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.

Thanks, Laurie!
