Amy Rutherford, proprietor of Red Barn Mercantile, shared their summer style with us:

Sun or Shade?: Shade. No, make that air conditioning.

The Color of Summer 2010: I'm currently obsessed with orange. It's the perfect accessory for everything from your toes to your pillows.

All Time Favorite Vacation:

I love San Francisco. It's amazing in any season.

Most Refreshing Summer Drink:

Hands down it's Coca-Cola Classic over a ton of ice. The fountain variety is preferred.

Planted In The Garden This Year:

My kids and I are attempting to grow zinnias from seeds, but with my brown thumb it's not likely to happen.

Essential Summer Song for Party Playlist:

Old school REM - anything from the IRS years.

Best Book in Beachbag:

There's no room for books what with pool toys, beach towels, swimsuits, water shoes, goggles and sunscreen for two kids. Might be able to squeeze in a shelter mag but it will be tight.

Thanks, Amy!
