Halloween Decorations!!

Halloween is right around the corner and some things around town are starting to get spooky. Haunted hayrides, tombstones and skeletons in front yards, black birds larking in the neighborhood, and carved pumpkins lit up on front steps!!!! The question is are the interiors of your home decorated and in the Halloween spirit? If not, here are some decorating ideas for the holiday!

You don’t have to just dress up, you can also “dress up” your mantle!

The black crow has a distinct call that is a bit terrifying as well as theirĀ  highly intelligent social behavior. So, using a black crow to decorate for Halloween is perfect! It can also be a more sophisticated look!

Bats, spiders, potions, and older things have a haunted vibe. This decor is no different.

Indoor Seasonal Changes!

The air is cooling, the leaves are changing, and the smells around us are shifting from summer to fall. There are changes we can make indoors to reflect the turning of the seasons outdoors. One design item that helps us to shift into the cooler weather mindset is texture. Throw pillows are an easy swap out item. I absolutely love these wool pillows!

Throw blankets for chairs, sofas, and benches are the perfect accessory to snuggle up with while adding a little more texture. A faux fur throw calls to me to touch it and wrap up in it. The cable knit wool throws are super cozy as well.

These super soft cashmere blankets add a great pop of color to brighten a cold and dreary day!

Candles suggest warmth. Their soft glow warms up a space visually.

I love these candles that are made to look like your favorite wool sweater!

Picture6These decorative lanterns are festive for the holiday season.

Along with candles you can change up the scents in you home with diffusers, incense, sprays, or whatever your preferred method is. Fall calls for scents such as pumpkin pie…

apple cinnamon…

salted caramel and vanilla chai!

Another fun and easy change is hand towels. Options for these are unlimited! You can pick from simple fall colors to decorated holiday themed towels.

If you have the space, there is one additional furniture item I would suggest adding by your main entrance….a coat rack! This can be sculptural, almost like a piece of art.

If you're lacking floor space, hang several hooks on a wall. These come in such a variety shapes and colors there are surely some to fit your style.
