Embracing the Dark Side: Halloween Inspired Designs in Home and Fashion

This week, as Halloween approaches, we are drawing inspiration from a spooky colour palette. There are no tricks here, but we’re discovering all the treats from our designers and makers by embracing the dark side with a palette inspired by deepest black and pumpkin orange.

While there are no skeletons in our closet you may well find a beautiful tailored trench coat by Stable of Ireland or a stunning handmade leather bag by Holden Leathergoods in classic black.

Meanwhile we’re keeping away ghosts and ghouls by lighting up with sophisticated light fittings by Mullan Lighting.
