IN SUMMER, THE WORLD of design can be divided into two camps: people with vacation homes and people who are houseguests. I have fallen into both at various points in my life. In 2013, my partner, Marc, and I purchased an old farmhouse in East Hampton and, with the help of a neighbor (who had great taste), furnished the place. We painted the walls in Farrow & Ball’s St Giles Blue, Arsenic, and Yellowcake, and decorated with a mix of RH, Restoration Hardware and Beall & Bell antiques from the North Fork, along with white-linen sofas and beds. Instead of extensive renovations, we splurged on Hermès towels, Society Limonta bedding, Round Swamp Farm food, and a new garden to make it cozy. We drank Aperol spritzes and went swimming every…

Slim Aarons depicted a world that wasn’t just about gorgeous homes and people—it was about a life well lived. His photos captured summer. The season is about slowing down and simple pleasures: A few swimsuits and a fabulous straw hat are all you need. And there is nothing more restorative than the palette of blue and sun-bleached white from a Grecian landscape, one you can easily replicate in your own interiors. Wicker furniture adds an unexpectedly chic, relaxed look. And really, what could be more classic than the monogrammed needlepoint chairs in Yves Saint Laurent’s Marrakech oasis? Seating cards need not apply. SAINT LAURENT HOME: WHITNEY ROBINSON; ONASSIS: GETTY IMAGES; GUEST: SLIM AARONS/HULTON ARCHIVE/GETTY IMAGES; FABRIC: ALISON GOOTEE/STUDIO D. FOR DETAILS, SEE RESOURCES…

ART Art Above, So Below MUSEUMS HELP ANOINT TWO NEW GLOBAL DESIGN DESTINATIONS. THE NORVAL FOUNDATION, CAPE TOWN Mention Cape Town as a travel hot spot, and people are likely to think of wine-country tours and the famed Table Mountain. But developments over the past year suggest its name should also call to mind art galleries and design studios. In fall 2017, the tubular Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa opened, crafted from a historic grain-silo complex, and the city was also named a UNESCO City of Design. This spring, the Norval Foundation launched; the site, designed by DHK Architects, boasts a stark building home to exhibitions on 20th- and 21st-century South African artists, a gorgeous sculpture garden, and the Skotnes Restaurant (named for South African artist Cecil Skotnes). There is no better way…
