Designer Crush: Charlotte Lucas Design

I love discovering new designers who have portfolios full of work that stretches my own personal aesthetic.  Charlotte-based designer, Charlotte Lucas (how perfect) has managed to do just that.  Her work is fresh and current while maintaining a sense of balance, and I love the mod vibe that weaves it's way through her spaces, like the drapery in this office:

Or this saffron yellow wallpaper:

This colorful living room located in Charleston was featured in the March issue of Lonny Mag.   The pink chinoserie fabric on these pink tub chairs is a hardy indoor-outdoor, despite the dainty look and feel.  A pop of navy velvet covers the settee in the foreground:

 A mix of a whimsical Quadrille fabric, yellow tape trim, and a bullion fringe detail combine to create an unforgettable sofa.  I find Charlotte's ability to edit and create the perfect blend of contrasting styles very inspiring.  

This entryway features one of my favorite Circa Lighting ceiling fixtures and a fabulous wallpaper that trails on to the main panel of each adjoining door.

The rough, untamed brushstrokes in the painting below mirror the blue swirl Bunny Williams table lamp on the right side table.  I also adore the round brass and glass table, as round cocktail tables aren't spotted as often these days.

Charlotte studied interior design at the University of Georgia, and has already managed to create a coveted portfolio at the age of 31.   She was surrounded by the design world from an early age, as her mom was also a successful interior designer.  While reading her story, I related to her early memories of visiting flea markets and antique stores with her mom.  My mom was an antique dealer when my brother and I were younger, so many of my first memories are rummaging through estate sales and ducking underneath tables to hunt for treasures. A love of objectry was infused in my blood from those early years, so it shouldn't be a surprise to me that I ended up in the design world.

Be sure to visit Charlotte's webpage for more beautiful spaces!  Even the graphic design of her website (probably my favorite I've ever come across- created by Stitch Design Co.) is impeccable.


What say you? I'm all ears.
