Southern Charm

“Even though my little sister and I never went to Charleston when we were that young, I saw myself in it with my little sister, just exploring”

- Katie Urban on the Southern city she keeps coming back to

Katie (@katieurban_) can’t get enough of the south, namely Charleston, South Carolina. She took her first trip to Charleston in 2011 and has been back several times since. Each time, she makes a point to visit the Charleston City Market and add another brightly-colored painting to her collection. These pieces have traveled with her from her college sorority house to her young adult apartment and will be around for years to come.

This burgeoning collection now hangs on a wall in her a bedroom, a daily reminder of a place she loves. As she says, “I think it’s my favorite city in the world; it’s just so colorful and I feel so relaxed when i’m there. I just really appreciate the beauty and the charm and I always have good memories there. It’s just really cool to have somewhere that feels almost like your second home in a way.”
