With Halloween just a few days away, I decided to let one of my favorite holidays inspire this week’s Mood Board Monday. The traditional hues of the holiday have always been orange, black, white and yellow, but I like to take a more glam approach. My perfect Halloween palette is classic black with splashes of silver glitter or patches of metallics. Rather than integrating bursts of color, I love the idea of metals and sparkle breaking up a dark and mysterious background.

PS – I was also inspired by Grant‘s pitch for October’s Color of the Month. Remember his infamous “Marianne forgot to invite me to the Color of the Month meeting, but I can think fast on my feet and am going to pitch BLACK!” Pinterest board?

What are you favorite Halloween colors? Do you stay traditional or like to play with more modern palettes?

    I agree with you Kayla. I like the spots of glitter and metallics. It gives a more sophisticated look I think.

    This board is getting me in the mood for a fun and festive Halloween this year! I love white and black for this holiday, but don't mind throwing in a punch of color with orange or purple. :)

    Yay for black!

    P.S. Marianne did invite me to November's CotM meeting — so, all is forgiven.

  7. It’s awesome to pay a quick visit this website and reading the views of all friends
    concerning this article, while I am also keen of getting know-how.

  8. Do you need to buy GAP Insurance or an extended warranty.

    When in the Red your driver is feeling the need to be more aggressive,

    take turns more closely and shave every second he can to

    get further ahead, which uses more energy to control

    the car. The perks to purchasing a used car far surpass those of a new

    car purchase and will save you money in the long run.
