I had the pleasure of experiencing the magical world of Julie Neill Designs while in New Orleans over the past two weeks installing the Southern Style now Showhouse and attending the festivities.
Julie is a lighting designer with a beautiful showroom located on Magazine Street in New Orleans or Nola as the locals call it. I have been a fan of her work for many years. Julie is known for creating beautiful traditional beaded chandeliers similar to what you see above. However, my visit proved this designer is much more than a one-trick pony. Julie can design lighting your heart desires. One visit to her website reveals some of the many styles of lighting she designs and creates, but when it comes to Julie, the sky is the limit as far as design goes. She has created lighting for the famous Brennan's Restaurant in New Orleans, as well as many other places that would surprise you. Her latest venture into plaster has my design wheels spinning. Here is the Diego Chandelier she created for Melanie Turner, designer the foyer in the Atlanta Home and Lifestyles "Southeastern Showhouse" in Atlanta, Georgia in May where I was also a designer.
