Make Picking Your Next Paint Colors a Treat, Not a Trick

We recently discussed how it can be fun (and productive) to draw inspiration from the season around us while picking new interior paint colors. Fall in particular is packed full of warm, earthy, inviting options that can be enjoyed year round on your walls. If you missed our article, take a look here!

Today, let’s talk about Halloween! Sure, it’s a spooky time of year, but it’s also one full of deep, brooding, beautiful colors.

Finding Paint Color Inspiration in Your Halloween Palette

Here are a few options that might just fit into your home eerily well…

#1 Witching Hour, from Benjamin Moore

It’s deep, dusky, and moody… This could be an ideal accent color, capitalizing on the popularity of dark interior paint.

#2 Knockout Orange – Sherwin-Williams

Orange is a staple of the fall/Halloween season (look no further than pumpkins, right?). It’s not limited, though, and offers a rustic, homey vibe that you can love during all the months between Halloweens as well. Switch up your decor a bit and this orange will take on a whole new life.

#3 Electric Lime – Sherwin-Williams

Does it look a little like Frankenstein’s monster’s complexion? Totally. Is it also a stylish color option that offers a touch of modern boldness? It definitely is! Just remember, this will energize your space (electricity tends to do that), so try it as a more limited accent first.

#4 Bewitched – Benjamin Moore

Is it plumb, pink, or red? Yes, yes, and yes. This classy, versatile color looks a little different in different lights, but offers a consistently attractive look for any season.

#5 Apple Cider – Benjamin Moore

You might think a color called Apple Cider would be red, or a deep brown, so the pinkish hue is a pleasant surprise. It could find a home in almost any room where you’d like to see a more modern spin on a traditional look.
