YOUR SPRING OUTLOOK WITHNicolette MasonStarting fresh and staying optimistic with the NYC-based brand consultant and design expert in her new Brooklyn digs.
How she’s embracing (and driving!) change these days 1. “After 11 years in the same apartment, I’ve moved into a new space that’s so full of light and feels really incredible to settle into. I’m embracing the metaphorical rebirth that spring brings in a very literal way.”2. “This last year has really put the ways we dedicate our time and energy into perspective. I’m excited to recalibrate my priorities and focus more on joy, being present and romanticizing all the facets of my life.”3. “Professionally, I’m working on a few projects that continue to push conversations and initiatives about what real, authentic inclusion looks like in the fashion and beauty industries. Promoting equity is really important to me.”4. “I’m really focused on LGBTQ rights, especially as they pertain to trans people. There are currently 108 state-level bills targeting LGBTQ people, with trans youth at the center of that target. Part of my action to uplift and protect those people is supporting and donating to organizations like Trans Lifeline and Third Wave Fund.”
Step inside her bright new space…
“With the weather getting warmer, days getting longer and vaccine rollout well on its way in NYC, I’m really welcoming the energetic shift that’s happening right now, and I’m manifesting that in my personal life, for sure.”
“I’ve always been more likely to overdress than not, and have definitely been feeling the itch to create real LOOKS, just for the sake of it. I’m excited about getting dressed in a way I haven’t been in a long time.”
Nicolette’s camera rollSome recent snaps that always make her smile…
“I love having fresh flowers at home. My friend Aurea (@flowerbodega) creates the most stunning arrangements.”
“The first day of springy weather had me feeling myself! I did my makeup (just for fun) and spent time on my patio basking in the sun.”
“My girlfriend and I wanted our new bedroom to feel like a hotel suite, and worked with Nightwood NY (a local LGBTQ women–owned business) to create this built-in headboard and bedframe.”
“The energy and buzz of New York feels like it’s coming back in a major way, after what has been a really challenging year.”
“Our neighborhood in Brooklyn is filled with fantastic Japanese restaurants and markets. We got this takeout from Okozushi on Graham Avenue.”
“One of my NYC rules: Always look up! I love the character of this West Village townhouse.”
