Morocco and Bali Influences Custom Charlotte Home

Designed for a young family with ties to New York, this whole home design is just what the clients had in mind -- modern but warm and functional for their daily life with two young children. This space won First Runner Up in the 2020 Designer of the Year Awards, Whole Home 3,000 sqft & Above category.

Spanning about 7,000 square feet, House of Nomad tackled every detail of this stunning new build from layout and custom paint plan to favorite design stand-outs such as the kitchen -- complete with lacquered white cabinets with no pulls, stunning island design and a cement backsplash. 

Another favorite is the second-floor lounge, with it's relaxing Bali vibes and black and white and leather components. The designers traveled to both Bali and Morocco, hand-sourcing rugs and d├ęcor for this client, layering their home not just with consistent design but with story. Set in a neighborhood in Charlotte, NC, that is known for its traditional, southern designs -- this modern home is a stand-out in the Queen City design scene.

A challenge from the beginning was creating the modern home of the client’s dreams, while making sure the result was also warm and inviting. To achieve this, for example, the design team juxtaposed materials to create a modern result -- but one with depth. For example, a custom white paint plan was used throughout the home as well as modern, light flooring but it was paired with leather accents and pops of black and white. Lacquered cabinets were matched with concrete, Moroccan wool rugs and wood with texture.

Scale for the spacious foyer was tricky, with the client requesting something practical for traffic but also asking to keep it stylish. The team’s response was to play with finishes, pairing a lucite and stainless light fixture with a sculptural table and leather Bali stools and a handcrafted Moroccan rug -- a show stopping entry moment.
