on trend: gray matters.
July 13, 2011
It’s summer in South Florida—home of the Luxe editorial offices—which means two things: It’s hot, and it rains a lot. After a week of nearly nonstop storms, I started feeling a little nostalgic for sunshine, but after two weeks of nearly nonstop storms, I couldn’t help but notice how the endless gray skies looked a little like my favorite paint hue: Ralph Lauren’s Forde Abbey. I know that summer’s all about bright colors and citrus pops, but gray is a year-round indulgence for me: moody but playful, sophisticated and versatile. After all, what better way to sit out the rain than by curling up on this theatrical Christopher Guy loveseat and reading by the light of this Plug Lighting lamp?
