Full of elegance with touches of whimsy, Design Studio South used a blush and olive colour palette keeping things soft and fresh – and of course very Southern.
“Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It’s more than where you’re born, it’s an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. Its more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, beer, bourbon and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies and coca-cola, and each other. We don’t become Southern, we’re born that way.”
The South is full of beauty. It’s up to us, however, to seek out this beauty. As Southerners, we find a lot of our beauty in history. Wormsloe Plantation is flushed with history and was the perfect backdrop for a classic aesthetic. We’re known for our hospitality, our thank you’s and our yes mam’s. Design Studio South put together this beautiful shoot highlighting what early Spring in Savannah, Georgia, has to offer. The incredible blush gown by Sarah Seven was an easy choice; it’s light and frothy texture wrapped itself around the wind so gently without a moment’s notice. Our goal was to capture the light and fresh quality that the South brings. A lazy day. A quiet morning. Sipping coffee in your sun room. These were the emotions we strived to evoke with our soft colors, our antique golds and our linen texture. No fuss. No mess. Just quiet moments in the Savannah sun.
