More about éLAN Creative & the Owner / Principal Designer, Julie Rodriguez
We know design can change people’s lives. We’ve seen it ourselves with client after client. We design through the lens of how it will be to live in the space and what’s needed to make that the best experience it can be mentally, emotionally, and physically. Our service offerings are designed to help our clients meet their design needs on a ‘deeper level.’ Regardless of the project, we bring our depth and breadth of design experience and knowledge, as well as our unique focus on design for optimal functionality and wellness.
From owning and operating her own window treatment fabrication business at 23 years old, to working with dozens of high-end furnishings brands on the vendor side, to heading up a corporate kitchen and bath design team, Julie Rodriquez has a remarkable depth of knowledge and breadth of experience.
After founding éLAN Creative in 2009, Julie has innovated standard design processes, developing intimate relationships with clients in order to gain a unique perspective about individual needs, styles, and tastes. She is committed to designing functional solutions to enhance and improve her clients’ quality of life, work, and home by creating and building innovative atmospheres that inspire creativity, promote well-being, and improve productivity. For the last two decades, Julie has worked to create a portfolio that speaks for itself, each project timeless, tailored, and uniquely personal to the client.
