Quick! What do you think of when you hear Halloween? Most people would answer “ghastly costumes” or “creepy stories,” but there is much more to this holiday than meets the eye.
Some home designers have taken Halloween home decor trends to a whole new level by reimagining the same fall holiday concepts with a more luxurious touch. From colors to textures, it’s easy to implement the look and feel of All Hallow’s Eve with just an extra dash of sophistication.

Here are four examples for your Halloween decor –
Day of the Dead – Inspired by the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos for celebrating the deceased, décor based on traditional Day of the Dead items are becoming something of a hit in upscale décor. Beautiful, intricately designed masks, brightly colored flowers and elegant costumes have inspired everything from drapery and linens to ornaments and keepsakes.
Embellished Linens and Accessories – From throw pillows to tablecloths, some Halloween-inspired pieces are nothing like the cheap and cheesy last minute décor picked up from discount party stores. These high quality items may be pricier, but the will continue to last year after year. Consider tablecloths embroidered with tiny skulls or Jack-o-Lanterns and linen napkins embellished with a witch’s broom.
