RL Picks: A Romantic Dining Room

Have a dinner to remember with today's product picks


Give your dining area a new romantic touch with today's product picks. As an extra tip, interior designer and floral stylist Leo Almeria shares --- "Match your centerpiece to the occasion. Always create something that is appropriate. Know for whom the arrangement is, for what occasion, where it is going to be placed, and what materials you have on hand."

Picks by Paula de Guzman and Tala Singson. Photographed by Vincent Coscolluela, Paolo Feliciano, and Kurt Alvarez/ACME Visual Productions.
