He has worked for several great shelter magazines such as Elle Interiör, Living Etc and Elle Decoration. I love this part of his biography: "His dream assignment?

With a passion for beautiful antiques and a fascination for all things design Julia Buckingham Edelmann creates rooms with a twist on tradition.
