A traditional Northfield library gets a vibrant makeover.
Julia Buckingham of Chicago’s Buckingham Interiors + Design worked with the architectural elements of this Northfield home’s library to create a magnificent and calming space. “This was the room in the house that was most greatly transformed,” says Buckingham of the extensive makeover, noting that the sleek wall panels were originally a knotty pine. With a natural symmetry created by built-in bookcases, the room feels balanced and totally modern. Buckingham Interiors + Design, (312) 243-9975; Buckinghamid.comReal Estate
