above: raffia bustier by John Rocha (Though this looks totally uncomfortable, it’s so fabulous I might just grin and bare it. I’m picturing this layered with an open, sheer, linen top in crisp white for the ultimate summer look.); rattan basket from the Japanese design firm F/Style; crib from l’Atelier du Petit Parc (Be sure to check out their entire site for similar retro rattan furniture of all kinds.)
You know that when blogs and magazines start to feature rattan, raffia, and sea grass, it’s officially time to bust out the shades and sun screen. Ahhhh summer.
