In 2008, Juli pioneered the idea of in-home color consultations for the D/FW area. Since establishing her practice as a color consultant, she has specified colors for homes, apartments, and residences of every style – from 1800’s historic properties to 20s Tudors, mid-century, modern farmhouse, and new construction. She has also assisted hundreds of customers in selecting tile, countertops, wood flooring and other materials.
Juli began her career as a custom matcher and consultant for a major paint corporation. Here she learned to match “by eye”, before the advent of computer color-scanning tools. Seven years of hands-on experience in the paint world provided her with a solid understanding of pigments and coatings. Later, she further expanded her knowledge through the study of color science with famed strategist, Lori Sawaya.
Color science is a system of measuring the specific attributes of a color, such as its Light Reflectance Value (how light or dark), its Chroma (how bold vs. how grayed down) and its Hue Angle (its color family). This gives consultants an objective basis on which to evaluate a color, instead of relying on subjective opinions or confusing advice from décor sites on the web. Science can also offer a shortcut to finding an altered version of a color you are viewing – for example, one that’s slightly redder or grayer or less intense – without having to comb through endless paint chips.
In 2010, Juli was featured in a full-page article in the Dallas Morning News. She has been named Best of Houzz and won the Angies List Super Service award multiple years, and maintains a 5-star rating on both sites, as well as on Yelp.
She is also a member of the Inter-Society Color Council.
Just wanted you to know that we LOVE the choices you made for us. We have finished Phase I of our remodel and now are in the midst of Phase II. The peace of mind knowing we have selected the right colors is invaluable.

Thank you so much, Juli! It was a pleasure meeting you and working with you. I am sure I will be reaching out to you on future projects...greatly appreciate your help & guidance!
Juli, it was such a pleasure working with you yesterday. I feel inspired and motivated to move forward with my living room now!
I am so thankful you came out to help me this week. We have been on hold from painting the exterior for almost a year because we had no idea what color to choose. I can honestly say I am getting excited about the exterior paint job; it will give the house a much-needed makeover! -Tara, Arlington
Hi Juli - We had a lot of fun on Monday. Now that the upstairs is painted just a touch darker, we are both ready for some more dramatic color. We're going to do the Enigma, Latte, Kilim Beige combination as you suggested. You'll have to see it when it is finished. Thanks!
- Kitty & Mike, Frisco
Thanks Juli, you helped a lot! It was nice meeting you and having your expert help.
- Sue, Plano
I appreciate your great ideas. It is quite a change for me, but I started dragging in some red accents, which helped. Now I’m excited about the new look.
I was struggling to refresh my 12-year-old decor, but just couldn't get it right. Finally, I approached a trendy local designer for help. When she learned that I wasn't willing to spend thousands or purchase only from exclusive boutiques, she ditched our appointment and refused to return my calls. Desperate, I came across Juli's website and took a chance. What a great idea that turned out to be! She was very positive and down-to-earth, and her plan allowed me to use much of what I already had. Her suggestions added color, texture and balance to the space. When my family visited, everyone raved about how beautiful the house looked. I'd highly recommend her service. I got all the expertise, none of the attitude.
-Ann, East Dallas
