Hops vine brings beautiful foliage in shades of golden-yellow to the summer garden. Summer Shandy hops (Humulus x ‘Sumner’) is an ornamental variety bred for its good looks (not for making beer). This hops vine isn’t aggressive, as hops tend to be. It’s well-suited to training on a trellis, fence or porch rail in a home garden. Vines grow 5 to 10 feet tall and up to 2 feet wide. Hardy in Zones 5-8. Why we love it: This hops variety is undemanding, easy to grow and adds season-long color to any garden.
Beautiful finishes mixed with a spectacular view make this summer home on Martha's Vineyard a dreamy destination. Slide back the glass doors and step out onto the deck to take in the unencumbered seascape.
This oceanside summer home uses bright, beachy pinks and yellows to create a French Country-inspired bedroom. A hammock chair makes for a cozy, whimsical spot to while away a lazy afternoon, while toile drapes and upholstered daybeds complete the look.
The sun-soaked town of Portofino, Italy was once a small fishing village. Now it attracts the yachts-and-summer-home crowd. A Mediterranean villa clings to the hillside, built in a style that launched a thousand McMansions in the United States.
