“Julian produced a comprehensive timeline of tasks and we checked the boxes together. It was incredibly helpful, not to mention soothing, to be presented with 2-3 options and just make decisions from an already curated list. A huge part of that was Julian understanding my taste and aesthetics and finding vendors and styling that followed suit.”
