How easy it is to get in the Autumn spirit by just adding a few pumpkins outside your door, but what about when those ghosts and gobblins come a’calling (and I’m not talking about the relatives for upcoming holidays — unless you like), and you want your interior decor to reflect your post-Halloween and fall color sensibility?
Here are a few inspirational ways to get the look of this fall, cozy, fire-burning, colored-leaf season, while still keeping it bold, modern and hip.
If you have a lot of painted paneling in your space, don’t let that stop you, for orange can be just the right color to make it fresh and bold and balanced.
Granted this would be a major investment and I’m not suggesting it for a quick, easy solution but something about the color orange in a kitchen and especially on these Poggenpohl type (I’m guessing) cabinets makes me happy.
Use orange accessory accents paired with its blue complement or another color.
Here are a few more home accent accessories.
If you want to interject a little black, being so close to Halloween, I was very taken with this write-on-chalk-board pendant light called Chalkboard Peter by John Beck Paper and Steel and featured recently in House Beautiful. What a clever concept.
Orange actually works well as a complement and standout accent color when paired with black as seen in these two example that I just found just in time, in this week’s idea books on Houzz from sheilaschmitz‘s post, Orange and Black: Can Halloween Colors be Glam? Yes, I think they can.
And of course, Casart coverings orange Faux Linen and our new orange Birds and Birch design to be offered on our website soon are both repositionable wallcoverings, so can be used seasonally with the option to remove and reuse, if you like.
Orange happens to be one of my favorite colors, so I could easily live with is all year long, but for now, I’ll think of all those pumpkins on my porch for Halloween greeting those ghosts and goblins and witches.
