About Me

Hey loves! I’m Julie: life-lover, adventure-seeker, basically a very curious girl by nature with a penchant for colorful storytelling. I delight in everything design and the many facets it entails: The inspiration, the research, the program, the process, the challenges, the solutions, the finale, and the reveal.

|Life is meant to inspire creativity and I'd rather be an active participant than a passive observer|

I started this blog after a brief stint on HGTV’s Design Star Season 5 competition to chronicle my search for artistic inspiration found all over the world (Read my first post HERE). From fashion, food, culture, and lifestyle, to my ultimate bread and butter- interior design and home décor; beauty can be found everywhere and I’m just having a blast taking it all in.

In addition to writing Haute Khuuture, I also run my own interior design business Julie Khuu Interior Design | JKID | from my studio in Orange County, CA. Designing everything from bars, nightclubs, hotels, commercial and retail spaces to high-end custom residential homes; peep out highlights from my online portfolio HERE.

When not designing, you can find me smothering my 2 dogs on the daily, spending countless Sundays at the flea market, and endless nights up late watching my current obsession: Korean Dramas.

|My personal mantra: MORE IS MORE!|

Hey, I’m a maximalist, what can I say?
Welcome to the world of Haute Khuuture, where high design is fashioned for everyday living.
