Julia Buckingham Joins Traditional Home for its Second Annual Napa Valley Showhouse at Charles Krug Winery

NEW YORK, NY (October 2013) – Julia Buckingham of Buckingham Interiors + Design will participate in Traditional Home’s second annual Napa Valley Showhouse this October at Charles Krug Winery. Julia joins six top designers in transforming Peter Mondavi Jr.’s former private residence into a stunning design showcase. The residence wasalso home to Robert Mondavi in the 1950s and 1960s. The dining room by Buckingham Interiors + Design reflects Principal Designer Julia Buckingham’s signature Modernique aesthetic. Circular patterns in blue and green and varied textures create a magical dining room meant to inspire conversation and memorable evenings around the table. An antique wooden wheel from a watermill in Europe is repurposed as a dining table and elegantly modern, platinum nailheaded "Tours" chairs from Kravet upholstered in a subtle, washed-blue animal print by Lee Jofa surround the circular glass topped table. A playful print from Jonathan Adler in varying shades of blue, gold and green frames the windows. All colors are echoed again in the glass spiral shaped cylinders of the mid-century Danish light fixture found by Julia in Paris. Gold beaded Maya Romanoff wall covering decorates walls above the wainscoting to "border" the ceiling. Buckingham I+D utilized found artwork by Linc Thelen to give warmth and a nod to bespoke artists to the walls. The original wainscoting is stained a light grey to lighten the look and to fully reflect a traditional yet modern dining room. The Showhouse—located at 2800 Main Street in St. Helena, California—will kick-off with a Preview Gala on Wednesday, October 9, and remain open to the publicfor nearly six weeks from Thursday, October 10 – Sunday, November 17. Visitors to the Showhouse will also enjoy exclusive access to the Peter Mondavi Sr. family’s historic renovation of the Charles Krug 1872 Redwood Cellar.
