With October just around the corner, I thought today would be a great time to share a tour of my home decorated for Halloween. In this post, I am going to share simple and chic ways to incorporate festive touches of fright throughout your modern abode.
With the world feeling so heavy and uncertain right now, I needed some relief.
Surprisingly enough, I was actually able to find that relief by adding a few simple touches of Halloween kitsch into my otherwise neutral decor scheme.
Sometimes you’ve just got to take a step back and remember not to take decorating (or life for that matter) so freaking seriously.
In fact, it’s quite impressive what a few skeletons, bats, and spiders can do for one’s spirits…
Amping up the warmth factor, these velvet rust-colored pillows were the perfect pop of color in an otherwise muted space.

In terms of fall florals, you can never go wrong with dried eucalyptus or pampas stems. Not only do they add texture and interest to a space, they also exude major boho vibes. (For more details on my newly transformed living room, click here).
And with neutral fall decorating, you can never have enough white pumpkins. Adding a bit of autumnal color to the mix, I love how my little Argonite crystal provides the perfect pop of rust against the white and black theme on my coffee table.
Of course, I had to incorporate the “basic” copper mug into my tour somehow (brimming with vodka, no doubt). Conveniently enough, my rust colored MuuMuu dress not only worked well with the color scheme, but also did a decent job concealing my newly acquired gut. Thanks a lot, 2020.
In my dining room, I traded out my tan velvet pillows for a copper-hued variety. Then, I simply added a few bats on the wall and some dried pampass stems and, voila….festive Halloween fun.
I was actually pretty excited when I received my package of decorative bats, because the kit actually came with spiders as well (as photographed in my living room).
My tip when hanging these spooky delights: find a discreet area to test the adhesive- making sure it will not ruin the finish on your walls. Erring on the side of caution, I went with scotch tape and everything has seemed to hold up fine so far.
If you have been on the fence about decorating for Halloween, I highly recommend trying it.
Letting my inner child out to play for a while was just what I needed during such crazy times.
