After a decade working on hospitality projects at some of Chicago’s top design firms, Julie founded Avenir to be the top dog shot caller. She creates distinctively original work so her clients never have to suffer the indignity of being boring. Her work has been featured in Interior Design Magazine, CS Interiors and Boutique Design. In 2014, Boutique Design awarded Julie with the prestigious "Boutique 18," a yearly roster of on-the-rise designers of hospitality interiors. She spends her free time being beautiful. Just so you know, she has a southern accent.
Amelia started her hospitality career as a coat checker in her family’s fine dining restaurant. She has extensive experience working with top hotels to set and implement brand standards and design custom interiors. She spends her free time chasing the perfect nap, gazing into crystals and casting spells.
Adam started his career as a stage and production manager at some of Chicago’s top theatres, including the Goodman, Steppenwolf and Chicago Shakespeare. He joined Avenir after earning his MA in Interior Design. He spends his free time getting swole, sitting in lotus and enjoying being fitter than his friends.
Lisa started her career in Public Relations, where she helped clients develop communication and social media plans. Since earning her MA in Interior Design, Lisa has helped Avenir on a range of hospitality projects. She spends her free time learning about real housewives, raising her kids and admiring her mini-goldendoodle. Basically the opposite of Julie.
