A Wicked-Cool Color Palette

October 13, 2015

Moody black and warm copper accessories make for one eerily, elegant combination.

Black and orange—the official color combo of Halloween—scares us every year…and not in a good way. So to create a sophisticated setting at home that doesn’t look childish, turn to black and copper decor. Just swap out orange for rich copper accessories you’ll want to keep long past the holiday, then pair them with modern black designs. Your house will feel haunted, but in a haute way.
