Julie Holland, Designer & Principal
With 20 years of experience in the fields of Construction and Design, Julie Holland has been designing and installing high-end interior cabinetry, countertops, tile, flooring and fixtures for kitchen and bath since 2008. Her work as sole owner of Stonewood Kitchen and Bath has earned her company two 2013 NARI Awards and a 2014 NARI Award for excellence in kitchen remodeling. In 2018, Stonewood was named Best of Oakland and the East Bay in the category of Kitchen Remodeller by Oakland Magazine. When she’s not at work in her showroom or out on a construction site, Julie spends her time giving back to the community, collaborating with Elevate Basketball and Training Performance and with The Ultimate Fieldhouse to create scholarships for youth basketball players. Julie herself has been the head coach of the Jr. NBA Timberwolves, a 6th-8th grade co-ed basketball team playing in Walnut Creek through the 2018 Spring season.
Veronica Herbert–Design Associate
Veronica Herbert, a graduate of Sacramento State in Interior Design and Architecture, grew up with a designer’s love of form, beauty, and function. A native of Walnut Creek, Veronica inherited her father’s love of architecture and her mother’s eye for design. When Veronica started working at Stonewood Kitchen & Bath as an intern, Stonewood provided a different education than what she was learning at Sac State. “We learned the ADA building codes, the commercial building codes,” she says, “but we never learned about materials suitable for residential use, how to engineer cabinetry, things that are special to this area of design.” Now that she’s graduated and back at Stonewood, Veronica is taking a lead role in design projects and working closely with clients. When she’s not in the showroom, Veronica is applying her organizational and design talents to her own home. She lives in Walnut Creek with her husband and their new puppy.
“My wife and I are still joyful with our brand new kitchen which was designed by Julie and her team. The level of service and professionalism, attention to detail, we received from her team was commendable. Julie more than delivered by listening, paying attention to our details and attending to all that she promised us to do. We will always recommend her to anyone who needs the same services.”
