Julie's focus is on turning your ideas and thoughts into a beautiful home and ensuring that you enjoy the process

'After fifty years in property development I have never met anyone who could tune into not only what we wanted to achieve, but take many of my scribblings and turn them into features far beyond what I anticipated.'

Julie Ann Canal

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. It is your home, your dream home, perhaps the last home that you want to build.

You want to get it right.


The questions are always, where do you start, who do you trust with your nest egg and will we get what we want?

Julie is fully aware of your worries and works together with you from day one answering any questions that you may have.


She 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. 


Clients and co-worker have constantly exclaimed 'how do you do that?'. Well, she just does, it's her gift that she loves to share with clients.

Julie understands the importance of design and building relationships, she hopes that you do too. 

"Julie is with us every step of the process and offers help above and beyond."
