Avoid flowers with too strong or too sweet a fragrance like hyacinths and violets. They will interfere with the dining experience.
The Art of Entertaining
Keep the composition neither so small it gets lost nor so big it prevents guests from looking at each other. The best parties always have great spaces for guests to mix and mingle. Instead of crowding in the kitchen, make use of all areas of your home including the patio space and great room. The choice of copper walls came about by accident.

I asked the salesperson for nineteen gallons. He said, Are you crazy?

It's liquid copper leaf, and it comes in two-ounce jars. Allem was so enthusiastic about the copper leaf that he suggested they carry the color through to the dining room. The s Chinese rug, in shades of rust, jade, peach and teal, was the inspiration behind the fabric choice.
Parsons chairs are upholstered in olive-green velvet. The draperies are the same as in the living room, only this time sienna is paired with teal silk. The ebony table expands from fifty-four inches round to a large oval and can seat twelve. Because the space opens up to the living room and the entrance hall, it's also perfect for buffets. Anyone who likes to entertain would be happy to have two dining options, but the dining room is Cowie's stage. I have a square that fits on top of the dining table, which gets covered with a velvet cloth in cognac.
I also have a silver mirrored top and a copper mirrored one. Guests never get the same thing twice.

A sitting room was created for pre-dinner drinks and after-dinner entertaining. The only cognac found in this room would be in a brandy snifter. Instead, there are hues of ruby red and burgundy.

Allem views the transition of color as a seamless one. By using the same tones, you get an embryo effect that makes people feel secure. Colin's apartment goes from cognacs to oranges to greens and to red. Orange and red is a great combination. For the sitting room, the designer found a suite from the Normandie , which he covered in rouge velvet that has the feel and texture of mohair.
The focal point of the space is a s English cocktail cabinet. In the master bedroom, Cowie chose olive-green velvet for the upholstered pieces. The floor-to-ceiling tufted headboard lends more than a hint of drama to the room: It also blocks out a window that Cowie thought had a less than stellar view. The fireplace, which hadn't been used in decades, was put back into commission and received a black-lacquered mantel like the one in the living room.

First stop was a lesson in the kitchen, where we learned the fine art of panelle. Panelle are Sicilian fritters made from chickpea flour that are often eaten on a roll, but we tasted au naturelle 'cause we like our kitchen radical. As with every successful beauty routine, what makes panelle taste like heaven is the oil, which needs to be just right in terms of quantity and consistency.
But really every woman worth her panelle in Palermo knows how to make these with her eyes closed. Caponata is another delicacy that had us walking on air, though realistically half of us were slumped on couches after a 5 hour eating act.
Last but not least are cannoli , pastries with a sweet ricotta filling that are said to be portals to the heavens. Palermo, we discovered, is a small enough town to walk across on your darling foot. Legendary ladies here marry men with good taste.
