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.
More to come throughout June, July and August!
