In honor of Halloween, we’ve decided to spare you the pumpkins and skeletons and round up our favorite rooms and products that incorporate the hue of the holiday: black! (Apologies if you were hoping for orange.)

While the bold design move isn’t for everyone, we personally love the drama and moodiness that black paint and decor can add to a room, and wish more people would take the risk.

Spooky Style, Sans Pumpkin

Black paint can take a space from bleak to chic in no time, whether its used on an accent wall in your living room, a high gloss finish on your office built-ins, or as the all-over color in your powder room.

We’ve compiled our ten favorite rooms that feature the moody hue to provide all the inspiration you need to try the bold trend. So if your Halloween plans are lackluster or non-existent, we highly recommend grabbing a can of black paint and going to town on a wall or two.

If paint feels too permanent, don’t worry, we’ve also compiled some of our favorite black furniture and decor pieces to help you get the moody look in a less commitment-heavy way. These products are an easy way to infuse some drama into your space and are sure to work with any colors you might already have. Added bonus: we’re pretty sure black is never going out of style.
