the taste of summer

WHEN I WAS ATTENDING CONNECTICUT COLLEGE, my friends and I used to celebrate the end of the school year with a trip to Abbott’s Lobster in the Rough, a classic New England seafood dive on the Mystic River in Noank. At the time, we never considered it a “dive.” For us college kids, it was a big deal to drop $18 on a lobster, and Abbott’s was an exotic destination with the freshest seafood any of us had ever tasted. We loved the character of the place, with its dark cedar shingles, old school menu board, and big red-and-white tent you could see from a mile away. A weathered sign out front read, “Dear Patrons … Your lobster is swimming when you place your order.” They’re still doing it that…

meet nala and gus

A BUDDING FRIENDSHIP After Nick and Lauren Youtz rescued Nala, 6, from the Bahamas (where mutts are called “potcakes”), she was top dog in the Youtz household—until Lauren found a stray puppy on the side of the road near their home in Panama City Beach, Florida. They first tried to place Gus (now 4) with rescue organizations and neighbors, because the two dogs weren’t getting along, but by the end of the week, a friendship had formed. Lauren says, “When we were cooking dinner and they thought we weren’t looking, they would be sharing a rope toy and playing tug-of-war.” TOGETHER FOREVER The two dogs are now inseparable, and Gus’s presence has helped with Nala’s anxiety. Even though Gus is the more social of the two, he sticks by Nala because…

puppies in paradise

DOG BEACH San Diego, California The laid-back surf neighborhood of Ocean Beach boasts one of the first official leash-free beaches in the United States. At the succinctly named Dog Beach (pictured above), a wide stretch between the Ocean Beach Pier and the Mission Bay jetty, dogs can roam off-leash year-round. Look for the large metal paw print marking the entrance. DAVIS ISLANDS DOG BEACH Tampa, Florida Four-legged friends roam free on this small stretch of fenced-in beach just 10 minutes from downtown Tampa. The shallow water and strategically placed breakwater mean calm seas ideal for teaching first-time swimmers.

made on the coast

The best of the coast this month LAURA KRAMER LBK STUDIO PAWTUCKET, RHODE ISLAND Kramer founded her glass production studio in 2001, and in the years since, her work—which draws on her backgrounds in sculpture, design, anthropology, and archaeology—has included creating items such as glasses and vases, as well as objects inspired by her love of nature. “It has gone from really functional [pieces] to art that you can have in your home,” Kramer says. Today, her proximity to the ocean and the things she collects during her walks on the shore influence much of her work; lbkstudio.com. LEAH KLASOVSKY LEAHLANI SKINCARE KAUA‘I, HAWAI‘I When California native and Hawai‘i transplant Leah Klasovsky first became a licensed aesthetician, she was less than impressed with the skincare products at her disposal. So she began making her own. “I blended and…

lobster red + aqua blue

Fresh ideas for beach homes Buy It The Inspiration A parasol-dotted shoreline along Italy’s Amalfi Coast Hue IQ Aqua cools the intensity of reds, and can work a bit of magic on the rest of us, too. The bright, bluegreen shade is believed to have a mellowing effect on moods, and is linked to feelings of emotional balance. Pair it with sun-washed red on porches and in cabanas for an escape that’s brimming with positive energy. PAINT IT Strokes of brilliance: use these vivid red shades to turn plain Jane furniture or lighting into radiant centerpieces.

summerhouse style guide

A Time-hop Porch Like a breezy revival of summers past, this East Hampton porch (designed by Matthew Patrick Smyth and Peter Pennoyer) was created in the spirit of simplicity: the sea breeze as central air, pretty wicker seating for conversation and coffee, and a cedar-shingled view of the ocean. SMALL-PATTERN TEXTILES From soft florals to delicate block prints, scaled-down patterns recall trends of the early to mid-20th century, made fashionable by designers like Sister Parish and William Morris. Opt for pastels for a purist approach, or modernize the iconic style with hotter, brighter colorways. A Cool Backyard Retreat Breathing room was a hot commodity in early American summerhouses, as owners sought escape from the crush of cities and growing suburbia. A peek behind the hedges of interior designer Jenny Wolf’s 120-year-old beach house in New…
