Presented by South End Exchange, Charlotteans’ go-to for high-end home consignment since 2003. Follow South End Exchange on Instagram to be the first to see new inventory.

Our pick for best use of color is what I call a jewelry box house. Each room inside feels like its own hue-soaked treasure, brilliantly layered in beautiful patterns, textures and, of course, colors.

The house: At 3,829 square feet, the Eastover home has five bedrooms and five bathrooms.

Design: This home’s style is best described as layered, transitional and livable – the latter being a must with a family of five, plus a golden retriever. They moved to Charlotte from New York after COVID, and called on Charlotte Lucas Design to make their new house feel like home.

  • The goal was to make the house livable, comfortable and durable to withstand the kids, but lovely enough for frequent hosting.
  • The house, complete with plenty of pattern and color, in true Charlotte Lucas form, is a wonderful reflection of this young, vibrant family with nods to their time in NYC and family travels.

Best features: The dining, entry and living room are the first three spaces you see upon entering and they set the tone with impactful wallpaper, paint and patterned upholstery.

  • In the office, they used a whimsical Schumacher fabric in lieu of wallpaper to bring warmth and texture to the space that actually makes you want to sit down and work.
  • There’s a wet bar between the kitchen and dining room which features matchbook art from places near and dear to the owners’ hearts.
  • The screened-in porch, complete with plenty of wicker furniture, is a nod to the South, welcoming these New Yorkers to the Queen City and encouraging that sense of Southern hospitality in their frequent entertaining.

Take a look around.
