Top 20 African American Designer of The Month


Cheryl Luckett, Principal Designer of Dwell by Cheryl Interiors believes her clients should dwell in a home they love; a place that gives them a sense of well-being both indoors and out. Like Cheryl’s southern roots, her love for design runs deep.  Her journey began at Tennessee State University where she earned a BS degree in Family and Consumer Science and learned the fundamentals of design but ultimately became a Registered Dietitian, a credential she continues to maintain. To strengthen her design knowledge, Cheryl returned to school locally and obtained a Residential Interior Design diploma from Central Piedmont Community College in 2017.  For more than 15 years Cheryl worked at a Fortune 500 company in Charlotte, North Carolina where she was initially employed as a Dietitian and subsequently a human resources professional in diversity and inclusion. It was here she developed her service skills and business acumen. In 2016, Cheryl left her career in Corporate America to utilize her gift as an interior designer full-time.

Not surprising, her work has been published in Charlotte Home and Garden, Southern Home, The Charlotte Observer, Queen City Exclusive, and Hoffman Media’s Southern Spaces to name a few. She is a six-time recipient of the Best of Houzz Award for Design and Customer Satisfaction and in 2015 was named one of the 15 Best Designers in Charlotte by Build Direct™. Cheryl also believes in giving back and has partnered locally with agencies such as Goodwill of the Southern Piedmont and Metrolina Habitat Restores to promote the non-profit retailers and their missions.

Her southern roots, natural ability, corporate tenure and continuing education have equipped her to be a multi-faceted creative entrepreneur poised for a successful career in the interior design industry.
