Year-Round Style: Black Walls for Halloween and Beyond

Do you decorate for Halloween? I mean, really decorate? Commit to the moment and go all out? If you’ve been thinking of jumping on the dark walls trend, now is the perfect time. Black walls are a dramatic and daring way to decorate. Since painting just for a holiday isn’t realistic, here are some great examples of black walls that are perfect for creating some non-spooky decor year-round, and that are easy to dress up for certain holidays.
