Carte Blanche with Charlotte Lucas

Carte Blanche with Charlotte Lucas

Posted by Claire Van Zee on

Step foot into Charlotte Lucas’ home and you’ll instantly take note of her recognizable style drawing on bold colors and whimsical details, the cornerstones of her namesake interiors firm headquartered in North Carolina. She deploys the same tokens of her taste on the table, where we gave her carte blanche to put an Avenue spin on a Charlotte original scene. The end result? A fun and fresh nook that rings true to her current style mantra: more is more. 

In the words of Charlotte herself, more is more! We love her combination of Ginori dinner plates and our Avenue exclusive woven placemats. Take a note out of Charlotte's rule book and mix and match to your heart's desire here.
