Julie VanderArk: Designer/Holland Manager
Inspired design ~ inspired space..... this is how I think of my design style. "Hearing" what you need and desire, then creating a well-designed space that reflects your individual style, while maintaining budget and providing excellent service to make the process a rewarding experience. My background started with a strong interest/obsession with Architecture and moved in to interior space planning. This avenue has provided me a more creative element and balances well with the kitchen and bath segment of design. I enjoy my crazy family, which include 3 children, 1 grandson, 2 pug dogs, a good game of golf and cooking.......I am always cooking something!! Contact Julie at: juliev@straightlinekitchens.com
