This year skip on the “cheesy” plastic pumpkins, and sticky candy and go for a more elegant touch that still feels eerie. Adding a touch of trendy and glamour is an excellent form of bringing Halloween to your home in a more modern way. From glass pumpkins to simple touches of black these bits, you need for Fall and might even want to keep all-year-round. Here are some trendy Halloween decorations for witchy, Spooktacular style.
Pumpkins are a signature staple of Halloween, so much so that they come in multiple different sizes, colors, textures and even aesthetic. However, for a more upgraded appeal add an array of linen pumpkins to bring a chic elegance that makes a beautiful display in your home. Group together pumpkins that come in multiple different sizes for a broad variety that bring a chic feel to your table.
Another excellent option for those that want a more rustic feel to their Halloween décor. Add in wooden pumpkins instead of any other ones. Having handcrafted wood pumpkins is perfect for an additional touch of rustic without compromising your décor. You might even want to display outdoors as well if you do remember they will never go out of style or grow mold- a win-win for all.
Bring on the Glitz
For a stylish touch that does not take away from your current décor, purchase traditional Halloween decorative bits in a glittery or silver finish. Having a contrast between the two is perfect for those times you want traditional festive décor that will not have to be changed once the holiday is over. Keep it simple, by having glittery pumpkins as they main highlight of your home.
Do not underestimate how beautiful witchy wreaths can be. Welcome your witchy friends with an edgy yet spooky wreath hanging from your door. Having this touch sets the feel of your home in a seamless manner. You will want to choose a few wreaths throughout your home to have that well-rounded appeal. You might even want to have your wreaths displayed in other areas of your home that is not your door. Areas such as your staircase and/or both.
Keep it Simple
While most of us love to go the extra mile for the holidays, one of the best ways to ensure you have that trendy, spooky feel is by keeping it simple. Decorate with a monochromatic palette for a beautiful pairing that expands on the space without using the traditional colors. Furthermore, doing so allows you to decide if you want to keep your décor up for a bit longer then when the holiday is over.
Don’t Forget your Backyard
Whereas most décor tends to happen on the inside of your home, take your spooky bits outside. Hang cool Halloween lights or add fun pumpkins in multiple colors, textures, and sizes for a more upscale feel. Additionally, incorporate your fall colors for a more well-rounded feel that don’t necessarily scream Halloween instead it screams “holiday season” with a spooky twist.
Skulls are quite the Halloween staple; however, it is quite easy to take decorating with them a bit too far and making the space feel cheesy. A simple way to avoid this is by bringing glamor to your décor with gem-encrusted skulls. Place them around your home for that touch of spooky that is quite chic and beautiful. Use skulls in different sizes for a daring pairing that has a classic touch to it.
As much as lace can be feminine and appealing it can also be edgy and enchanting. Add hints of black lace as much as possible to bring out that spooky aesthetics that can also feel feminine in a unique type of way. Consider having black lace as part of your table décor or as an additional touch to your mantel.
Mercury glass has become a top favorite for most seasons, not only is it beautiful to look at but it has that authentic spooky element to it. The key is having mercury glass worked into a display that mainly features other decorative elements with the same aesthetics. Doing so will bring a freshness to the area that seems cohesive and put together. For a more festive appeal add hints of orange and/or black for that classic Halloween touch.
Dark and Edgy
Crows are one of those animals that are symbolic of death, Halloween, darkness, and even mysterious moments. Therefore, having them as part of your décor is not only dark and edgy but its fun and contemporary. Whether you have them on the inside of your home for a spooky bit or you have them on the outside, crows take your décor to the next level with little to no hesitation.
