Designing Southern Interior
Being a female business owner, an idea that was once rare, is now a growing career that many women are conquering with style, sass, and intellect. With that being said, I would like to introduce to you, Cheryl Luckett. Cheryl Luckett, born and raised in South Mississippi [ a true Black Southern Belle], has a core belief that “everyone deserves to dwell in a place that they absolutely love,” and her business, Dwell by Cheryl Interiors (launched in 2012) makes this belief very affordable and approachable for her clients. Cheryl’s southern soul allows her to see the potential of any space and bring out its charm, all while making it very much functional.
Cheryl received a head-start on design fundamentals, earning a Bachelor of Science in Family and Consumer Science from Tennessee State University; but interior designer Cheryl Luckett did not stop there. Continuing her education, Cheryl became a Registered Dietitian with her credentials up to date, and she is currently in the process of furthering her education to soon receive her Residential Interior Design Diploma.
Along with her rigorous schedule of running a business and completing her studies, Cheryl also works a daytime job as a Human Resources professional at a Fortune 500 company in Charlotte, North Carolina. With the rapid growth of Dwell by Cheryl Interiors, Cheryl Luckett is a four time recipient of the annual Best of Houzz Award for Design and Customer Satisfaction, and not to mention, having the honor of being amongst the Top 15 Interior Designers in Charlotte by Build Direct in 2015. Cheryl’s work is recognized by features in publications locally and nationally, making an upcoming appearance in the fall in Hoffman Media’s book entitled Southern Spaces: For Beautiful Living.
To wrap up the many achievements that Cheryl Luckett has received and those that she has yet to accomplish, her clients all speak highly of her gift to create a beautiful space on a budget, her professionalism, and her sharpness when it comes to detail.
