After working in Washington DC and New York City, Julie returned home to Louisville and continued her design career at Bittners.


In 2001, she went out on her own and started Feather Your Nest. Together, she and her husband Clyde built high-end spec homes for several years. 


Later she opened BlueJ Designs, primarily focusing on helping clients tackle the often overwhelming project of building their own home.


With her experience and knowledge of architecture, building, and design she helps her clients through the entire process: From coming up with a floor plan that fits the family’s lifestyle, to working with builders and suppliers and taking trips to design centers to purchase furnishings, Julie will be right by your side from start to finish making building your home a pleasure.
