Corny home decorations? Quoth the interior designer, nevermore! Too often, we are stuck thinking that Halloween parties imply a sacrifice of style in the spirit of plastic skeletons and pumpkin everything.
Just like any other holiday, there are plenty of ways to put a refined twist on traditional decor. Moody hues are an exquisite colour scheme to adopt, don’t go overboard with the all-black look, but you also don't be afraid to bring out your dark side either.
Dark-coloured blooms and subtle spooky accents like these mad scientist vials and skeleton trinkets create the perfect vignette for the Halloween season.

It’s the one feature we all have, whether your house is big or small. First impressions are massive; outfitting your front facade is a pretty big style bang for your buck.
If you want to add some holiday spirit to your entryway, keep your porch classy with a simple bat-laden branch wreath and a few artfully placed pumpkins and sticks. It sets a spooky tone without being over the top, and sparks interest and conversation amongst all your spooky guests.

An ode to the overgrown mansion of Miss Havisham in the classic Great Expectations - we can’t get enough of these fanciful autumn table arrangements. The proliferation of candlesticks and a vintage cloche gives the scene a mysterious Victorian mansion vibe without veering into granny territory.
Moody hues like black, pink, purple, and gold feel entirely appropriate for the spookiest of holidays. They also have more than enough style to stand on their own all year long.
