The sky, the ocean, the salt.

I have this gorgeous and stunningly bright turquoise planter on my terrace that sits next to a pair or bright white Richard Schultz 1966 lounge chairs

The contrasting white and turquoise between them is my favorite color combination. Every year when Summer comes around I unconsciously start buying anything resembling that addictive greenish cyan.

The color revives so many childhood memories, I’m not sure why, I grew up in a landlocked country and didn’t see the ocean until I was 13 years old. Maybe it was the impossibly bright skies that I grew up staring at – they seemed so much bluer than our skies here, and as I child I never remember them being grey or sad – only penetratingly blue with slow lingering silky white clouds.

So many memories… the colors in the items below take me back there.
