keeping calm: natural berry by ralph lauren

by Grace Bonney

Ever since moving into an apartment with all white walls, I’ve had a change of heart about paint colors. I used to immediately go for the darkest grays possible (hence the site redesign), because everything looks so beautiful against that color. But when it comes to my home, I’m starting to see the benefit of lighter colors. I’ve always wanted to find the palest pink possible for my bedroom (inspired by David Stark’s bedroom), and I think I may have found it, courtesy of Ralph Lauren. While walking through our neighborhood hardware store, I killed some time in the paint chip section and loved the pale pink offerings from RL. This pink color, Natural Berry, was so pale that the pink was almost imperceptible, but it was just pink enough to give a bit of warmth. For me, pink is one of the most calming colors. It always feels so relaxing and innocent and clean, and right now, as I prepare to reveal the D*S book cover, book trailer and tour dates (coming up at 11!), I could use a little bit of calm. My nerves are feeling jangly, so until then, I’m hoping this pink will calm me down . . . xo, grace
