Invite the spirit of Halloween into your home with stylish and spooky décor, from metallic pumpkins to flickering candles. Here’s how to transform your home into a haute haunted house so you can celebrate all month long.
Metallic home décor is trending, so why not choose metallic Halloween decorations? Shimmery black, bronzed orange, rose gold, silver, and gold are all perfect metallic tones for fall, especially in pumpkin form. Add metallic pumpkins liberally to your entryway, mantle, shelves, and dining room table to create a beautiful centerpiece. Glittered pumpkins are also gorgeous, as well as pumpkins in trendy accent colors – just mix and match them as you see fit. For a glitzy autumn vibe, bring in some metallic or mercury votive candles.
Black and White Fright
Black and white décor is a unique and a refreshing alternative to traditional black and orange Halloween décor. Place all-white pumpkins (choose from ceramic or plastic) around your home and throw in some all-black décor to create some chic contrast. If you have white walls, hang cute black bats on a string. Get a mix of black and white candles and lanterns and light them around your home for some glow. Is stark black and white a bit too harsh for your home? Choose darker grays and warmer, cream-colored décor instead, like skulls and antlers, to help create more of a cozy, rustic vibe.
To instantly add some Halloween spirit to every room, swap out your normal home décor and accents with spookier ones. For a pop of Halloween color in your living room, bring in orange throw pillows, or trendy Halloween-printed pillows, and add a black or gray blanket for your couch. In your bedroom, trade your throw pillows in for Halloween-printed ones (black cats are super cute for kids!). Swap your dinnerplates and kitchen linens out for Halloween-themed ones, especially if you’re throwing a Halloween party. And lastly, for your bathroom, bring in Halloween-themed soap dispensers, hand towels, candles, and other décor so your whole home is Halloween-ready. Feeling playful? Place silly and scary props like potion bottles, broomsticks, and skeletons all around your home for extra kid-approved fun.
Decorating for Halloween is such a fun-filled way to switch up the tone of your home for the season. You can go light with just a few decorative pumpkins, or you can go all the way and transform your entire home into a haunted house – there’s no wrong way to get into the Halloween spirit!
