Designer & author Todd Oldham shared his summer style with us: The Color of Summer 2012: Bright olive green mixed with turquoise. All Time #1 Vacation Location: St. John, Virgin Islands. Still an underpopulated heaven on Earth. Hotel You'd Love to Escape To: Caneel Bay, St. John. Most Prized Souvenir from Your Travels: My beloved Jack Russell, Ann, who I met on a trip to California. Planted in the Garden this Year: I planted the usual mix of heirloom tomatoes and lettuces, but the most unusual planting was a multi-coloured Mexican corn that my parents found in New Mexico. The seeds had been rescued from a job site and found sealed in hundred year-old Indian terra cotta pots. After hundreds of years underground, the seeds have taken beautifully and are now 5-foot tall plants. Favorite Patio in the World: The floating dining table arbor at Grey Towers in Milford, PA, absolutely stunning. Must Have Item for Summer Entertaining: Good music and good friends. Most Refreshing Summertime Drink: Blueberry lemonade put through the carbonator! Essential Song for Your Party Playlist: Anything by Astrud Gilberto, you could hear her at the supermarket and be instantly transported. Best Book in the Beachbag: The Portable Dorothy Parker. Thanks, Todd! To celebrate summer, Apartment Therapy has asked some of the most stylish people we know to answer a few survey questions on how they enjoy the season. There's more to come!
