Just as my winter holiday decor never involves red-and-green, I can't get into the traditional Halloween orange-and-black color scheme. But this! Peony, ivory, and almost-black navy are devilishly delightful.
With colors this pretty (from Little Dwell for ReadyMade), I would put up my Halloween decorations the 1st of October, and only take them down reluctantly once the day has passed. I probably won't get my act together in time for this Halloween, but I plan on stocking up on supplies in this color palette for next year: tissue paper, crepe paper, streamers, ribbon, metallic craft paper, etc. All cheap, all perfect for easy garlands and more.
Do you have a favorite sophisticated Halloween color combination? How do you use it?
