Spooky-chic, anyone? 6 ways to bring that Halloween spirit home
As far as favorite times of the year go, Halloween is high up on everyone’s list! The excitement is palpable, ‘cos it’s just around the corner and boy, are we ready to bring out those faux cobwebs, paper bats and pumpkins to give our homes a spine-chilling look that’s stylish too.
We’ve rounded up a bunch of home decor ideas for Halloween that are *hauntingly* simple to put together — so let’s get started. (cue: thunderstorm sound effect)
A batty wall
Cut out 3D bat-shaped silhouettes and embellish them on your wall in varied angles for a spooky twist. If you’ve got a fireplace or a stairway at home, you could adorn it with these paper bats, and finish off the look by propping a jack-o’-lantern below or beside it to amp up the eerieness.
Skulls can be sophisticated too
Welcome to Spooksville! We’re big fans of this fall-friendly pumpkin-filled fireplace that’s taken a mysterious turn with skull lamps and a little tombstone beside it. Placed against a classic-styled home, we love how this space is oozing spooky sophistication.
A grand centerpiece that screams ‘It’s Halloween season!’ is an absolute must-have, if you’re all about the festivities. You’ll need a few candles, pumpkins on a tray, pine cones and a vase full of faux flowers for a look that’s on-point. If you’re not the kind to go the whole hog, a centerpiece on your table will do the job to create a cozy Halloween focal point.
Door decor that’ll make your heart skip a beat
Surprise trick-or-treaters and unsuspecting passers-by in your neighborhood by hanging up this spine-tingling glow-in-the-dark skull poster over your door. You could also put up cutouts of a witch on a broomstick, surrounded by bats to welcome friends and family in quintessential Halloween style. We bet the result will leave you confused about whether your door looks cute or spooky!
In keeping with the theme of spooky welcomes, we adore this cheeky idea of placing a pair of witch boots with a cute note beside it. ICYMI, check out our fall-theme front porch ideas for more ways to make sure your entrance exudes the holiday spirit!
No tricks, just treats!
What’s Halloween without copious amounts of candy? Ensure jars and mugs in your home are brimming with treats; bonus points if they come in shades of autumn! Place them on your coffee table or the fireplace mantel. If you’re throwing a close-knit Halloween bash this year (since that’s what 2020 is all about!), we bet your guests will find it hard to keep their hands off these adorable candy jars.
Swap out your pillows and bed linen
This just in — spooky-chic is officially a thing. To ensure your home has a recurring Halloween theme that’s also stylish, trade your regular pillowcases for ones that fall into shades of autumn (pun intended!). Fully embrace the festive spirit by adding pillows adorned with pumpkin or wreath-shaped embroidery.
We guarantee these wicked (yet cute) ideas will turn your home into the perfect backdrop for that scary Halloween costume! Upload photographs of your Halloween-ready home before November 1 on Instagram and tag @casaoneus; we’ll make sure to re-share our favorite spooky-themed homes on our handle.
