4 Stylish & Creative Halloween Decor Trends

Halloween is one of the most fun holidays to decorate for! There are all sorts of spooky (and not-so-spooky) ideas to turn your home into a black and orange wonderland, at least for the month of October. Every year, brands come-up with new and exciting decor items to take your Halloween interior design to the next level. This guide details some of 2018’s creative Halloween trends.

  1. Pumpkins – Although pumpkins are a tried and true autumn staple, today’s design aficionados are making their pumpkins truly unique. Spray painting orange pumpkins to match your interior design scheme is a major trend this year. Whether you love neutrals or rainbow hues, matching your pumpkins to your overall decorating style is a fun twist on classic fall decor. Gold painted pumpkins are another fun option. These add the perfect amount of glam to Halloween vignettes throughout your home.
  2. Faux greenery –  Greenery isn’t necessarily the first thing that comes to mind when you think, “Halloween,” but it can actually be the ideal accent to a spooky tablescape. Weaving dark green ivy across your table can have a creepy look, especially if you add spider plants or even a Venus flytrap as a centerpiece. The best part is that you can leave faux greenery out all the way through the holiday season, making things less stressful for you.
  3. Goth accents – Don’t be scared to go to the dark side this Halloween! Gothic accent pieces were made for this time of year and you can’t go wrong with a few of them placed strategically around your house. One great option is to buy stick-on wallpaper with a Gothic pattern; this can be taken down after the Halloween holiday, but will totally change the look of a space during October. Inexpensive plastic skulls painted with black matte paint are another great way to add Gothic appeal this season.
  4. Synthetic spider webs – Decorating with real spider webs is obviously out of the question, but synthetic styles are a great addition to your Halloween decor. There are all sorts of fun things that can be inspired with webs, including attaching them to your window treatments or hanging them from ceiling fans. You can even buy some fake spiders to up the scare factor!

Hopefully, these ideas have gotten your creative juices flowing and you are well on your way to creating a spookily decorated home that will be the talk of the town! Contact us today for some guidance to make your spooky vision a reality!
