SLOW LIV­ING

Real Living (Philippines) - - Rl Entertains - by DAGNY MADAMBA, deputy as­so­ci­ate editor

“I’ve been read­ing a lot about slow liv­ing since the start of the year, and it’s some­thing that in­spires me on a more per­sonal level. Slow liv­ing might mean dif­fer­ent things to other peo­ple, but for me, it is tak­ing time to lis­ten to your own thoughts. That’s what I would like to em­body in this ta­ble set­ting. I wanted to present a setup that feels nur­tur­ing, di­verse but not forced, and re­laxed but still put to­gether.” STYLE IT “This look gives high re­gard to sim­plic­ity and items that you may al­ready have at home. Use ba­sic table­ware. If you want va­ri­ety, use plates with sub­tle col­ors, which can fur­ther high­light the food. Cre­ate tex­ture by us­ing ta­ble nap­kins with min­i­mal prints or DIY a place­mat made from ex­cess cork­board sheets. Pick small flow­ers or leaves in the gar­den to soften your ta­ble set­ting.” GOOD FOR “This easy ta­ble set­ting is best suited for fuss-free, re­laxed week­ends at home.” French Kitchen Mar­ble Salt and Pep­per Shaker, P899; Mar­ble Salt and Pep­per Cel­lar with Spoon, P729; Holmes 22-piece Flat­ware, P4,129; Lexie Metal­lic Nap­kin, P929 per set of 4; Suits Nap­kins, P2,449 per set of 4, all from Crate and Bar­rel • Bistro 28cm Din­ner Plate, P295; Ban­thanh 3 Can­dle Holder, P1,250; Etah Cop­per Bowl, P1,450; Coast Blue Side Plate, P790, all from Habi­tat
