Collaborator of the Month - Julie Hodgson

Collaborator of the Month - Julie Hodgson

Introducing our December Collaborator of the Month - Julie "Jules" Hodgson!

We feel incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to collaborate with Julie, as she offers remarkable inspiration for lovers of neutral vintage farmhouse decor. Her talent for making any item appear beautiful and cozy is truly astonishing. 

Working with her has been amazing, as she enthusiastically promotes any item in her own beautiful way. As a person not only is she talented and creative but we have found that Julie is truly kind and thoughtful.  This past year we personally experienced several highs and lows and she has always gone the extra mile to show we were in her thoughts by sending handwritten cards, of congratulations, and get well wishes, something not many people do anymore. 

You can find all of Julie's stunning styling on her Instagram, where both her followers and ourselves are in awe of her work! Discover more about Julie, shop her favorite items, and don't miss the opportunity to explore her gorgeous home and style on Instagram @thegeorgianwhitepoppy.
