Interior Designing a Southern Inspired Art Collection

Interior Designing a Southern Inspired Art Collection 9

We had the chance to talk to Cheryl Luckett, owner of Dwell by Cheryl Interiors! This Mississippi-raised belle who took her eye for design to Charlotte, North Carolina brings southern homes up to BSB standards. Below she shares with us her exclusive expertise on incorporating southern art into her home designs. 

1. What did you love about this project? 

The project 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.

2. What artists were in this client’s collection?

May need some help with this one.  It’s been a long time.  I know Twin and Jonathan Green

3. How can a Black Southern Belle use art to enhance her home’s decor? 

Art can certainly be jumping off point for an 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.

4. What are some non-traditional pieces that can be used as art for a gallery wall?

I’m loving JuJu hat’s 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.

5. What are some of your favorite Charlotte Art galleries to browse through?

Hidell Brooks and Shain Gallery are two of my favorites.

6. Any of them specialize in African American Art?

Unfortunately not.  However, I love roaming through the Harvey B. Gantt Center, Charlottes renowned African American cultural center.  They often feature exhibits that showcase black art, like this one currently on display.

7. Who is your favorite Southern artist? 

I tend to lean toward abstract art.  I’m really loving Kerry Steele from Virginia.  While I don’t own a piece of her work yet, her use of color speaks to me.

8. Who did the home photography?

Include website if possible Cam Richards Photography – http://www.camrichardsphotography.com/

9. How can we connect with you?
