Fade to Black: 13 Subtle, Stylish Ways to Get in the Spirit of All Hallows’ Eve

October 28, 2019

Wearing a lot of black will never be thought of as bold. Chic, maybe, but not bold. Black in the home, though? That’s a different story. Black furniture, black painted walls, black floors—those choices are bold, especially in an era when Scandi sensibility and white interiors are de rigueur.
