I love seeing how creative people get when decorating their home or office for Halloween. I’ve seen elaborate decorations where people go all out and include life sized skeletons and witches with creepy skulls, bats, and ghosts in their indoor and outdoor decor. How do you plan on celebrating Halloween this year? If you need some suggestions, here are a few stylish and chic, yet eery ideas for incorporating Halloween home decor that will wow your guests for years to come.
Skull Door Knocker & Wreath
Create a memorable first impression with your guests at the front entrance with an elegant wreath surrounded in a swirl of black feathers and a mischievous skeleton. Add a chic skull door knocker embellished with intricate and metallic silver accents with a black and silver ring that guests can actually use to knock on your door. It will create a stylish and fun impression on your guests.
Optical Illusion Mirror
Hang an optical illusion mirror in an elegant Gothic style frame that gives the appearance of an infinite tunnel of lights that stretches into the great beyond. This is a stylish and chic mirror that you can use year round, and not just during the holiday season. It switches from a reflective surface to an interior optical illusion.
Next to the optical illusion mirror, display insect wall plaques of a beetle, butterfly, spider or a fly. Each specimen looks so realistic with it’s body covered in a brightly colored polyresin and a framed eye at its center watching your every move. It looks like they might crawl right down the wall and onto you, which makes it quite creepy when displayed as a collection. If you want something a bit more colorful, hang artwork of a skull surrounded by vibrant colors.
You can’t celebrate Halloween without pumpkins in your home decor. Place a large painted resin pumpkin topiary like this entryway stacking pumpkin from McKenzie-Childs in your entry way, add pumpkin cloches on your windowsill or fireplace mantel, or include pumpkin patterned throw pillows on your sofa or accent chairs.
Decorate your dining table or breakfast table with stylish and chic table runners such as this embroidered table runner featuring a Halloween village scene. It adds a charming and cozy feel to your Halloween home décor.
Or this Jack-o’-Lantern table runner that lights up!
Want to add a touch of eeriness and creepiness to your home decor? How about pillow covers that feature the silhouette of a screaming face pressed against the surface or a hand imprint? These pillows look so realistic and is sure to scare your guests sitting on the sofa. Bring it up a notch with a few eyeball orbs staring up at your visitors. Put them in a bowl on your coffee table and the effect is nothing less than eye-popping!
Let me know how you plan to decorate your home or office this Halloween. It’s sure to be a stylish and chic one this year!
