Julie Youngblade
Owner
"I understand that renovating or refreshing your home can be overwhelming. Starting with an intentional plan and breaking it down step-by-step is what I do best."

JY Design, based in Urbandale and Ankeny, primarily works with homeowners and business owners on interior and exterior design projects in central Iowa. Julie Youngblade has been in the interior design field since 2004 and opened JY Design in 2009. With a BA in Design, her passion is problem solving and crafting great design that matches up with the sensibility of the client's design style. New construction, remodels, or just a room re-fresh, JY Design is about creating comfortable spaces and lasting value. In May of 2015, we opened a showroom in Urbandale, The Design Place, and by appointment, will work with clients to create beautiful furnishings and selections.
