Happy October! Bring on the oranges, blacks, purples and greens. One of my favorite parts about the October season is the darker color schemes to introduce some spook-lite and pumpkin inspired decor for Halloween.
Halloween is like one of the last outdoor social activities before the temperature drops, and feels like winter is coming. While Halloween is a blast to celebrate, October is riddled with such beauty and mystery there is a lot that can make an October Bucket List.
