Charisma Blue

Green living is hot, hot, hot right now, and everyone seems to be looking for ways to reduce their environmental footprint in any way they can, particularly in decorating.  One of my favorite environmentally friendly products is Vetrazzo, a surface manufacturing company that produces cement based slabs infused with recycled glass products.  100% of the glass is reused, coming from either curbside recycling or from post-consumer manufacturing, such as discarded bottles from the Skyy Vodka and Heineken factories.  If you get lucky, you might even get a piece of glass in your surface that contains a leftover bottle label!  Although it is technically a manmade product, 85% of the entire surface is recycled!  Whether you decide to use it for a tabletop, kitchen counter or backsplash, you can feel good about having a chic, beautiful and eco-friendly surface!

One of my lovely BID girls, Paulina, tied the knot last year-and another BID gal Shannon is doing the same this month- and I have to say that I have always had a soft spot for weddings.  With two daughters (and a son) myself, I can’t help but dream about dresses, bouquets, cakes, shoes…(I am admittedly design obsessed, after all).

I was very excited when Chicago-based blog “The Every Girl” asked if they could use my Buckingham Interiors + Design showroom as the backdrop for their “Wedding Week” special!  This week long event highlighted budget conscious wedding decor, and I must say that I was very impressed!  Their styling was excellent and I was thrilled with their incorporation of antiques at my BID showroom.  Although they primarily used my bare white painted brick walls at the showroom, we certainly do have quite a bit on display…definitely stop by if you are in the Chi!  Buckingham Interiors + Design Showroom is located at 1820 Grand Avenue, Chicago. We have sold quite a few pieces in our latest exhibit of local artists-with day jobs-so the walls will be refreshed soon…I promise!
