Happy Halloween!

Colors, Inspiration, Thumbs Up

For Halloween, here are a few arresting, interesting, stunning dark spaces. Halloween decor easily gets tacky, but these tricks / spaces have wider appeal. Enjoy!

Nina had an understated but elegant idea for a table:

Found via Husligheter. (Oh good grief, my brain just went there – “Nana nana nana nana bat fork!” 😀 )

Black & white & wood in a kitchen:

Happy Halloween!

P.S. Three additional links: Nicole Balch (from Making it Lovely) created a fantastic feature on dark walls for Babble. There’s also a great collection of photos of a converted public library and a set of interiors with black & gold at Desire to Inspire. Check them out!

P.P.S. Two additional spaces at my Playfully Grownup Tumblr. This is my official self-promotional moment for the day. 🙂
