Apartment Therapy's Summer Style Survey

Pin it button big

Jaime Salm, Founder and Designer of Mio shared his summer style with us…

SUN OR SHADE?: Definitely sun!

THE COLOR OF SUMMER 2010: I am in an aqua and orange phase at the moment…just not together.

ALL TIME FAVORITE VACATION LOCATION: Thailand. Best food, beautiful beaches, great people. Really hard to beat that! On the other hand Colombia is a gem too, but I am biased.

MOST REFRESHING SUMMERTIME DRINK: Cucumber infused vodka with lime and seltzer. Lots of ice or you can always frapee it.

PLANTED IN THE GARDEN THIS YEAR: If I had a garden it would be strawberries and basil. Both are essential for summer. The strawberries work as dessert or in cocktails and the basil is just plain delicious in a variety of dishes. I am getting hungry just thinking about a basil, mozzarella and tomato salad.

ESSENTIAL SUMMER SONG FOR PARTY PLAYLIST: Fa-Fa-Fa by Datarock or any song by Los Amigos Invisibles

BEST BOOK IN THE BEACHBAG: The Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb (Though I must admit to a serious backlog of books at the moment).

Thanks, Jaime!

To celebrate the start of 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.
