                            Hello and welcome to Living Luxe, the premier lifestyle magazine serving the area we’ve dubbed the
                       “Golden CrescentTM,” that crescent-like shape formed when tracing from the Jacksonville Beaches south,
                       through Ponte Vedra Beach, and then inward to Nocatee. Why golden? Because this region represents the
                       greatest concentration of wealth and new luxury housing development in all of North Florida. And when
                       adding our other waterfront markets of Riverside/Avondale, San Marco and San Jose, Living Luxe is
                       reaching the most affluent readership of greater Jacksonville.
                             This Summer 2019 issue continues our tradition of sophisticated storytelling and breathtaking
                       photography with an opening article on the iconic glasswork of Dale Chihuly. From the lobby of the
                       beautiful Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas to that of our own Mayo Clinic hospital to the Morean Arts Center in
                       downtown St. Petersburg, Chihuly’s blown-glass masterpieces can be easily accessed by those here on the
                       First Coast. If making the trek to St. Petersburg, take note of the award-winning Tampa Bay beach
                       communities highlighted in this edition’s travel story.
                             But if soaking up the sun near the emerald waters of Tampa Bay isn’t in the cards this season, we bring
                       the delights of relaxing in a refreshing summer haven much closer to home, as in your own backyard:
                       “Poolside Paradise” showcases some of the region’s most spectacular pools and emerging design trends to
                       create your own personal outdoor oasis.
                             We follow with features on everything from beautiful boudoirs to the best hair and nail trends to an
                       extensive July 4th food, flags and fireworks guide. And don’t miss our lighthearted “Luxe Libations
                       Challenge” sure to bring a smile (and sugar-rimmed concoction) to your lips.
                             So, relax, dive in, and we hope you’ll enjoy this latest offering from Living Luxe!
