As this year’s All Hallows’ Eve approaches, rumours are rife that there’s a new cocktail in town that’s set to tear up the town with its stylish sensibilities. Well, folks, it’s true and the colour cocktail takes inspiration from the seasonal gourds of the moment. The Pumpkin Smash mixes up a refined palette of slate grey and gunmetal, with an added shot of spicy tangerine and pumpkin accents. For those who prefer their schemes on the calmer side, I would opt for a one shot version. However, for those who like to go all out on Halloween and in their decorating, you’ll want to order the triple shot version of The Smash. The stronger cocktail is made by accenting the elegant and refined grey notes with a heady mix of pumpkin-hued pendants, accessories and textiles. One shot or triple shot, this cocktail hits the right note for the season by bringing a welcome warmth to the cooler days.

  1. funny I was never a big fan on Halloween but now I maybe convinced thanks to your sophisticated take on this “trick or treat” season. Love that rug!!

  2. every time I read this column I want to use the cocktail of colors in my house … what can I do?? Great post dear Will!

  3. I like the sound of the pumpkin smash 🙂 I never used to like orange much, but after this year, with tangerine being the colour for 2012, I have become quite smitten. That light shade is divine, and love your sofa pick too. x

  4. It's such a happy color! I will paint my front door some day in that color! for now, I am sticking to pumpkin comforters, cushions and throws. And, oh I loved that bedside table.

  5. I love touches of orange to brighten up my Swedish grey interiors. Usually it's orange tulips, roses, etc. Loving the IBM clock….will check out your source ~ cheers, Loi

  6. Orange is such a statement colour love some of these little pops of colour!
    Have a fun filled Halloween Wil and a great weekend.
