Halloween Un-decorating: Candles, Orange and Ghostly White

Halloween kicks off the holiday season, which means amassing decorating ideas for each person is in full effect. For a holiday such as Halloween, the entry is arguably the most crucial place to decorate. Spooky jack-o-lanterns, ghosts or spider webs on exterior doors encourage trick-or-treaters, while interior entries continue the subject and make everyone smile upon walking into a house. One of the challenges, for me, is finding amazing, bold announcement pieces for holiday vignettes without losing sight of the interesting aspect.

Would you love this? I love this. So many layers to this lovely vignette! The curtains are phenomenal, and the little shots of turquoise, white, yellow and green create the designs presentable whatever the season, however that lamp base makes for an upscale, contemporary Halloween layout scheme.

This gorgeous Victorian house already screams Halloween, what with all the turrets, wrap-around architectural and porch details, but the orange globes create a simple yet powerful festive announcement. I’d definitely want to get a close look.


Le Versha Chair, Orange – $248

Drop some of these in your own porch and call it a Halloween day (or night?)

Inside Avenue

White and orange Ceramic Garden Stool – $290

Put this garden stool alongside those seats (previously ) and sit outside waiting for trick-or-treaters, perhaps with an adult”treat” your own in hand!

Decorating for Halloween can be subtle: orange accents frequently do just fine. And you’ll be able to have a seasonal approach. Maybe this zebra-patterned rug, tray and twigs (from the background) are brought out each autumn. Winter, summer and spring may yield very different runners/rugs, console accessories and florals — and none of it needs to be exhorbitantly expensive!

West Elm

Papier-Mâché Animal Sculptures – $29

If you are not sold on completely submitting your house to Halloween decor, try out a papier-mache sculpture, such as these from West Elm. There is something ghostly about these, however they’ll work with decor well outside of the Halloween season.

This entry is complicated and beautiful when remaining inherently Halloween-ready annually.

This is not an entry, per se, but the concept of bringing in orange accessories and accents readily translates; include a Halloween flavor to any room — entrances included.

Be still, my heart. This entry and dining area might not have intended to seem Halloween-ready, however the candelabras and chandeliers give the room a subtle, grownup Halloween feel.

The French state vibe of this entry is enhanced by this well-chosen article of gourds and greenery. A vignette such as this will easily take you away from Halloween through Thanksgiving, as it is time trade autumn décor for wintry whites and lighting.
