Seasonal décor tips for a spooky but chic home

Monday Sep 23rd, 2019


From costumes and candy to jack-o-lanterns and scary flicks, Halloween has something exciting around every corner—and it isn’t your tired decorations from 1980. This year make sure your trick-or-treaters are greeted on a doorstep that’s more spooky than sad with these fresh and fun Halloween décor ideas.

Gore—but make it glam. Skulls can still be spooky if you give them a little makeover. Refresh those old skeletons with a DIY costume jewelry addition, or shop around for your new favourite glammed-out accent piece. Pearls, diamonds, gold mask; the options are endless for bejeweled skulls.

Pretty and prim pumpkins. This year is all about painted, not carved, pumpkins — adding a splash of fabulous fun. Play with metallics, pastels or the traditional Halloween colours like black and orange but add some sparkle into the mix for an extra pretty pattern. The pumpkin is your blank canvas, have some fun. 

Light it up—non-jack-o-lantern style. With the cooling weather, candles, fires and lights are always in style. This year add a little twist to those traditional fall lighting staples by opting for black candles for your dining room table, wired lights in glass pumpkins or jars, or super-spooky fire log skulls.

Tarot cards and palmistry. Palmistry and tarot cards are all the rage, and for this season finding exciting ways to incorporate them into your fall décor is a must. Try adding palmistry paintings, tarot card coasters or even books to your coffee table for a divine new look.
