Getting Spooky and Stylish for Halloween

 

Whether or not you go all out on decorating for Halloween, you don’t have to compromise your style to welcome the season into your home.

 
As we firmly step into fall and its crisp mornings, the time of the year when frightening vibes are more than welcomed is right upon us, and whether or not you go all out on decorating for Halloween, you don’t have to compromise your style to welcome the season into your home.  
 
While most Halloween merchandise is designed for kids and their entertainment, it only takes a little bit of creativity and imagination to celebrate this spooky holiday at home without sacrificing your style. From simple bowls and candles to wreaths and small decorative pieces, there are countless ways to give your space a spooky yet sophisticated update.  
 
Start by welcoming (and frightening!) your neighbours and guests by displaying a group of carved pumpkins on your porch and a Halloween-decorated wreath on your front door. You can get as creative as you like and incorporate different elements such as black crows, spiders, owls, skeletons and spider webs on your lawn or on the windows.
 
As for your interiors, you don’t have to go over the top to add some drama. Switch up your everyday linens and dish towels for Halloween-themed ones (plain all-black or orange would also work); dress up your mantels with spooky elements like plastic spiders, dark-coloured candles and paper garlands; use clear bowls and containers to display candy and treats around your home; and make a statement by grouping spooky pieces like black crows, cats or skulls in a corner in your living room.
 
Remember, sprucing up your home for Halloween is supposed to be fun, so keep in mind that tasteful decorating tricks and ideas can go a long way toward making your home frightfully entertaining, while adhering to your current décor scheme.
