Laurie Furber, Senior Vice President and Catalog Merchandise Manager at Pottery Barn, shared her summer style with us:
Sun or Shade?: In the sun with my shades on (and a generous coat of SPF 30).
The Color of Summer 2010: Beautiful porcelain blue – it reminds me of a swimming pool, or clear water on the beach in Isla Morada, Florida where we shot our summer catalog.
All Time Favorite Vacation:
My husband's family's beach house on the Puget Sound in Olympia, Washington. It's filled with mementos, music, family and friends.
Most Refreshing Summer Drink:
A vodka gimlet with fresh lime juice from the lime tree in my back yard.
Planted In The Garden This Year:
What isn't planted in my garden?! My favorite addition this year is lavender for my homemade Lavender-Honey Ice Cream.
Essential Summer Song for Party Playlist:
It's a toss up between Bob Marley's "Three Little Birds" and Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Love Rollercoaster."
Best Book in Beachbag:
This summer it's "The Women" by TC Boyle, about the loves of Frank Lloyd Wright's life. But my favorite summer read of all time is Harry Potter 7, which I read in the hammock at the beach house with my son Jack the summer it came out.
More to come throughout June, July and August!
