Chic Halloween Ideas!

Tis the season to be creepy! With Halloween around the corner many of us are thinking about entertaining guests with parties and functions.  The question becomes, “How do I decorate my home so that it looks both chic and creepy at the same time?”  There are many different looks that you can create without spending  a lot of money…Check out some of the looks below.

Black and White Halloween

Black and White Halloween Dining Room

Whether your home is contemporary or transitional, decorating in black and white is trendy these days.  Adding a few accessories around a neutral interior will enhance the ambiance of the themed room and allow you to focus on the novelty items selected.   Some items  suggested to add to your room are pumpkins, wreaths made out of twigs, spiderwebs, black tablecloth, and candles.  To create this look you will want to keep the color simplistic by only using black, white, and punches of orange.

Lace Pumpkin Look
To create this look all you need is a decorative sock or stocking with has a lace pattern, stretch it over the pumpkin, glue and paint the stem black. White pumpkins make this look chic and modern!

Painted White Pumpkins: Create Black and White Illustrations on pumpkins using stencils downloaded from the internet.

Black Frames with punch of fall branches are a great way to recycle your old looking frames. To make this look appear “halloween-ish”, place this set-up on a buffet or cabinet with a sprinkle of synethic spider webs, small pumpkins and a faux lit candle to create a more dramatic feel with the branches.

Black Halloween Twig Wreath: This look can be created by making a wreath out of twigs from the yard, or spray painting one of your old fall wreaths with black spray paint.  Just make sure to remove anything that is not a twig.  Bead wreaths will create this look as well!

Orange Halloween Room

Orange Theme Halloween Room

In 2012, tango tangerine was selected as the color of the year!   If you were a person who was truly inspired by this color and indulged yourself by using it for the main color in your room, this Halloween is the perfect holiday for you to showcase the color!  Like the picture above, there is not much you have to do to make this color appear festive.  By adding simple accessories of black and purple you can turn this room into a fun Halloween inspired room whether you want to keep it chic and simple or creepy and ghostly.

Decorating Black Pillows for Halloween

A creative way to make a pillow appear to have a Halloween theme is to add a a decorative sash to it! Choosing sashes which have orange, purple, or even a Halloween pattern will give this styled pillow a bit of flare.

By adding buttons or dots of paint to a black pillow you can create this “black cat” pillow look!

Getting creative with items in the home during holidays can be a great way to join together with friends and save a little money!  Your home can come to life with creativity and keep you feeling good about staying environmentally friendly by using something old to create something new!

If your taste is towards the more creepy and exotic you can find lots of ghosts and goblins in the stores and online to help you create a really over the top Halloween experience for your guests. You can also create your own with materials around the house like sheets and old clothing. This is the time of the year to celebrate the spooky, creepy side of you and share it with your friends and family. Here are a couple of great Halloween rooms for you to enjoy and get ideas from!
