Welcome to the Design Studio
While other designers distinguish themselves with a signature look or a set of
recognizable design elements, we value passion over formula, believing that design
should defy convention. At the Design Studio you’ll not only be working with Boston’s
South Shore top design and build talent, but an entire team dedicated to exploring
what successful design means to you.
We love making your project come alive, uncovering architecture, design, and a style
that brings your dreams to life. Our favorite moment isn’t showing a final product to a
client, but the moment that a client shows it to the people they love. Seeing our
clients overflow with joy as they share what we’ve designed and built together.
Services We Provide

We love our clients and their exciting projects. See what they have to say!
“Julie and her team did a beautiful job designing multiple new bathrooms for our beach house in Scituate. They totally nailed the California modern style we were going for, and I was grateful she was so on top of the supply chain situation during 2021. We were ready just in time for the summer season!”
“We are pleased to provide a very positive review for the Design Studio. Judy Whalen is incredibly knowledgeable and she does exquisite work — we would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone we know. We have done several projects they continue to exceed our expectations. They are very professional, always meeting deadlines and providing excellent quality of work.”
“Working with the Design Studio I have always been impressed with the level of detail and beautiful design savvy the designers bring to our projects. The drawings and designs the Design Studio produces are beautiful, and so detail oriented. Whether we are working together on a Kitchen, Bathroom, Family Room Built-ins or Master Closet layout, I know I will be impressed with the final result, as will our mutual clients. I always look forward to working with this very talented team.”
“Julie and Bill and their team were incredible to work with on our kitchen renovation. We needed a lot of hand-holding and Julie was there at every step of the way to help us make the right decisions right down to the end when she was able to even advise on what to put in each drawer and cabinet! There was not a single detail overlooked and she was an absolute pleasure to work with. Bill and his team are expert craftsmen and truly skilled with the finishing touches on all cabinets, moldings, hardware – you name it. They were first class all the way and we couldn’t be happier with our decision to work with them.”
“Working with The Design Studio team is like having your dreams transferred into reality. This was my second adventure with Julie and Bill and their team. My first kitchen was outstanding, the envy of the neighborhood so naturally I chose them to help me bring my 1930’s house into today. This renovation was no easy feat. We thought it would be a kitchen and bathroom fix but it turned into a whole house build. In freezing cold, with raging Covid prices and product delays, the team transformed a dilapidated home into a show stopper. They listened to all our needs and were able to carve a very small, very run down house into a warm comfortable home with modern touches while paying homage to the house’s period. My next door neighbor, who designs kitchens says, “This is the best kitchen I have ever seen!” Others have stopped by to compliment us on the entire house transformation. I love my house and can’t thank The Design Studio team enough.”
“What a fabulous experience it has been to work with everyone from the Design Studio. We are so lucky that our interior decorator introduced us to Julie Lyons and her design team to aid with a kitchen and powder room remodel. From the initial visit with the designer and builder, we knew that we were in great hands. Julie presented us with an exciting and creative design that greatly exceeded our expectations. Our old kitchen and powder room presented so many challenges, but with Julie’s creativity and imagination, they were reworked into amazing spaces. The Design Studio team really listened to our needs and special requests, offering us a result that was far better than we could have imagined. We were thrilled with their ability to source amazing materials, and their extremely detail-oriented precision eliminated all potential problems. The team worked closely with us throughout the process keeping every deadline. We were so pleased with our results that we immediately requested new projects in other areas of the house. We will miss the team when our projects have all been completed because the entire staff has been a pleasure to do business with. Julie Lyons and The Design Studio are an amazingly kind, professional, and talented team!”
“We recently built a new home and chose Julie and her team at the Design Studio to partner on the design and installation of our kitchen, eat-in bar, and butler’s pantry. We chose the Design Studio because of an instant chemistry and trust in Julie. She steered us through countless decisions with a true understanding of our lifestyle, making astute recommendations and challenging certain ideas incompatible with our lifestyle. Her ideas were fresh but still practical. She also flawlessly executed on our design aesthetic, and melded traditional and modern components in a way that looks very intentional. We wish we had hired Julie to do additional spaces!”
