• While Mark is away hunting down new colors, we're running his top old hits.

Name: Galvanized
Brand: Ralph Lauren
Number: UL12

I recently moved into my own studio apartment after years spent in a dumpy tenament under decorative duress. I wanted a radical change, and a dark chocolatey accent wall that I could snuggle up under. I chose Ralph Lauren's Galvanized an espresso-bean color with a warm base, which I could also use as a ground for a decorative pattern later. The result is sleek, dramatic, sexy and urban - exactly what I wanted...

Special note: Ralph Lauren just released two new lines of colors in april called Urban Loft and Vintage Masters, featuring dark neutrals and delicious, mysterious blues.
