Get To Know Us



Beyond The Mill Interior Design is a full service residential design firm located in Clifton, VA. — servicing the greater Washington, DC & Northern, VA areas. Owned by, Principal Designer, Julie Davis-Gerard. Julie is an allied member of the ASID, the American Society of Interior Designers, and has been featured in multiple publications.

From the day Julie decided to close her retail business and focus solely on interior design, she knew it would not only elevate her life and those she works with, but it could help magnify the potential of each and every client she encounters. As a company, Beyond the Mill Interior Design believes in honing their craft — as designers — and collaborating with the best architects, builders, tradesmen, and suppliers who understand quality as well as communication. This allows for successful relationships all the way through, and at Beyond The Mill Interior Design, we believe these philosophies make us not only better designers, but result in incredible working partnerships!

Since launching her custom furniture & interior design career in 1990, Julie has accumulated extensive working knowledge from customized furniture, interior design, custom-built homes to remodels and every aspect in between. Her passion to understand the style of each client and the ability to weave in personal design-specific details to each project help create an inviting and comfortable space which, most importantly, feels like home. Julie designs homes with the customer in mind and would not design something that she wouldn’t do in her own home.

Julie has designed and built a 2,000 sq.ft. office & working design center to feature vignettes with furniture, lighting, rugs, accessories and gift items. This space even showcases a customized kitchen and bathroom to exhibit the quality and style her company offers to each client — large or small. In addition to this work space, Julie has designed over 100 homes/spaces and maintained many relationships with clients that keep them returning for Julie’s design expertise.

Let Julie and her team help with your design needs and ensure it’s – YOUR HOME. YOUR STYLE. YOUR WAY.
