Julie Ann began her design career in Roseau, MN with the conceptualization of Bobby’s Interior Design in 1977. Ten years later, Julie Ann moved to Buffalo, MN and built a 20,000 square foot building which housed The Furniture Gallery and warehouse.
The Furniture Gallery was featured in “HIGHPOINTS” magazine, listed as one of the top four stores in the nation to watch as “style setters” along with Restoration Hardware.
The Furniture Gallery was the first store nationwide to host Raymond Waites, a $4.5 billion New York designer. It was here that Julie Ann became the first woman-owned Flexsteel Gallery in the nation.
Julie Ann opened Julian Home Couture in The Wayzata Village Shoppes in 1988 and Julian Design at 315 Lake Street in Wayzata, MN in 2012. Julian Design was featured in a 9 page editorial piece in “spaces” magazine.
In 2004 Julie Ann designed and built the winning home of The Midwest Home and Gardens Luxury Home tour, having over 6,000 people tour the home.
