Madeline Hughes spent nearly a year working on her Bohemian-inspired family-friendly home in SouthPark. It looks completely custom and designer, but it’s a true blend of high and low. She repurposed some of her existing items, went DIY when she could, and acted as project manager to save money. I love how hard she worked to make this fixer upper feel like home for her twins.
I saw Corri Smith tweet a photo of the exterior of her home and knew we had to tour. Corri’s brand identity is possibly the strongest in Charlotte, and her home is an extension of that. It’s mostly black, a little witchy, and filled with warmth.
I’ve been a big fan of Charlotte Lucas for a long time, and her personal home certainly didn’t disappoint. She’s one of those people who just has fun with design — from layers of pattern and color to her custom cocktail lounge and bar.
Natalie Papier might be new to Charlotte, but it took no time for her to win us over. Another insanely talented designer, Natalie is queen of color and quirk. Her house changed the way I think about what a home should look like — there is no “should,” turns out. If you like it, go for it.
Katie Roche’s house is first-home goals. Seriously, every time my boyfriend and I drive past Madison Park I say “I just want a house like Katie’s. Do you think it would be weird if we copy her floor plan?” She did a stellar job of finding local vendors who create quality cabinetry, rugs, etc. at reasonable prices.
