Julie Muscato

Julie Muscato, Principal Designer

Julie’s journey to interior design is one that is unique. It began when she entered her second year of college at Cazenovia College. As a fashion design major, Julie felt pulled toward the vast world of creativity that interior design had to offer. Transferring to Buffalo State College, Julie knew in her heart that interior design is where she was meant to be. After freelancing for a few years, Julie left the industry to devote her focus to raising her children. In 2010, Julie reentered the world of design, launching her business out of Lockport Professional Park. Soon after in 2012, she began her journey in her first brick and mortar location settled on Main Street in the heart of Lockport. Julie was graciously welcomed into the Lockport community and received overwhelming support, leading to her outgrowing the space. The expansion and birth of Julie Muscato Home and Julie Muscato Gifts came to fruition in 2017, both nestled into Main Street. But Julie’s success didn’t stop there. In July of 2021, she expanded yet again to her current space at 1 Walnut Street, offering up the opportunity to merge both the home and gift space to create Julie Muscato Home | Gifts. What started as an interior design firm, has come to encompass an exclusive lifestyle store. Voted Best Home Décor for two consecutive years by Buffalo Spree, Julie is proud to call Lockport her home.

Julie takes pride in every project that she is entrusted with. She describes herself as eclectic, giving her the ability to design any space, from modern, to traditional, to contemporary. While she is able to design with any style, a more traditional feel is what makes her heart skip a beat. Julie has a love and deep appreciation for a traditional space adorned with antiques.

She is truly honored and delighted to make your space a reality.


Kathy Dixon

Kathleen Dixon, Junior Designer

Kathy has always had a passion for design in all forms and has been saying she has found her dream job ever since coming aboard in April 2021. She loves working with clients with different design styles, but it’s the challenge of designing their space that really excites her. Once inspiration hits, whether it’s from something the client already has, or whatever it may be, it’s game on! Kathy can appreciate all design styles, but her personal favorite (at the moment), is “rustic luxe.” Mixed metals, gorgeous textures, and natural elements all come into play for her look. In the end, it’s all about the client and helping them achieve the look and feel that they want for their home. For her, there’s nothing more satisfying than to see the client get excited about what has been designed for them!
