Robin Petravic, designer and partner at Heath Ceramics, shared his summer style with us:

Sun or Shade?: Shade (which means its sunny too)

The Color of Summer 2010: We're going to Scandinavia for our summer vacation so I think its going to be blues.

All Time Favorite Vacation:

When I was a kid we spent every summer on pebble beaches on the coast of Croatia where my grandfather had built a house. Its hard to beat the place where you learned how to swim, dive for sea urchins, fish, or got your first stitches.

Most Refreshing Summer Drink:

I like water, sparkling water straight up. Interestingly, every kind is a little different in the size of bubbles and subtle flavors they impart - there are tons of different varieties so when you travel its like local sampling that helps you get to know a new place. Adding fresh citrus is as fancy as i get - but a nice addition on hot summer days.

Planted In The Garden This Year:

Because we travel and have a lot of shade in our garden I stick to herbs - mint, cilantro, and parsley are the staples that I use every time we grill vegetables.

Essential Summer Song for Party Playlist:

Laughing kids and barking dogs.

Best Book in Beachbag:

For me, summer and a beach is a great time to get reacquainted with your old penguin paperback Graham Greene novels. For my 5 year old son I like to bring any of Maira Kalman's illustrated books for kids.

Thanks, Robin!
