    DIY dark drama: Get the look for Halloween

    Halloween notoriously favours tones of the dark variety; think vibrant oranges, inky blacks and forest greens, which coincide with the color trends that are set to take the interiors world by storm in 2017.  While this year’s colors of choice are still in vogue, the design world is flirting with a new palette that will be revamping rooms in the next 12 months. 

    Dark is the new light, with pastels being switched out in favour of deeper, richer tones which can provide a slice of mystery and intimacy that paler tones can lack – perfect for Halloween, too. But what are these colors and how can you use them in your interiors? It’s time to bring dark colors out of the shadows and install them into your home for a glamourous, dramatic style. 

    Mustard yellows  

    While high-voltage yellow was the go-to tone for 2016, the new year will edge towards a mustard shade. With its soft orange undertones, the color makes for a perfect autumnal accent shade that will work throughout 2017, too. Rather than splash across your walls, look to use mustard yellows in your accessories, such as a feature chair or statement lamp to really make your interior pop. 


    Orange accents 

    Halloween’s official color is set to feature on interior hotlists next year – so why not incorporate it this October, just in time for this year’s ghoul-fest? Orange is versatile and can add an element of warmth and energy to any room. Pick dusky apricot for a softer take on the trend, blood orange for a hue reminiscent of a dramatic sunset or terracotta for a rustic, earthy vibe. Team with simple ivory, stormy black or chocolate brown shades for a sophisticated yet contrasting style.

    Rich greens 

    Bring the outdoors in with dark green hues. Emerald, forest green shades are must-haves for your next DIY interiors project, and help to inject a sense of opulence and glamour to any room. Create a feature wall with botanical wallpaper, add texture with a shag rug or upholster your favourite chair in the bold shade. Pair with velvet accessories and work with a grey, white or black palatte to nail the ultimate dramatic look that fits Halloween’s haunting style as well.

    Dark florals 

    Forget everything you thought you knew about florals – next year they’re getting a dark makeover. Bright spring-like patterns and chintz styles may have once been the preferred option for designers and interior lovers alike, but that’s all about to change. Black is being married with muted pinks, creams and greens to create a glamourous, gothic look. Stay ahead of the trend by installing a series of moody canvas prints in your living room.
