Art is the Soul of Home Design


Cheryl Luckett

By Cheryl Luckett

Art can be such an essential part of design and every now and then, I have the pleasure of working with a client that has a great art collection. Such was the case a couple of years ago when a South Charlotte client with a love for black art reached out to me about decorating her new home. In this particular project, the client had an affinity for contemporary black art, particularly Twin and Jonathan Green.

It was so much fun to pull together this space because it was essentially a blank slate. The client had recently purchased the home and needed help getting settled and creating a space representative of the family’s style. It was also necessary to ensure that the existing art would work with the décor.


Living Room

I usually begin each project with some sort of inspiration for the design. Art can certainly serve as that inspiration and can be jumping off point for an entire interior design project.  Here, I used the colors in the existing pieces to determine the scheme for both the formal living and the dining rooms.

By using the client’s existing art collection, we created a comfortable, cozy and beautiful space that spoke to the family’s personal style. However, if you don’t currently have a vast art collection, other cultural items can also add interest and flare to your home. For example, I’m loving JuJu hats right now.  I think they are a great way to add high impact in gallery walls or when used alone. Mask, artifacts and even framed treasures from the past are all great items to mix in with art pieces to create a more interesting gallery.

You’re home should be a representation of you and incorporating art work can be a great way to add history and a personal connection to your home’s décor.
