Halloween pumpkin carving is usually about the orange and black, but this year let's make Halloween a little more stylish... and modern of course. Let's make it all about black, white and some bits of gold!
If you don't want to deal with the ooo-ey goo-ey mess of pumpkin guts, painting pumpkins is a great way to go! Create modern Halloween decor by styling your house with a monochromatic collection of either black or white pumpkins. Clusters of black and white modern outdoor chairs would be great on the front porch, making the cool pumpkins company!

Or, let the artist in you shine and go with gorgeous modern patterns, such as having black paint drip over a white pumpkion or the modern herringbone pattern. If you're looking for some inspiration for patterns, take a look at these images of modern gothic architecture (below).
The shapes and patterns found in Modern Gothic Architecture are sure to inspire some stylish Halloween decor! The gorgeous shapes found in the ceiling in the first image are breathtaking.
The silhouette of the Doimo in Milan (image 2) is quite eery against the dark cloudy sky. The negative and positive space in this photo is more than stunning and would be a striking work of art on your handpainted pumpkin! Inspiration from stained glass (image 3) is another great form of inspiration! This stained glass in Wim Delvoye's window is actually made out of x-rays. little creepy right?
Hope you're enjoying this fun holiday season! Make sure to make it stylish... and modern!
