Hi, I’m Julie.

Welcome to my happy place.

A Lifestyle Guide to Designing, Styling and Living Well - JuliePedraza.com

Throughout this lifestyle guide, I share simple ideas for designing, styling and living well. For me, that’s a decluttered home with Palo Santo in the air. It’s a minimal collection of easygoing clothes. And it’s a whole foods diet and sweating every damn day.

I also journal the ebb and flow of my healing from childhood trauma. It gets raw, but baring my soul is medicine. For those who share a similar experience, I feel you. You’re in a safe space with me.

Today, I’m an easygoing mom, partner and comfort-glutton homebody. I used to be a burn-the-candle-at-both-ends talk radio host and interior stylist. The universe has a way of guiding you exactly where you’re meant to be. I’m glad it guided you here. Thanks for reading and welcome to the huddle. —xo
