For the month of August, Rustan’s will be celebrating the best of France, Italy, and Spain with their latest “Romancing the Mediterranean” campaign.
Rustan’s Home will be holding a series of workshops in the next couple of weeks. Catch them at Breville Kitchen Workshop and A Mediterranean Affaire Launch at Rustan’s Shangri-La on August 12, Nemox Gelato Demonstration on August 13, Bugatti Vento Blender Workshop on August 14, Patron x Lalique Event at Rustan’s Makati on August 26, and at Rustan’s Cebu on August 27.
For every purchase from participating Mediterranean brands, you can earn a raffle coupon, and get the chance to sail away to the crisp cerulean seas of the Mediterranean aboard Crystal Cruises. Another luxurious treat up for grabs is a 3D/2N stay at Shangri-La at the Fort.
You know you’ve officially crossed over to tita territory when you’re asked to style a Mediterranean-inspired vignette for the home. Of course, in line with my own recent engagement, I did a Provence-inspired table setting for two, using Rustan’s French brands Cristofle, Bernardaud, Lalique, etc.
I went with a bird motif, dove gray tones (my fave!), and fragrant lavenders. I also decided to add in some clear elements as a modern touch to provide contrast to the classic French tableware. Can you spot Lumiere? I was asked to a French table setting. I just had to!
Meanwhile, Bride & Breakfast did a wonderful Italian-inspired vignette in their signature rustic style, while couple Pia Ugarte and Pacholo Morreira created a Spanish-inspired vignette that can easily pass off as the subject of a still life painting.
Feel free to drop by a take photos of/with our vignettes and tag us on social media!
