Goulish Glamour

Stylist Paul Lowes wildly successful blog Sweet Paul, dished up some stunning black on black Halloween decor ideas for Fall. Flat black paint highlights the cracks and crevices of a perfectly shaped pumpkin. Perfect for lighting subtlety alone, or part of a larger display. The tablescape is gorgeous with a tonal composition of blacks. Notice the contrast of sheen from the flat finish of the cups, lovely linen napkins and interesting visual form of the pewter salt shaker, in contrast to the reflectivity of the plates, candlesticks and glassware. These subtle choices within a monochromatic palette creates sparkle and depth. A Halloween Treat for the eyes! I believe this technique is applicable to any dramatic setting, be it a holiday or new years table, black tie event, or even a romantic dinner for two.
