After getting her BA in Fine Arts from Vanderbilt University, Betsy studied Design at O'More College of Design. In 1986 she joined Annali Interiors where she works with clients who are building homes, doing renovations, or just refreshing rooms.

Julia Jarman

Interior Designer

With almost 40 years of experience, Julia believes the key to great design is capturing the spirit of the client and the essence of the space. She works on the assumption that when a job is successful the space is comfortable- both visually and physically.
