Julia is an Associate at VDC and directs notable projects from Hawaii to St. Thomas with stops all along the West Coast, Austin, Eastern Seaboard and New Orleans. Julia's first degree was in economics which led to an 11-year career in the commercial lending market as a financial analyst. After obtaining a second degree in interior design, she began her hospitality career in 2009 when she joined Innvision Hospitality as a Project Manager where she held two roles – one purchasing and the other designing. Several years later Julia joined the Van Dresser Company team.
In these times, where the tone of the world is somewhat disordered … we wanted to create a design that felt energetic and hopeful. Nature, and specifically flowers, represent these sentiments. In our design, the garden fruits and florals were hand sketched by the Lebatex team, which gives the pattern a sense of authenticity and depth. The garden grows over a subtle geometric “latticework” to add a modern touch. The large-scale nature of the design is intended to provide a bold, artistic opportunity within a space – as an upholstered chaise, as drapery, or as accent pillows. We love the design printed on the textural Baldwin base because it adds to the garden’s richness - visually and to the touch.
