Decorating for Halloween


Halloween is not just a celebration for the little ones… For the design lovers amongst us, it is the perfect opportunity to get creative and overhaul our homes without the long term commitment. From selectively placed skulls to carefully curated cobwebs, it is all a chance to hone your styling skills and master the art of composition. We have rounded up some of our favourite Halloween interiors concept imagery to spark those ideas ready for the end of the month…

Table settings

Decking the dinner table is an art form. Leading up to Christmas, all interiors magazines have pieces on festive place setting styles, and Pinterest is full of wintery centrepieces, and Halloween need be no different. It is a great chance to have fun with colourful linens, stacking different tableware collections together to create a unique scheme, and getting hands on with homemade centrepieces!


If you are looking for Halloween decor with a delicate touch – why not consider a flurry of bats (or black butterflies), tacked elegantly on the wall, to create a three dimensional mural. The graphic look of this approach works great in homes which are sleek and modern! 

Do not forget to play with the lighting in the space to create interesting shadows and manipulate the ambience.

Monochrome decor

Halloween styling can be more than the classic orange and black duo. Making things monochrome is a great way to keep the decorations looking sophisticated and at one with the rest of the home. This neutrals palette is a great example of how layer whites, ecrus and creams allows for a spooky look whilst not compromising the existing character of the interior.

Flower arrangements

Flowers light up any indoor space so whenever there is an excuse for a new bouquet, we will take it! Using rustic looking flowers with a moodier colour scheme is the perfect way to bring Halloween to the interior without the risk of being gimmicky – purples, sage greens and deep reds are a great starting point.

Style alongside candles and vases with reactive glaze, or patinated props (we are thinking watering cans, goblets, carafes etcetera).
