Summer Thornton

Apartment Therapy's Summer Style Survey

Summer Thornton, the designer behind Chicago's Summer Thornton Design studio, shared her summer style with us:

Sun or Shade?: Sun of course...my name is Summer!

The Color of Summer 2010: Metallic gold - its shiny, shimmery, and I can't get enough of it! In an all white or neutral space it can be used to add a little 'flash'.

All Time Favorite Vacation:

Paris - without a doubt! While I'm not going this summer, I am going in September! Flea marketing, baguettes and over-the-top design...what more could a girl want?!

Most Refreshing Summer Drink:

Limeade - fill a cup with ice, squeeze 1/2 a lime, add a tsp of sugar, and fill with club soda or sprite. Refreshing, tart, and oh so summery!

Planted In The Garden This Year:

I have a major imaginary green thumb because I'm wishing I had a garden. But once I do have one, I'll fill it with peonies, hostas, ferns, lilly of the valley, and azaleas. I love a mostly green and slightly wild garden with a bit of color peeking out.

Essential Summer Song for Party Playlist:

For this summer, I'm loving KE$HA's "Your love is my drug". I know I shouldn't, but I do!

Best Book in Beachbag:

I'm not much for novels, but shelter and fashion magazines fit perfectly in my beach bag.

Thanks, Summer!
