joy and pleasure to work with. We feel blessed that Julie worked her magic to create our ‘dream home’, which we enjoy every day!

We chose Julie for our Martis Camp project based on the recommendations of both our contractor and architect. They both have done many projects with Julie and highly recommended her. On our first meeting we were impressed by her commitment to help develop our vision and not just take the easier route of making the selections for us. She listened to us, and we enjoyed the interactive process.
We are so pleased with the result. The house reflects our tastes; improved and guided by Julie's expertise. The design is both unique and cohesive. There is no doubt that she saved us money as well. We would recommend her to others and would not hesitate to work with her again on future projects.

Over the last several years, we have come to know Julie and her staff…She was very helpful in understanding our tastes and budget. From her design projects we saw her design strengths and in the end we decided to build a home knowing that we had a trusted team of designers, builders and architect.
Julie and her staff helped keep us focused by understanding our tastes and budget. We were so happy with the design process of building our home, from picking fixtures and hardware to color scheme that we also had their team furnish our entire house.
Beth and I highly recommend Julie and her staff at Interior Design by Julie Johnson-Holland and thank them for a job well done.

I’ve been working with Julie Johnson since my husband and I purchased a vacation home in Mammoth over 7 years ago. Julie has a keen eye for the decorative without compromising the functional aspects of home improvements.
Decorating and caring for a 2nd home is more difficult because you’re more often than not, doing it by phone. Working with Julie allowed us to get work done on our house without us having to be there. She was able to oversee all aspects of construction and decorating and it was always exciting to see what had been completed since our last visit.
Also, having grown up in Southern California, we relied on Julie to make recommendations for both the interior and exterior of our home with regard to weather conditions and climate. Living in Newport Beach, we’ve never had to take snow or woodpeckers into consideration!
Julie is a lot of fun, and a pleasure to work with…and our results have always been perfect.
