Julie Stryker, Corley Design Associates [http: /davidcorley.com/] CultureMap: You and Dawn Bergan recently took over the business of David Corley, one Dallas’ great designers. How has that been? Julie Stryker: We’ve never been so scared and excited at the same time. Transitioning from employee to boss is a mental challenge. CM: When you started at David Corley 17 years ago, what was the style? JS: Lots of Country French with blue and yellow or terracotta. When I see those houses now, I realize how David had a way of making interiors timeless! CM: What exciting things can we expect of you this year? JS: There’s a great house in Fort Worth with a lot of purple! And a ranch in West Texas, a log home in Aspen and a Turtle Creek penthouse. CM: What are constants in your design schemes? JS: We love the Cameron Collection library lounge chair [http://cameroncollection.com/index.php/upholstery/library-lounge-chair.html] and the Christian Liaigre club chair — both pieces can fit any style of room. CM: How has the Design District changed? JS: It’s a lot friendlier neighborhood now with people out walking dogs and places for coffee [http://dallas.culturemap.com/guide/restaurants/ascension/]. Some people are worried about it staying the same; I think it’s all for the good. Someday the world’s great designers will come to Dallas to shop.
