The four-level, 3,200-square-foot Russian Hill home that Julie and her husband, Scott Grigsby, purchased in 2001 is serene, cozy and—necessary for a couple with two young children, a cat and a dog—nearly indestructible. With its clean lines and sophisticated, neutral colors, the 1950s-era house has been remodeled to serve as a retreat for the family and as an inspiration for the fashion designer.
"Julie has very refined taste, and you can see it all through the house," says Greg Stewart, a principal at San Francisco's Orlando Diaz-Azcuy Design Associates, who worked with Julie and Scott as well as with the home's previous owners. "From her fashion background, she's developed a great sense of line, color, and texture."
