Let’s face it – Halloween is one of the best times of the year, whether you’re looking to dress up as your favourite horror icon or want to host a chilling Halloween party. As the new season creeps in, new interior designs emerge, more stylish and unique than the year before.
If you’re looking to transform your own home into a spooky, chic haunted house, check out our top 5 Halloween interior designs that you’ll die for (not literally).
New colour palettes
Black and orange are just so boring! Step up your game by incorporating some non-traditional colour schemes and try experimenting with a more sophisticated palette. Other colours that interior designers recommend are emerald greens, deep purples, and midnight blues to create a more suave and elegant Halloween ambience.
These unconventional Halloween colour choices can provide an unusual twist on stereotypical Halloween decor, setting your home apart from the rest of the crowd.
If you have a fireplace in your home, this could become the perfect centerpiece to display a variety of pumpkins, candles and decorations.
As fireplaces are usually in the middle of the living room, they can be an eye-catching space to create the perfect spooky display. However, be creative when considering placement. For example, by placing taller candles at the back and shorter candles at the front, you can create an eerie setting. You can even utilise autumn-type flowers, and other decorations to create a captivating Halloween display.
Another great way to transform your home into a spooky leir is to simply swap in some ominous artwork. Consider dark portraitures or black-and-white canvas prints to match the rest of your home. Pair with velvet curtains and luxe materials such as faux fur, marble or brass for the ultimate Halloween effect.
We mentioned candles on the fireplace, but also hanging faux candles directly from your ceiling above your dining table, entryway, or fireplace is a big step up. You can DIY this look with a thin line of string, a hot glue gun, and the fake candles of your choice, or you can buy and hang a pre-made set. Consider colours as we mentioned earlier – deep purples and dark blues.
And finally, if you’re planning on utilising your dining table for Halloween, consider weaving black or dark-coloured feathers, rather than just plain old cobweb drapes to make your setting more chic and sophisticated. These could work by either sticking them to other decorations, or be placed alone on tablescapes, bookshelves, consoles, and other furniture.
