Who We Are

Juli Brocato

Founder & Principal Designer

My name is Juli Brocato and I'm the owner and principal Designer here at Brocato Design + Co. I'm the wife of a handsome Italian (ok, he really just looks the part of his ancestors. He's straight up American but highlighting his Italian roots is far more romantic right?!), mama to 2 incredible boys who keep me on my toes, and fur mama to two adorable girls. My house and heart are full of love and chaos, so I'd say I'm pretty much an expert in creating realistic, lived-in spaces for REAL families!

I founded Brocato Design + Co. in 2015 after years of offering design consulting "just for fun." For as long as I can remember, I've been artfully creating living spaces for anyone who would let me.  Shout out to my parents who allowed ten year old Juli to paint their entire kitchen with a sponge and their bathroom with a feather duster.  Thankfully, I got that out of my system 30 years ago, and only recommend them for cleaning today!  Creating beautiful spaces for my clients and building a business around a lifelong passion has been my dream job. I pinch myself often that I get to do what I do and that my clients trust me with their precious homes. Poke around and see if my design aesthetic feels like a good fit for you! 

Lauren Valentine

Creative Content + Marketing Manager

My name is Lauren Valentine and I manage the digital content for Brocato Design + Co. I’m the gal in the background with the camera (and iPhone, and iPad…) photographing all the beautiful spaces created by the designers at BD + Co. I also oversee all of our social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Pinterest.

I absolutely love that my job is about connection and creativity. I truly enjoy capturing all parts of the design process and  showing the journey from the “before” to the “after” of a project.

My favorite part though is showing the behind-the-scenes action of life at BD+Co:

Real life, fun, creative, hard-working women doing what we all love!

Alex Jacob

Designer

My name is Alex Jacob, and I am a Junior Designer with Brocato Design + Co. I graduated with my nursing degree but creating beautiful spaces has always been my niche.

While I have loved being a nurse, the creative side of me has always been knocking on my door. Design has led me to help friends and family with their homes and allowed me to help others in a “different" way than nursing has, by creating a space that makes people happy. 

This pushed me to take the leap into classes and make a career out of design! I have found that creating interiors has fulfilled all of my passions- helping others, seeing them smile, and creating something beautiful. I can’t wait to help you love the space you’re in!

Megan Cochran

Purchasing Manager

My name is Megan and I am a proud spouse of a US Marine retired veteran and mother of five.

As Brocato Design + Co’s Purchasing Manager, I ensure the smooth operation of our client’s project milestones and deliverables. I handle client accounts, procurement, and project management. 

As a child, I loved designing my own room to the extent that my parents would ask what "theme" was my room for the day. My creative side continued as an adult as my children and I love DIY projects -- on the weekends you can find us working on a Pinterest project. 

 

Working alongside Juli and her team has been amazing! Her work resonated with me in more ways than one. Brocato Design + Co. is truly your go-to interior design pick!
