Orange Delight

Christian Leone's Manhattan LR; Lonny Mag Sept / Oct 2011

To our great delight, the latest Lonny Mag hit the digital stream on Saturday.  We could not get enough (pg.190-202) of the handsome Sutton Place apartment of Christian Leone, a Vice President of Gilt Groupe.  The bold orange lacquer and teal velvet had us at hello.

Now our color interest is piqued…what are the specifics on this energetic wall paint, Christian?!  Doesn’t it feel remarkably similar to a new Farrow & Ball color we’ve been eyeing, Charlotte’s Locks, No. 268?

It also reminds us of a favorite lipstick from YSL.  If high gloss orange lacquer walls feel a bit too bold for you, maybe the lipstick is a good first step towards this color!  (And, Refinery29 confirms – an orange lip is having a moment!)

    Why yes, an orange lip is having a moment. I should know, I wore it the other night- Nars Heat Wave is the one to wear!
