Décor Dictionary: Refectory Table

Refectory Table: a very long and narrow table with trestle-like legs which are joined by a low-slung stretcher. It was originally used as dining tables in the refectory, or rather dining hall, of monasteries during the medieval era. Secular use of the table spread to the Mediterranean and the rest of Europe during the late 16th century.

Happy Mother’s Day


A VERY happy, blessed and restful day to all our mothers on this Mother’s Day.

No language can express the power, and beauty, and heroism, and majesty of a mother’s love. It shrinks not where man cowers, and grows stronger where man faints, and over wastes of worldly fortunes sends the radiance of its quenchless fidelity like a star.” ~Edwin Hubbell Chapin

Take A Scent Journey This Mother’s Day


By Marica

Want to spoil your mom or wife with something completely out of the ordinary this Mother’s Day? Well, this year we have got just the thing!

Every year Rose and I try to source a different activity or gift to feature for Mother’s Day. AND every year we get stuck for ideas! I mean, flowers, chocolates, breakfast in bed… been there, done that. BORING.

Not this year! Gift your mom with a unique and unforgettable “scent experience”. And before you ask – I’m not talking about shop bought perfume (how passé) – this idea is all together more exciting and individual. A Mother’s Day perfume MAKING workshop!

During the 2.5hr perfume making session, hosted by Diana Rankin of Perfume Power, you and your mommy dearest will be able to choose from exotic fragrances and essential oils to create your very own bespoke signature scents. How exciting! I would love to do this with my mom.

Perfume Power also sell these awesome perfume gift sets called “Scent Journeys”. Rose purchased one of these and they smell SO lovely – I can always tell when she’s dabbed some on. It is really an interesting concept – each kit contains 12 perfume vials which each fall into various fragrance families. This way you can wear a different scent every day and easily identify which fragrance best suites your mood, personality and lifestyle. I think I am also going to purchase one of these babies for myself.

You can find out more about the Perfume Power workshops: here. Additionally you can purchase their Scent Journey Perfume Kits online: here.
