Julie Pawlowski- owner | artist | designer

"Creating a home that you love involves reflecting on what is important to you. Try to stay simple. Minimal is not too little- it's finding the perfect balance where everything has a purpose."

Jody - interior designer

"This isn’t Arhaus. This is YOUR house."


Heidi - interior designer | business development

"As a designer, I draw inspiration from travel and nature. Travel allows me to see the world from a different point of view…a new perspective. Nature is organic and changing every season…constantly introducing new textures and colors."

Heidi has had the opportunity to collaborate with a diverse and high profile clientele. Her career began at the esteemed Pavlik Design Team, named Interior Design’s Top 100 Giants. Heidi continued on to become Design Director at the prestigious Breakstone Homes. Her work has been featured on HGTV and Fox’s ….This Cool House, as well as being published nationally and internationally.


Annlouise - interior designer

A few words about me. When I’m in a good mood, I smile. When I’m in a bad mood, I laugh. I avoid boredom whenever possible. I love challenge, I hate beets.

Design has been instrumental in my my life. It is the fabric of my nature. From my design time in Chicago, to my days of choosing color regionally for Sherwin Williams, to construction design/management for Lowes.

I fill my days with Design, yoga and my family. I’ve found a way to incorporate my design constructs into my philosophy of living. Classic, fresh, functional and fantastic. I have a classic bend well mixed with color confidence. FORM always FOLLOWS function. Good design integrates. When you’re sitting in your room designed by MOD/Annlouise, you will smile everyday.

Neutral military muslins placed inside of wool skien (SW) walls and naturally stained acacia floors have allowed my 1930’s White brick home to shine happily as if it were well placed near Piccadilly Square. If your home needs a design schematic that flows as well as lasts due to an active family, I am up to the challenge.

What we put in our space is just as important as what we Choose to not put in our space.

From Traditional to transitional to modern, allow me to listen and make your home as special as you are.
