When Julia is not walking her terrier Rudy, cozying up with her husband Matt, or hanging out with friends, she works from her studio in Brooklyn, NY creating her signature patterns -- bold, whimsical and hand-crafted. For Julia, hygge living is about working hard and having a great time at it. An art teacher once said to her, "It seems like all you want to do is have fun." And why not? Especially when working on something fun is what makes Julia happy every day.
