Check out boho details in Charlotte Lucas design portfolio

“I like to remind my staff that we’re not saving lives,” says interior designer Charlotte Lucas. “Designing is supposed to be fun!” The proof is in the portfolio of this 33-year-old wonder based out of Charlotte, NC.

I, for one, am gaga for this breakfast banquette in which she married midcentury forms with color and classic prints. In fact, it’s hard to get me not to like any room with woven window blinds!

Daybeds in unexpected spots are all the rage these days, and this one could be in a child’s bedroom or the main seating of a boho living room. The classy art and accessories keep you guessing, while the happy child testifies to the cozy factor.

My favorite part? The tassels on the throw, of course. (And that unicorn…I want that unicorn!)

I love the mix of pattern in the wallpaper, window seat, and rug in this photo. And who would have chosen chartreuse for the woodwork and cabinetry? It’s a bold choice, but one that speaks volumes—all boho!

This hallway makes an equally bold statement in its mix of color and pattern. Another unusual color choice for cabinetry—salmon—ups the wow factor when mixed with a classic chinoiserie wallpaper scene, a regency bench, and a folkloric mix of textiles. (The scooter is cute, too!)

I’ve long been a fan of woodwork painted in unusual colors (meaning something other than white or off-white). And this green is so soothing and on-trend with Pantone’s Color of the Year, Greenery (actually, Farrow & Ball Lichen). 

The midcentury modern egg chair also makes a strong counterpoint to the classic lines of the bookshelf. And I have to admit, books arranged by color are growing on me. I like how they mimic the blocked colors in the artwork displayed here.

The classic campaign desk and regency chair mix so well with the antelope print rug and global print draperies in this study. That lamp that looks like crushed gold paper is a personal favorite for me! And oh, those deep green walls—be still my heart!

Lucas knows a soft gray sofa can change face at the drop of a hat. But who would want to give up the soft oranges and teals she's accessorized it with here?

The global prints in the sofa and its throw pillows contrast with the classic lines of the chest, lamp and other accessories in a way that reminds me of British Colonial. And speaking of that lamp, I sure could go for a closer look.

Mixing pink and yellow was one of those design no-nos my mother warned me about. But I'm here to say, man-oh-man, was she ever wrong! This chinoiserie credenza is to-die-for, and I so want to see what the rest of that blue velvet chaise looks like.
