About Julie Byrne

Julie Byrne, Birmingham, MI interior designer, sole proprietor of Julie Byrne Interiors, has more than two decades of interior design experience that covers a broad spectrum of design projects.  Ranging from small commercial endeavors to residential renovations and new home construction in the metro Detroit area, she guides clients from initial blueprints to the final finishing touches. 


A graduate cum laude of Albion College, Julie earned her Bachelor of Arts degree with a concentration in Printmaking.  Following that degree, Julie received a Masters of Fine Arts from both Wayne State University and the Cranbrook Academy of Art, where her exposure to architecture and interiors of renowned designers and artists broadened her personal approach and design aesthetics.


At Julie Byrne Interiors, Julie works in a variety of design styles, which allows her to meet a range of client needs, interests, and budgets.  Julie is committed to giving her clients a “teamwork” approach in all phases of the design process, which fosters collaboration and communication among the various trades, working to achieve the highest quality and satisfaction for her customers.  She prides herself on seeing her jobs through to their completion, whether it is designing a new home entirely, re-doing a single area, or just assisting with color schemes to refresh an older space.  She is able to make use of a client’s existing pieces that she then updates—or relocates—to combine with new furnishings she selects at a good value.


Julie’s success as an interior designer is a result of her working closely with her clients in a partnership to translate their concerns, understand their interests, determine a working budget, and establish a time frame to create beautiful and functional spaces they will love and appreciate. Her hands-on attitude often creates lasting friendships with clients, who contact her for repeat business—whether it be for a vacation home or second residence.  Julie’s attention to detail, artistic eye, keen color sense enable her to offer thoughtful solutions to both small and large projects.  Often her clients will call her to simply ask for entertaining advice on table setting or decor when hosting a dinner party.


Julie is honored to be involved with the following local charities: Christ Child Society, Variety, the Children’s Charity,  and Cornerstone Schools.  She is a longtime resident of Birmingham, where she resides with her husband and enjoys gardening, golf, paddle tennis in her spare time, and daily walks with her dog, Murphy.
