Happy October! With “spooky season” in full swing, we’re feeling inspired by an enchanting and timeless hue: Onyx. Due its’ versatility and ability to bring the drama, Onyx is a classic black that never goes out of style. We love Onyx because of its’ ability to allow other colors to pop, while also being able to steal the show all on its’ own. Read on for our design tips on how to use Onyx this month.

A great way to create an impactful design with Onyx is by combining it with metallic hues, botanicals, or bold citrus colors. This space designed by Michelle Murphy of DemiRyan brings several colorful elements into play by combining them with Onyx.

An accent wall in Onyx is a creative way to add some drama into your décor. If a wall has hangings or shelving, putting a dark hue like Onyx works to create an enchanting backdrop that enhances your space.

Onyx elements in a space  add a level of mystery and sophistication. If a room feels like it’s missing that “it” factor, do up the drama with dark hues. We love the option of using Onyx hues in creative ways, like peel and stick wallpaper. We're loving Rad Plaid for fall as well. Fall and flannel might be one of the most iconic duos of all time. While you're reaching for your favorite fall wardrobe pieces, shouldn't your home get in on the seasonal swap?

When Onyx meets a soft colored space, it instantly adds an element of dimension and style. Uplift a room that has cream colored accents and white walls with Onyx accessories and furniture. This space uses Onyx consoles, decorative objects and throw pillows to add depth and a bit of edge, contrasting the softer accents in the space. And of course we can't ignore that wallpaper. This space has that modern-eclectic look we love.
