About Us

A native of South Carolina, Charlotte has been in the design field for 25 years. She received her Bachelor of Arts from the College of Charleston, concentrating in Architectural History and Italian language. Afterwards, living in Rome for several years, she further cultivated her love of classical art and design from which she continues to draw inspiration. Returning to South Carolina, she later received her BA in Interior Design. Charlotte Lekakos (née Willard Palmer) opened her eponymous studio in 1996, and past projects have included Washington area and South Carolina residences, as well as installations for Dumbarton House Museum, and Catholic University. Before her career in design, Charlotte worked as an Italian language interpreter and translator, and collaborated with the Save Venice Foundation and Kohler Co. Her designs reflect her love for mixing family heirlooms with new pieces to create warm and lively interiors that are uniquely suited to the individual client. For each project, her goal is to create a comfortable and original expression of her clients' own tastes and sensibilities. "Once I understand a client's vision for their space, I enjoy experimenting with layers of old and new, then using color, lighting, and fine details to make a comfortable and appropriate setting for their lifestyle."
