Unless you’re completely obsessed, you probably won’t go out and buy a whole design and interiors scheme specifically for one night of the year! However, there are lots of great Halloween-inspired accessories that you can spook up your home with – this year and for many years to come! Here are our top picks for Halloween decoration.
Skulls are brilliantly evocative of spookiness. Celebrate Halloween with this fabulously colourful Fiesta Skull cushion by Jan Constantine for Amara, inspired by Mexico’s Day of the Dead celebrations. The kids will also love this in their den or playroom all year round.
Want to lord it over your guests in your own velvet throne? This is a bit of an investment, but so worth it! The amazing Duresta Carnaby Chair, Ebony and Gold Tipped Leg chair in Harrow Velvet Navy at John Lewis is dark and luxurious and would be right at home in Drakula’s castle! It will also look stunning in your living room, hallway, reading space or bedroom (at any time of year).
This striking Black Petals Fruit bowl is intricate and lovely, but has a dark side! Designed by Janne Uusi Autti at Cloudberry Living, it’s a great design piece for a kitchen worktop, sideboard or table and is perfect for fruit most of the year. We think it would be perfect for Halloween Treats or mini pumpkins (aka satsumas or Terry’s Chocolate Orange!).
Why not treat Halloween as you do Christmas and invest in your own box of Halloween decorations? If you want to let the trick or treaters know you’re a Halloween-friendly house, then this gorgeous Halloween Wreath from John Lewis is perfect and can be used year in, year out. This stylish yet spooky wreath features shiny baubles and gruesome spiders, to create that sophisticated, yet spooky ambience.
Revel in it
Great for any teenager’s bedroom, The Revelers Tapestry from Urban Outfitters is a great way to add a (temporary) Halloween feature wall! This exclusive cotton tapestry has a quirky folk-inspired metallic skeleton print and adds a fun and spooky vibe to any bedroom, tent or den!
