The Mediterranean is not just a region in Europe; it is an entire ethos on food, family, culture, design and life. The Mediterranean ‘method’ combines the best elements of the region’s diverse cultures and customs to create a rich and inviting sensibility.
No matter where you live you can easily incorporate facets of Mediterranean style into your home. One of the best ways to bring the Mediterranean home is by ‘setting the table’ and combining the best of Mediterranean cuisine with stylish home décor.
As the weather continues to get warmer and warmer now is the ideal time to embrace the al fresco method of dining and entertaining.

Look into the ‘heart’ of the Mediterranean and you may well find olive oil and vinegar coursing through its every vein, valve and chamber. They are two of the region’s most recognised, treasured and widely used exports. No Mediterranean table setting is complete without a pair of high-quality olive oil and vinegar at its centre.
At Stylodeco we are proud to offer Chef Nicholas Vahé’s exclusive line of Olive Oil and Vinegar. Whether you are making appetizers, enjoying a main course or indulging in a luscious desert your Mediterranean meal will surely call for a flavourful dash of olive oil and vinegar.
The Mediterranean’s unique geography and climate make it without question home to the finest wine regions in the world. From France and Italy to Spain, Greece and, even Croatia the variety and quality of wine from this region are simply incomparable.
Although wine is most often associated with the Mediterranean way of life it is not the only drink on the table (so to speak). Coffee and tea have a long and important history in the Mediterranean region. Actually, the social and artistic culture associated with coffeehouses dates back to 14th century Turkey. In Mediterranean countries coffee and tea are enjoyed and savoured any time of the day.
While coffee is most often associated with the Mediterranean region if you have ever visited Turkey, Morocco or Tunisia you know that tea is not simply another drink. It is an essential element of daily life and a symbol of friendship, hospitality and tradition. Tea, especially mint tea, is the perfect way to start a conversation, end a meal or relax after a full day.
Serve your next cup of Mediterranean-inspired tea in style with Bloomingville’s Barbara Teapot and Mugs (see above picture).
