Ah, another summer full of playing Parcheesi and drinking dirty martinis by the pool.
Not there yet? Learn the fine art of the lounge at Stephanie Addis’s splashy new Santa Monica boutique. Inspired by summer soirees in Corona Del Mar, she’s got what it takes to go Ice Storm, West Coast style.
The vintage-modern shop specializes in everything you need to host a swinging ’70s pool party: mod chaise lounges and mosaic-topped dining sets, barware, and snazzy ashtrays, of course. Loads and loads of them.
For those who want to dress the part, the store stocks colorful Vitamin A swimwear and Seaton terrycloth towels and cover-ups. Vintage and estate jewels (colorful bangles, pendant necklaces, and Rolex watches) are coming soon and will be perfect for dolling up your paisley muumuu.
Now, darling, will you please pass the rumaki?
