She took the basic ornament, covered it in a lush fabric, sprinkled it with glitter, and topped it off with a beautifully contrasting bow. And voilà! A crowd of devoted Whitehead ornament collectors was born. To meet the growing demand for her work, Julie has just opened the doors to Whitehead Studios, just across the street from Fort Sheridan.
In her French-country inspired showroom, you’ll not only find her signature ornaments, but elegant topiaries, sophisticated pillows, hand-painted plates and glassware, and her show-stopping paintings. “I’m excited to showcase more of my pieces,” says Julie. “There’s a little something for everyone here.”
Whitehead Studios is located at 772 Sheridan Road in Highwood. The studio is open on Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and by appointment, 847-980-6373.
