A Pop of Pumpkin

Fall is in the air here in New York City.  Although the weather has been warm, the breeze blowing through the City is unmistakably Autumn.  Golden, auburn and persimmon leaves swirl down the sidewalk in Tribeca, ghosts and ghouls adorn the trees and brownstone stoops in the West Village, and brightly hued pumpkins and seasonal squash decorate the tables and menus of restaurants on every corner.  As we approach the end of the month, specifically Halloween, I thought I would pay homage to the classic colors of orange and black.  If paired correctly, the fusion of orange and black doesn't always have to scream Halloween, and it is a lovely combination all the year 'round.

Clockwise starting from the top left:
1. A herringbone by Designers Guild, "Crawton" in "Zinnia"
2.  "Sally" in color "Pumpkin" by Schumacher
3.  A toile, "Tortuga" in color "Safran" by Manuel Canovas
4.  "Sunglass Print" in "Orange" by Schumacher
5. An ikat, "Sunburst Luce" by Madeline Weinrib Atelier
6.  "Arches Print" in color "Orange" by Schumacher

A primarily rusty orange bedroom with matte black accents by NYC designer Sara Story stays mostly neutral aside from the adventurous wallpaper.

The designer of this small dining space makes a statement by utilizing mostly black charcoals and grays and then slipping in hints of bright and bittersweet oranges.

Clockwise, starting from top left:

1. "Shockwave" in colorway "platinum & jet" by Schumacher
2.  A city scene, also by Schumacher, "New York, New York" in color "black & white"
3.  An ikat by Madeline Weinrib Atelier "Black Daphne"
4."Zebre Epingle" in "black/ecru", by Schumacher

Designer David Cafiero painted this living room a peachy-orange and then brought a more ruby-orange into the space through a vibrant patterned fabric.  Jet-black finishes give the pastel room a sleeker edge.

Designers Ethan Feirstein and Ari Heckman painted it black in their masculine bathroom and then chose russet bath towels and a mirror framed in an orangey wood to complete the look.
