Inspiration in Unusual Places – Halloween

Inspiration in Unusual Places – Halloween

With Halloween right around the corner, ghosts and pumpkins, ghouls and goblins, orange and black, lowly lit rooms and mirrors come to mind. Don’t be fooled though, great design inspiration for an all-year-round space can come from this quirky holiday!

The dark walls and soft lighting of this powder room seem as though this would be the setting for a scene in a scary movie, but when used in a home, it gives this room a feeling of luxury and richness.

The black furniture, metallic lamp and candlestick accents juxtaposed with the reclaimed wood flooring and paneling add the perfect touch of shine to this room. The glow of the candles and the black bird sculpture are perfectly sophisticated Halloween decor.

This very traditional space is very elegant with it’s white lacquered walls, velvet upholstery, large antique cabinet and the delicate crystal chandelier.

In the library, with the candlestick… The black cabinetry and paneling give this room a very dramatic feel and the silver sconces, art lamps, and articulating desk lamp make the room come alive.

Reminiscent of a creature of sorts, this contemporary and sculptural lamp creates a soft, eerie glow but suites the space nicely by contrasting the rough finish of the wood and sturdy brick.

Take the traditional Halloween colors – orange and black – use them tastefully in a space and you will end up with a lovely modern space like this!

This black embossed wallpaper is evocative of something you would see in an old haunted mansion and immediately fall in love with! This and the collection of great antiques create the character of this room.

    Love the bold color. It amazes me what an effect it can have upon a room and home when done properly. It certainly takes than just “guts” (excuse the Halloween pun) to pull off, but also the right expertise. Thanks for sharing. The photos are fantastic.
