TROPIC TOPIC

Real Living (Philippines) - - Rl Entertains - by KAMILA GAR­CIA, editorial as­sis­tant

“I wanted the look of my ta­ble set­ting to be a re­flec­tion of my­self. I chose a trop­i­cal but laid-back style be­cause, like the waves of the ocean and the fresh breeze of the beach, I live by go­ing with the flow and en­joy­ing what life has to of­fer.”

STYLE IT “Cop this ta­ble set­ting by in­cor­po­rat­ing trop­i­cal el­e­ments—think of na­ture, sand, ocean, and the sun! Start by work­ing with a color pal­ette fea­tur­ing neu­tral tones with ac­cents of bright hues of oranges, blues, and greens. Add tex­ture to off­set plain, white din­ner and salad plates by us­ing nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als such as a rat­tan charger plate and ham­mer-fin­ished uten­sils. In­clude plants that scream trop­i­cal as they in­ject a fresh vibe while adding bursts of vivid col­ors.”

GOOD FOR “This ta­ble set­ting is per­fect for sweet, ca­sual din­ner dates by the beach. Add some can­dles for a more in­ti­mate affair.” Arte­sia Charger, P699; La­gos Dou­ble Old Fash­ioned, P279; Fete Moss Cot­ton Nap­kin, Miguel All-pur­pose Wine Glass, P749; Boul­der 20-piece Flat­ware, P2,279, all from Crate & Bar­rel • Bistro 28cm Din­ner Plate, P295; Bistro Salad Plate, P250; Heloise Bowl Red Tomato, P270; Abi Square Trivet, P895, all from Habi­tat • Pot­ted Trop­i­cal Plant, P149.75; Stemmed Plant, P179.75, both from SM Home • Pat­terned Dis­pos­able Ta­ble Nap­kins, P99, H&M Home
