Best of: Eerie Rooms

by Garrett Fleming

If you have been following us in recent months, you know our team is all in on the all-black-everything trend. It’s evocative. It dares to make a statement and when paired with some of the spooky accessories you’ll see below, serves as a killer backdrop for some seriously eerie spaces. We’ve pulled together our moodiest, creepiest homes to prove that crafting the perfectly spooky space doesn’t always mean jack-o-lanterns, full moons and witches. –Garrett
