There's just something so fun about fall. The days are crisp, the nights seem a little darker, and there's a spooky feeling in the air. we're really feeling the Halloween vibes this month and that's the inspiration behind the Color of the Month for October: Licorice!

The color licorice is also known as light black. it's not quite as stark as true black and has lighter greyish-blue tones to it. Think of it as a coal black with raven undertones that is a little deeper than a charcoal gray. it's often associated with mystery, power, strength, and sophistication.

Licorice tends to work best as an accent color. Since it's quite dark, it can be a bit too overwhelming as an allover wall color. It is perfect as an accent wall to add some drama to a room, or for painted furniture accents. It pairs well with lighter colors with warm undertones like light tan, but can also work well with crisp white for a high contrast look.
