Currently Featured in: US
Summer is in full swing and so is the air conditioner. Lately there have been days so unbearable that only ice cubes, popsicles and completely changing out the surrounding decor are the only things managing to beat the heat. Oh wait, is that last part just me? Ahoy! It's time to SOS (save our summer) and load up on refreshingly cool sea-inspired designs to keep the party, or just tonight's dinner, afloat. — Kristin from The Cuisinerd
