The New Southern is dedicated to passionate humans who embrace their truth and use it as a platform to better communities and the world around them. I am committed to shining a light on these creative entrepreneurs, their processes, along with the four walls containing this synergistic infectious energy. Our stories are our power and every day is a new opportunity to use our truth to better the world around us.
Shooting for Allure magazine and working with their editorial staff is a definitely a highlight…. especially when they call me to contribute to an intimate bathroom series (Check out my last one here with Jen Auerbach). I am thrilled to share with you one of fashion’s icons, social activists, and singer songwriter, Karen Elson.
Bathrooms represent a fresh start or a therapeutic evening ritual… this is a place for stillness, pause…. a place for reconnection. Such intimate spaces share the inner-workings of a person's life and mentality. Are the countertops decorative? functional? barren? When I walked in Karen’s space there was a soulful and intentional story being told. I immediately connected to the saturation, the depth, the dotted gold details. This is collected at it’s finest and a whimsical reprieve. The design of this space is from the talented duo Pierce and Ward.
Thank you so much to Allure and Karen for welcoming me into this beautiful space! Make sure to grab a copy of Allure’s latest issue on stands NOW and have a look at the entire feature below! Xx
