I always kind of think of summer as June, July, and August, but over my years in LA I’ve come to understand that summer starts in May and ends in October. For this reason, I’ve realized there’s still time to up my outdoor hosting game before the season ends. IT’S NOT TOO LATE YOU GUYS! So I’ve decided to share some of my favorite summer hosting items with you.
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE.
Three of my favorite trends of the year are blush pink, metallic finishes, and indigo blue. I know what you’re thinking, trends are stupid and lame and people who talk about trends are desperate and obnoxious, trying their hardest to cling to some sense that they have any understanding of what is going on in the world when really everything is just spinning out of control. HOWEVER, when scrolling through summer wares from my favorite retailers, it was impossible not to notice these three themes coming from every retailer. Metallics have been in forever, and they’re not going away. For this reason I think it’s not a bad idea to invest in that set of brass-finish cutlery you’ve been eyeing, or to install copper pulls in your kitchen. Indigo blue is big, partially because everyone finally woke up to the fact that shibori is awesome. And blush pink is hot, because why not? Pink is just an overall enthralling, warm color that should be splashed all over everything.
So come on in and let’s chat about the hosting items I’m coveting this summer.
