Meet the Designer

Julie Shaheen

Dream. Create. Live.

“I see my self as a storyteller. Clients hire me to write their biographies but instead of words. I use fabric, furniture and architectural elements. The key is to listen to my client’s needs to create a unique and personal design by capturing the spirit of the client and the essence of the space. By understanding my client’s lifestyle, I can provide them simplicity and sophistication and true elegance.”

Jewel Marie Interiors is an experienced full-service interior design firm. Established in Northern Virginia by principal, Julie Shaheen with projects in Maryland, Virginia and DC area.

Creating and designing have been a passion throughout her life. After leaving a successful career in the technology industry, she decided to pursue her dream designing full time. Julie studied Interior Design with Rhodec International in Brighton, UK.

She has previously served on the Board and the Development Committee for the Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter (LAWS) and is a member of the Loudoun Chamber of Commerce.
