Anna Dorfman, the blogger behind Door Sixteen, shared her summer style with us:
Sun or Shade?: If it's below 75 degrees, sun. Above 75, put me in the shade.
The Color of Summer 2010: Black! Okay, okay...and yellow. And white, too.
All Time Favorite Vacation:
I'm not much of a vacationer, but I would really love to have a solid week off with full sunshine, temperatures in the 70s, and plenty of energy so I could get a bunch of house and garden projects done without winding up a gross, sweaty mess.
Alternatively, I could really go for a trip to Stockholm for Midsummer!
Most Refreshing Summer Drink:
A nice, cold bottle of Grüner Veltliner from Vienna.
• Vino: 2005 H.u.M. Hofer Grüner Veltliner on the Kitchn
Planted In The Garden This Year:
Creeping thyme! I'm letting it grow wild so it will fill in the cracks between the paving stones we just laid.
Essential Summer Song for Party Playlist:
"Can You Feel It" by The Jacksons.
Best Book in Beachbag:
Right now I'm reading Imperial Bedrooms by Bret Easton Ellis. It's the follow-up to Less Than Zero, 25 years later. Ellis's books have this feeling of hot darkness that I always associate with summertime.
More to come throughout June, July and August!
