Building Designer Perth

The Design Mill is headed by hands-on award-winning designer Julie Ann Canal.


Julie knows that it can be very daunting designing and building your new home or renovations. It is your home, your dream home.

Design is crucial, it is the fundamental aspect of any new home or renovation. When designing many important aspects are taken into account; the flow and connectivity between areas, external and internal appearance,  light and ventilation, but more importantly, the comfort for you and your family to live in and enjoy.


Your home governs and aids your lifestyle, how you interact with each other and how you entertain. At the Design Mill, we don't just design homes, we design lifestyles.

Julie has a special ability, a gift of being able to 'tune in' to your ideas, understand the plethora of pictures, the scribbles and thoughts you have, and turn them into more than you ever thought possible. 


Your home also needs to be adaptable for future family changes or unplanned circumstances.

Design is of paramount importance to Julie and The Design Mill. Design mistakes are extremely difficult and expensive to correct when your home is built.

It is therefore so important to gain valuable advice BEFORE you build.
