Julie picked the furnishings for her home the way she hopes women buy her clothes—not just for one season, but for many seasons. "There's a definite practicality to how I design," she says. "I ask, 'Would a woman wear that fabric? How would it drape? Can she live in it?'"

The fabric and furniture choices for the house were made with similar questions in mind. "Each piece of furniture functions in real life," Julie says. "We want to have the kids in the living room, and our dog climbs the couch."

The branch-shaped, porcelain Rococo candlestick is by designer Ted Muehling.
