Make a strong statement with inky black and linen white chevron walls. Many shy away from big pattern when picking paint combinations, but we say go for it. Perfect for an entry hall or a bathroom, the look is both cheerful and welcoming for guests. A darling ghosts and goblin color combo, don’t you think?

People have strong feelings about orange. So we just want to put it out there loud and clear—we love it. This spicy nutmeg warms up a living room with a splash of leopard and beautiful hardwoods. So cozy, this looks like the absolute ideal place for cup of coffee and a great book!

Ok, so you already know we love black and white chevron (guilty) but this combination of the wide stripes, black walls and an industrial light fixture? Superb! Don’t shy away from a black wall. They’re back in vogue and combined with bright gold metallic accents, it’s a big look but we know you can pull it off.

Oh pumpkin, you’re wonderful in our pancakes, coffee and so much more. So, why not our walls? This saturated pumpkin orange is beautiful year round. And did you know, orange is thought to be the color of adventure and creativity? So when you pick up this year’s pumpkin from the farmer’s market, take another look at it—hmm, how would that color look in your office?

Talk about a dramatic kitchen. The black windows, doors and ceiling create visual unity while the stainless steel appliances reflect the light from these gorgeous windows. A black ceiling can be tough to pull off—try it in a room with a lot of light like this one and keep the rest of your decor neutral to maximize the look.

So, what do you think? Would you try a Halloween-inspired paint color scheme? Pumpkin, ghost or black midnight?
