ZONES Introindux

Welcome to ZONES.

It’s a different way of looking at home and fashion, brought to you by the Metro Times.

This season is all about coming in from the cold. Finding a warm hearth. Gathering, in twos and threes and more. Finding the bright spots in candlelight and glitter, and keeping our spirits alive until spring.

In this issue, we explore some ways to open those doors and bring a bit of light into the dark fall and winter seasons. We gather with friends, around good food, in beautiful settings. We go out, hit the town — we’re there to see and be the scene, brightening up our night lives with a glamorous twist. We reflect on the way nature still flourishes, even when the temperatures are falling, and heat things up again for our own take on this season’s hottest looks.

We hope you’re inspired by this issue of Zones. It’s the spark at the heart of your most brilliant ideas.
