Julia Buckingham Interiors

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 unique design style, captured in her new book, Modernique, Inspiring Interiors – Mixing Modern and Vintage Style, her spectacular collections of licensed products, 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, Julia runs a highly successful design studio in 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 antique dealer to launching her own design company Buckingham Interiors + Design, where she combines all her passions into a thriving interior design business.

Since opening her design studio Buckingham Interiors + Design Ltd in 2007, Julia has enjoyed national recognition as a tastemaker and color expert throughout the design industry. Julia is also a Trendspotter for Silestone by Cosentino, partnered with The KohlerCompany, Cosentino, and Benjamin Moore to create a spectacular designer kitchen and a vignette in NYC for DIFFA Dining by Design, and most recently was selected as an inaugural member of the Authentic Luxury Guild with Rohl. Buckingham is often featured as a leading interior designer and tastemaker in national and international media including Elle Décor, Interior Design, Traditional Home, House Beautiful, Domaine Home, Luxe, Rue Magazine, Lonny, Chicago Home & Garden, CS Interiors, and Chicago Tribune Home Magazine to name a few.
