Bring Halloween to Every Room

Each holiday season we love the idea of bringing the festive charm to every room of the house and this adds to the celebratory mood in the air. Halloween is no different and you should try and add lovely, appropriate Halloween decorations to rooms beyond just the living area and the dining room this fall. Bring a bit of Halloween inspiration to the bedroom with ceiling decorations, cutout next to the windows and usher spookiness into the kitchen with Halloween-themed garlands, decorations and maybe even kitchenware.

Old School with Halloween Decorations

With everyone taking a more modern approach to Halloween in the last few years, it is easy to understand why people want to bring back a bit of old school charm to the displays this year. A lot of orange and black, the timeless Halloween elements like hanging bat motifs, witch-cutouts in the windows and cobwebs all around are a great way to embrace this look. Lighting this setting right makes an even bigger visual impact.

Embrace a Hint of Dark Minimalism

Not a big fan of more ghastly Halloween decorations? Maybe you are not someone who loves the look of zombies, bats, cobwebs and witches all around. Not to worry as there is a more minimal and contemporary way to decorate for the day and one that is equally trendy this season. Simple, framed Halloween-themed posters and wall art, elegant cutouts that fit in with the modern look and Halloween-themed accent pillows should do the trick in here.
