Charlotte Lucas is known for her appreciation of the impact of color, pattern, and detail in her work. The designer started her own firm in 2012 and has since worked on projects all throughout the Southeast.This beautiful Eastover kitchen project, done in a space that was remodeled but not gutted, exemplifies her signature style perfectly. “The kitchen had great bones,” Charlotte explained, so she wanted to preserve plenty of the original surroundings. The young family in this Eastover home is busy, and since the kitchen is the heart of the family, Charlotte knew she wanted a clean and crisp design to complement “the day-to-day chaos with kiddos.” She painted everything pure white to offset the added moments of color in the Roman shades, lanterns, and additional small details (like the cabinet handles and sink fixtures) to add further interest to the space.
