Artist Christine Claringbold and her husband Charles certainly are not shy when it comes to putting a little color in their 1924 bungalow.

This fun couple takes great pleasure in living in a kaleidoscope of saturated hues and explosive patterns.

Chuck & Christine (aka “The ‘Bolds”) have been playing music together in bands since 1996.

Christine, who has made her living as an artist for over 20 years, views the medium of paint as a “living entity.”

She creates colorful mandalas, psychedelic murals, vinyl clock art, and paints on objects such as guitars and old suitcases.

Christine & Chuck have infused this love – nay, obsession – with color throughout their historic home.

Portland can be a little depressing with its grey, rainy climate. So why not indulge in a celebration of vibrant color?

The use of vintage mugs hung from the kitchen ceiling is especially innovative. It’s a great space-saver and a unique way to display their collection.
