Episode 423: Julia Buckingham


Julia Buckingham leads a new generation of world-class interior designers bringing her Modernique® chic sensibility to both residential and commercial design projects around the country. Her spectacular collections of licensed product, numerous high profile panels, show houses, and personal appearances around the globe have earned her the reputation of a rock-solid force in the industry. Destined to become a design icon, the soon-to-be author runs highly successful design studios in Chicago and Phoenix specializing in luxury interiors with her signature vintage and modern mix.


Buckingham is known for stunning interiors that are a window into the past and a bridge to the future. Her design signature is to artfully weave together a tapestry of antiques, modern and artifacts along with her custom designed pieces to create an updated approach that reflects today’s lifestyles. With her signature style she calls Modernique®, Julia seamlessly blends furniture and fixtures from the past with those of today for interiors that convey a warm and youthful style, all with a timeless quality.


The thread of design weaves consistently through her career: from her early experience working for Neiman Marcus in fashion merchandising to pursuing her love for collecting antiques which she turned into a business as an antiques dealer to launching her own design company Buckingham Interiors + Design in 2007 where she combines all her passions into a thriving interior design business.


Since opening her design studio Buckingham Interiors + Design LLC in 2007, Julia has enjoyed national recognition as a tastemaker and color expert throughout the design industry. She is in demand as a trendsetter and contributes to Traditional Home magazine’s Color Master Classes and a founding contributor to the popular design blog Material Girls. She is also a Trendspotter for Silestone by Cosentino. Most recently, Julia has partnered with Kohler Company, Silestone by Cosentino, and Benjamin Moore to create a spectacular designer kitchen. Buckingham is often featured as a leading interior designer and tastemaker in national and international media including Elle Décor, Interior Design, Traditional Home, Domaine Home, Luxe, Rue Magazine, Lonny, Chicago Home & Garden, CS Interiors, and Chicago Tribune Home Magazine to name a few.
