Brocato Design + Co | Juli Brocato, Principal Designer and Founder

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 a graduate from Florida State University and spent a decade working in the Performance Arts where I lived in Los Angeles, New York City, and touring the country soaking in all the beauty that inspires many of my designs today. 


As a lifelong artist and creative to my core, I founded Brocato Design + Co. in 2015 so that I could share my passion for design by serving others with an artistic sensibility towards creating lived-in luxury in their homes. 


Creating beautiful spaces for my clients and building a business around a lifelong passion has truly been my dream job. In addition to Interior Designer, I’m the wife of a handsome Italian (who doesn’t speak a lick of Italian), a mama to 2 rambunctiously precious boys, fur mama to two adorable girls, a singer, and an avid pickle ball player!

Lauren Valentine

Administrative Assistant + Content 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.

Since the beginning of 2022, I have taken on other roles at BD+Co- client interaction, scheduling, and helping manage projects to keep the work flowing! Occasionally you’ll hear from me somewhere along the process!

My favorite part of working at BD+Co is showing the behind-the-scenes action of life at BD+Co: Real life, fun, creative, hard-working women doing what we all love!

Brocato Design + Co | Alex Jacob, Designer

Alex Jacob


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!
