Below are a few dark moody interiors which are slightly horrifying but are perfect for those who like a year-round Halloween mood with no need to specifically decorate the house for Halloween.

To achieve a noirish effect, consider painting your wood floors with high performance, marine-grade Hollandlac Paint from Fine Paints of Europe. For a super-shiny look, top with a marine-grade clear varnish. We like black for the floors and Espresso for the walls.
The mirrored tiles on the stairs really speak to me. I love the juxtaposition with the older elements
I remember seeing the superb house at top - so beautiful. The glossy dark floors are really appealing and the gloss actually makes them quite cheerful. I agree with Karen, the black and brown together almost amount to a monochrome, the way cream and white do. The uniformity of the background lets the objects (that incredible standard lamp) pop out. And those unusual chandeliers!
Those dark colors are really divine. I have been obsessing over those bubble glass fixtures and now, even more! Plus that staircase, while it wouldn't work in my house, I love the idea. Great post!
I love the dark colours, as much as I love all white interiors. But I think it's the purity of a consistent colour palette that I like. I want to take the leap and do a charcoal foyer - any colour and paint recommendations?
