Epitome of Professional Designer. Working with Julia on multiple medical offices was an AMAZING experience that has put our healthcare clinics at the forefront of our industry. Julia’s ability to comprehend my wishes, incorporate tasteful design, furnishings, and functionality made for a seamless process. Her attention to detail and the overall value provided makes me think of my favorite quote, and to recommend her talent and ability to anyone looking for commercial or residential interior design. “The bitterness of poor quality long outlasts the sweetness of low price.” -Benjamin Franklin. It was worth every penny to hire Julia’s firm.

Julia is the ultimate professional. She keeps her appointments and gives you all the time you need to make decisions that you must live with. She is flexible and does not try to force her opinion but takes time to listen and then picks out items she feels will meet your desires. If there is any problem, she sticks with it until it is resolved to your satisfaction. That is very unusual today. We have used her services twice and we are more pleased the second time. Highly recommend.

Julia Childs and Megan Hunter are fabulous. As our home was being built and long before it was finished, these design professionals engaged deeply in reviewing and assisting with basic structure issues. They did not wait to pick out colors and such. Their services were not to put on the final touches, rather to consider all the aspects of the home from early stages to completion. Their interior design choices were excellent but they provided much more. You can’t find anyone more talented or committed to a fine and pleasing environment. And they are practical and pleasant. Use them.
Working with Julia helped make building our home a fun experience. She brought discipline and rationality to what otherwise would have been a harrowing experience of trying to figure out all the complexities of homebuilding. Her familiarity with just about every sub-contractor & supplier in the area was of immense value and made what would have been a drab exercise in vetting into an exciting adventure of working with the very best. We are thrilled with our finished home and, looking back, don’t believe that we could have done it without Julia and her team.

I would like to say that my husband & I have gone to the St. George Parade of Homes for over 20 years.
The last few years we knew we were getting close to building our own dream home so we really paid attention to details we liked but most importantly the interior designers.
We chose Julia Childs – we worked with her from the bottom up . She helped us with our whole project & took away the stress of building . She knew our tastes from visiting with us , pinning Pinterest , & what was important to us.
She helped us choose decor that is just beautiful.
She was easy to talk to and work with and always wanting our ideas or opinions on our home .
We have been in our home for almost 3 years and have not regretted at all having Julia design our beautiful home . We highly recommend Julia Childs.

In 2019 we had decided to build a family home in St George, Utah.
Our builder, AJ Construction, had recommend Julia Childs at HUGA design to help us in accomplishing the look we wanted on the interior. We loved her design choices that have made our house a home.
Building and furnishing a home from a distance can be a challenge, then adding to that the coronavirus restrictions but Julia’s team made everything as easy as possible.
We have been so happy with Julia and her team. They did double duty when the project manager of our home passed away so unexpectedly. They jumped right in and finished all the details that were remaining.
They were always ready to address any concerns and remaining details that were needed.
Our family are so thrilled with our new family home and would highly recommend Julia’s team at Huga Home Design.

From January 2018 to June 2019, we purchased a lot in the Reserve gated community of the Entrada Development and contracted for the design and construction of a new home. We had the good fortune of having Julia Childs (“Julia”) as our interior designer (“designer”). She combines an artistic touch with competent management. Among the traits qualifying her as an outstanding designer, all of which we experienced, are the following:
1. She is well-organized, having taken over a business that was chaotic and turned it into a well-appointed, attractive venue in which to conduct home design decisions.
2. She was always well-prepared to focus our attention on a narrowed set of alternatives.
3. She was well-versed with the Reserve construction guidelines and could readily advise us of designs that did not qualify.
4. She was always at the time and place she committed to be.
5. She was always pleasant with vendors, contractors, suppliers, and us.
6. She was always readily responsive to our questions and concerns by phone, text, email, or meetings when necessary.
7. She was sensitive to our general preferences and helped us channel those preferences for an attractive and efficient result. Hers was an uncanny ability to anticipate our decorative design choices.
8. She was on-site on numerous occasions including planning sessions with plumber, electrician, painter, and media provider.
9. She was instrumental in choosing exterior colors and textures including stucco, metal trim, natural stonework, and lighting.
10. She brought original ideas to the fireplace surround tile and metal hearth, countertops, tile flooring, closet systems, bedroom carpet, and fixtures.
11. She directed the design of 5 sliding glass doors and window coverings resulting in a genuine “patio home” in which the outdoors can be literally invited in.
In summary, having now lived in it over a year, we are delighted with our “Julia-designed home”. We enthusiastically endorse Julia to design a new home or redesign an existing one.

My husband and I had the privilege of working with Julia on our home that we built in 2018. Not only was Julia instrumental in helping us put together our dream home, but she also become a dear friend to us in the process. She was wonderful in bringing us together on choices that my husband and I where able to come to an agreement and ended up both loving it. I would highly recommend using Julia in delivering an environment that you will enjoy forever.
We recently completed our home, this adventure lasted a little over a year and Julia and her team, were able to turn our vague ideas and concepts into a truly beautiful home. Working with Julia was great, she has an immense network of supporters and suppliers. From start to finish, floors to furniture and much more. Her and the team spent what I am sure was several hours searching for items to make each room our own. Julia’s vast experience showed many times as she was able to fine and supply that perfect item, again and again. We would highly recommend Julia for any project you may be considering.
James & Karen Rawlinson
I worked with Megan Hunter for the majority of our first new home build. Working with the blank slate of a new home was overwhelming at times. Megan helped me identify my style, and then drew upon her own experience with design
and materials to help make selections. Megan was spot-on in her advice and suggestions. She has a great working relationships with so many vendors, all of whom provided outstanding work and customer service. The entire Huga design studio staff are so pleasant and personable. If I ever have the opportunity to design a home interior again, Huga Home Design will be my first phone call.
What a wonderful experience working with Megan! She is always creative, helpful and extremely knowledgeable.
Megan took charge of our projects and never missed a deadline. She was always thinking ahead as to room design, colors wallpapers, and furniture layouts.
We loved Megans’ designs so much that we asked her to help us with decorating for Christmas. It was absolutely beautiful, so many nice compliments!
Bob & Wendy Bowers
Working with Megan on the design of our home was not only enjoyable, but more importantly, it was reassuring. From her organizational skills to sweating the details and serving as a liaison to various sub-contractors, Megan kept our project on course. Beyond making the ten thousand decisions and choices organized and manageable, one of her most important skills was really listening to and understanding our style and vision and offering options that accomplished our objectives while staying within our budget. We love our dream home and feel fortunate to have had the overall experience be a positive one–in very large part due to Megan and HüGA Home Design. We highly recommend them.
