Nestled in the historic neighborhood of Lincoln Park, Chicago, sits what appears to be a quiet, restored manse from the 1900’s.
Upon climbing the short flight of stairs to the arched porch clad with ivy and in through the glass doors, a realization sets that the aesthetic is at once traditional but uniquely modern design, a term otherwise known as “Modernique,” coined to express the signature style used in every one of the homes I (Julia Buckingham, Buckingham Interiors + Design) design.
The careful, artful, and deliberate decisions made for the materials and accents chosen infuse life and interest in every nook of each room.
Blending furniture and fixtures from the past with those of today is not only part of what is Modernique, but also what I believe is authentically luxurious.
Adhering to the Auth Lux ethos, I maintain the integrity of this home’s history while building a bridge into the future with elements both exquisitely traditional and avant-garde.
Great design is not simply about what appeals visually, but also about what gives energy and purpose to anyone experiencing the space physically and emotionally.
My hope in creating this space was to give the client great design that reflects the principles I practice and their beautiful life as a family.
