Beth Keim takes pride in her carefully crafted color concepts and marvelous details. As the owner and principal designer of Lucy and Company, an interior design firm located in Charlotte’s bustling South End, she specializes in original, bold designs and effortlessly modern spaces.
She recently revamped a home in Hickory, North Carolina. The home already consisted of expert design aspects, but needed a facelift in the form of new pieces and an updated palette. Beth Keim collaborated with the homeowners’ existing pieces to add to the artistic interior.
The home’s living space is a clean, simple aesthetic. White and dark contrast against gold accents while modern details bring it to life. Keim kept pre-existing staple pieces in her design, such as the homeowners’ light gray sectional. Additionally, the original crisp molding and wide windows allow a flood of natural light inside. New metal barrel chairs and a refreshingly modern coffee table create the perfect space to chat, unwind, and entertain.
Details are Keim’s specialty. The gold chandelier catches the eye immediately upon entry, and stretches across the ceiling in a delicate yet commanding manor. It also brings in the room’s slight gold accents such as the curtain rods, brassy shelving, and tones of the centerpiece painting. Beth’s husband, Keith Keim, created this work with paper by Porter Teleo.
They say if something isn’t broken don’t fix it. But, Beth Keim’s gentle yet effective design touch gave this living space exactly what it needed to rise to its full potential.
