Word for 10/25 – Welcoming

I was not finding any inspiration from my picture library on my computer, or around my house for the word “welcoming“.  I  don’t have welcome sign on my door or a cute doormat.  I don’t even have a pineapple, a symbol of hospitality & welcome,  around my home.

But I was looking once again through the photos I took last week in Boston & it dawned on me — the full service restaurant at the MFA had changed its decor some.  


This is the new gray based color scheme. The banquets are cozy.  It looks & feels upscale.

Flashback to a photo of the same restaurant taken in April.  The columns used to be orange. The positioning of tables & chairs was  very different.  The decor was less plush.

But which would you judge more welcoming?  I felt that the orange drew me in at arrival.  However the gray plush redo makes me relax & feel welcome to linger over my meal.

Have a reaction to share?  I’m welcoming you to do so.

  1. I have to agree with you, the gray colour scheme looks much more welcoming. To me, it looks like someone’s dining room in a well decorated home. The orange makes me think of a restaurant….possibly one that has a decent kids menu. 🙂

    • New thought based on your reply “decent kids menu” — Howard Johnson’s (HoJo’s) orange — the chain may have died before you were old enough to remember.

      • Dear friend, I love you for thinking of me so young. lol…I do, indeed, recall that restaurant in the hotel chain. 🙂 (Mind you, I’m more than happy to play 20-something for as long as I’m able to convince people!)
