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.
More to come throughout June, July and August!
