Whether you're a simple
pumpkin soul or an all-out freaky fanatic, take a look at our
ultimate guide to a spooky haunted house!
knows that a Halloween colour scheme is orange and black, but how can
you make your home stylish yet spooky at the same time?
For an all out spooky yet stylish Halloween party, stick to these top tips. Our advice to you is, stick to white, black, orange and brown. The leaves are changing and the nights are getting darker, so choosing black as your exterior colour scheme is a no-go. Alternatively choose white, white will stand out in the dark and ensure your house stands out from the rest. Orange is also a great colour for the outside, not to dark yet not bright enough to diminish the white accessories. For the interior colour scheme, a range of colours are perfect as long as you decorate them properly. Introduce brown furniture, with black, white and orange accessories.
Be creative when it comes to your indoor lighting, the right lighting will allow you to create an alluring ambience, this will work wonders for your Halloween party. Although lighting is absolutely necessary during these particularly dark nights, try to dim as much as possible, perhaps introduce more lights but keeping them soft. Additionally, to create a spectacular spooky vibe you can introduce the likes of lanterns rather than having a ceiling light on. Experimenting with lighting is a very important aspect when it comes to a perfect Halloween home décor, you can also introduce tall candles throughout the house just to add to that spooky atmosphere. However, be aware and keep them high and out of the way from the inevitable dancing zombies.
Dressing The Furniture
The furniture in your home is also a very important aspect to consider, plank furniture looks spectacular throughout each and every season but more so incredibly unique at Halloween. It is extremely important that you decorate your dining room furniture in good order rather than draping anything and everything over them. This season, a rustic
dining table is an absolute must. Not only do they fit the part for Halloween but they also suit each and every season. Alternatively, when it comes to living room furniture, vintage
sofas are great for giving off that “old, rustic and haunted” feeling. However, these aren't the type of sofas you only want to implement for the Halloween period, these are all-year round specials. Vintage sofas can really add a spark of character into your home, so invest!
One of the most crucial accessories this Halloween is a “Haunted Mirror”. Introducing home
and furniture accessories can be what makes or breaks your stylishly spooky house and any time of the year at that matter. Mirrors, lamps, clocks and an increasing trend this season, chalk paint can really add a personal touch and a sense of character into your home. Any of these accessories can be dressed up – or down in typical Halloween colours, mirrors can be sprayed to give off that antique look or you can introduce a new antique lamp.
