I went to Paris last year due to the prompting of my friend and talented designer, Julia Buckingham Edelmann of Buckingham Interior Design of Chicago. If you are in Chicago, make sure you visit her store. If you aren't in Chicago, check out her website! Julia is one of Chicago's leading designers, and I would say one of the leading designers in our country. Be on the lookout for many exciting things to come from Julia in the very near future!
Julia is one of my favorite designer friends. I am always excited when I find out we are meeting up at industry events. We had known each other for many years on social media, but it wasn't until a couple of years ago, that we met in person. We were instant friends.
I just returned from three days with Julia at a Thermador and Traditional Home "Great Kitchens Event" in California. The event was amazing! Being with Julia was the icing on the cake! There is always laughter and giggles when Julia and I get together.
This morning I was delighted to discover, Julia was sharing her color tips, with Traditional Home magazine! She is a color diva, so take heed. These are tips worth savoring.
I have included only a 12 of my favorites of Julia's tips, because I didn't want to lift Traditional Home's entire article, but I did want to whet your appetite, so you will, click over to the feature and to read all the tips and see more photos of Julia's work.
Let's start with a photo of Julia's own office! This is truly a girl who has her head in the clouds in a good way! Don't you love this? Her color tip for this room is right on the money!
I loved all her tips, but this one was brilliant! Who but Julia, would think of the non-colors, when considering color? Metallics are color! The patina of metals creates either a cool room or a warm room depending on the use of gold or silver.
Let's read some of Julia tips on color, and then I invite you to pop over to Traditional Home for the entire article. I'm going to bookmark this article because these tips are some of the best I have read about using color!
Here we are in Paris last September.
Make sure you visit Julia's website and take a gander at all things fabulous that is Buckingham Interior Design (BID). Also, make sure you follow Julia on her social media channels below! She is quite the social media maven and has some of the best instagram postings you will find on instagram!
