Jules Wilson | Modern Design Rooted in History

With 26 years of experience in the design industry, Jules Wilson is nationally recognized as a designer who delivers tailored spaces that enhance and elevate the user experience. After earning her BFA in interior design from the Design Institute of San Diego, Jules studied at the prestigious Lorenzo Di Medici in Florence, Italy and continued to travel extensively throughout Europe, finding inspiration in fine art history and architecture, editorial photography, high fashion and classic films. She is influenced by the greats and conceptualizes designs in a way that will similarly stand the test of time. 

After founding her eponymous design studio in 2005, Jules has quickly become an expert that developers, owners and brands trust to create timeless, meaningful and memorable guest experiences, nationwide.

In this Fireside Chat™, Jules shares her story of growing up in Rockford, Illinois, playing with Lego and already designing her dream home from a very young age. She shares about her time in Florence, Italy and how this deeply influenced her design philosophy. She discusses her design process, and how she likes to immerse herself in the local life and culture to create spaces that blend in with the community in which they’re built. When she’s not designing her next project, you can find Jules restoring her midcentury home, designed by Frederick Liebhardt, apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright. She discusses her design plans for the home, which include indoor and outdoor spaces that integrate seamlessly with one another.
