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.

How to Grow Creeping Thyme

Essential Summer Song for Party Playlist:

"Can You Feel It" by The Jacksons.

Can You Feel It MP3

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.

Thanks, Anna!
