There's plenty of room to rub elbows with guests—at least for one night. "We like to entertain more than we like to have people over for extended stays," Julie says. She can seat up to ten guests at the 1940s-era Robsjohn-Gibbings table from Donzella. Julie placed two Japanese black lacquered vases on the console.

While Julie's house was strongly influenced by her fashion sensibility, designing her home has affected her clothing line, too. "In some ways, home design is way ahead of fashion," she explains. The shift to softer neutrals, she says, happened in home fabrics before clothing, and she's now taking those shades and textures back to her fashion studio.
