Now that summer’s officially here, I (Jenn) can’t stop daydreaming about my next beach getaway. Lately I’ve had visions of beating the heat in the cool, dark turquoise waters of the Mediterranean, somewhere along the Amalfi Coast… maybe the ancient town of Ravello where Jacqueline and Lee Bouvier used to vacation together (sigh). A girl can dream, right? Until my travel dreams become reality, I’ll be finding ways to incorporate an Italian seaside vibe into my summer decor using one my favorite hues: deep turquoise. I might start with these hand-blown glass lanterns from Anthropologie and throw in a few blue and turquoise pillows from Giardino, and I can always add a few more pieces to my collection of Judy Jackson bud vases. I’ll seal the deal with this turquoise cuff from Kelly Wearstler and a flowy white caftan, and I’ll be all set for the Italian Riviera (or grilling by the pool) oh-so-stylishly! What vacation spots are you currently fantasizing about?
