Welcome to The Entertaining House. We do hope you'll pour yourself a cup of tea or a glass of wine and linger for a while!

I love color. I love colors. Bright. Happy. Energetic. Colors make me smile. Both in my outfits and in my home I need a splash of color. Don't get me wrong, I adore all white and I love black for it's sexy, demure and sublime qualities but color is where it's at (for me). Give me yellows and oranges, bright blues and greens, reds and hot pinks. Give them all to me, in splashes, in touches or in great big vats. When I moved to my new home in April I fell in love with the whiteness of it all... the crisp white trim, the soft off-white walls so wonderfully complemented the gorgeous hardwood floors and were immediately illuminated by the over-sized window in the living room where the sunlight danced in. White is beautiful. It is calm and serene, but it is not me. I need color. Big bold splashes of it. I will not repaint these walls but I will find other ways to add color back into our lives. Not pale, soothing color, but big, bold color! As you will see below there are so many ways to add color to your living space. Even a small amount can create a large pop! Paint the walls or not. Toss in some colorful pillows, rugs, or simply brighten the room with bold accessories and art. Whichever you choose to best reflect your own personal style, there are many ways to make your living space a colorful one!
