Evelyne Clinton’s New Orleans
EVELYNE CLINTON is a designing woman who travels the world searching for unique furnishings and accessories to stock her fabulous mid-century modern shop, Source, in New Orleans. Source is a design enthusiasts delight filled with French, Italian and Swedish antiques, modern lighting, unique gifts and Evelyne’s curated favorites from local artists as well.
Always the epitome of southern grace and style, Evelyne also has her pulse on the creme de la creme in the city, so I asked her to share city secrets for her hometown of New Orleans.
