The Vision Of

The Design

The Julia features art installations throughout the hotel starting in the lobby and following you to your room. Each piece of art has a message to be seen and interpreted. A big inspiration for The Julia Hotel is the Mother of Miami. Julia Tuttle was an American businesswoman who is widely responsible for the land that Miami, Florida was built. A shell-encrusted bust of Julia Tuttle herself, by Florida artist; Victoria Kerala adorns the reception desk. The property steps back in time to grand old Miami and feels as if you are entering into the private property of the proclaimed Miami founder.

In the lobby, mysterious paint dipped Tuttle family portrait gallery illustrates a surreal portrait of an imagined Grande Dame of Miami, to the collection of mid-century art in the feature staircase. The Julia Hotel incorporates the rich history of Miami in a modern and intriguing way.
The storytelling continues in the guest rooms with paper cutouts in the style of Matisse, by Canadian artist, Edward Bader, featuring faceless vacationers floating in serene pools of color. The five featured two story Ibis rooms each have different installations in their twenty-foot tall ceilings. One room creates a swarm of Miami blue butterflies by Kiyoto paper artist Yumiko, and another features parasols dreamily floating away on an imagined Miami tropical breeze.

The rooms are a place for you to escape and dream. A place for you to brainstorm and create. Venture out and find inspiration in Miami.
