Catherine Bailey, designer and partner at Heath Ceramics
, shared her summer style with us:
Sun or Shade?: Shade
The Color of Summer 2010: Yellow, a little acidic, with a little grey and a teeny tiny touch of green. AKA Pratt & Lambert's Acacia Cluster, my new hallway color, and Heath's tile color "Bright Yellow"(my kitchen backsplash). For me it's every summer's color. All Time Favorite Vacation:
Somewhere not so hot where everyone else does not go. Hana, on the eastern part of Maui fits the bill perfectly, but we like to go in February. In the summer it's hard to beat West Marin 20 minutes from where we live.
Most Refreshing Summer Drink:
Planted In The Garden This Year:
Succulents, I've given up on vegetables, our yard has too many trees (and deer). we get the "box" of seasonal veggies and fruits delivered weekly now.
Essential Summer Song for Party Playlist:
Something nostalgic, off a Little Bit of Somethin (Tommy Guerrero)
Best Book in Beachbag:
Patti Smith "Just Kids" and Shop Class as Soulcraft by Matthew B. Crawford
