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.
