Charlotte Lucas

Charlotte Lucas’s love for design started at an early age, learning to appreciate the impact of color, pattern and detail from her mother, also a designer. Her childhood was in many ways a design tutorial—spent in antique stores, flea markets, fabric stores, and showrooms across the Southeast. In 2012, Charlotte started her own design firm and has since worked on projects throughout the Southeast.

Liz Carroll Interiors

For the past nine years Liz Carroll Interiors offers one of a kind designs in furniture, lighting and flooring. The firm works to build relationships and work with clients one-on-one to meet their needs.
