Who is Julia

Tuscan born, Julia has always enjoyed the art of creating and reflecting nature through painting and Interior Design.

After 10 years as a fashion designer in Rome she developed a passion for Restoration and Interior Decoration.
  She moved to Chianti where she began an eight year project managing and transforming a castle into what has become a world renowned 4 stars hotel: Castello di Spaltenna. At the same time she was very active creating collections of designs for fabrics, hand painted furniture, iron works, beside following projects of interior decoration and restoration for various clients in Italy and abroad.

As a result, Julia’s work is now featured in houses in Chianti, and locations through-out Europe, and United States. Beside “Castello di Spaltenna”, other hotels carry her work: the Grand Hotel “Burghenstock” in Switzerland, the “Silhuette Lodge” in Seychelles islands, Antico Podere Marciano, Relais del Maro and Castello del Nero.

She was given a national award ( the Mercurio d’oro) for developing her firm, the JULIA DESIGN, and making it a successful brand known also abroad. 

Several houses in Chianti and around the world carry her works of art and the exclusively custom made creations that she provides with her team of expert artisans and artists.

Julia’s hand painted fabrics and home designs have been published in numerous magazines and publications through the world:
