Did you know that the celebration of Halloween originates from an ancient Celtic festival when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts?
Over time, Halloween evolved into a day of activities like trick-or-treating, carving pumpkins, festive gatherings, dressing up, and eating treats.
BRING HALLOWEEN IN YOUR INTERIOR DESIGN
For interior design enthusiasts, there´s more to Halloween than sweet treats and dressing up. From strategically placed pumpkins to carefully chosen light sources and cobwebs, the right Halloween decorations can show off your personal style.
Check out our proposal and tips for adding festive flair to a space without going overboard.
Less is more
When it comes to seasonal decoration, there is a fine line between chic and kitschy. Pumpkins and a black-orange color palette work well in small doses. In this example, we chose to place decorations on a vignette - it is an easy way to add a festive touch without doing too much. A dry flower arrangement, few small pumpkins in warm colors, and candles to get the right type of lighting.
2. Experiment with textures
Try to experiment with textures – blankets, rugs, and other plush textures, they can be a great way to quickly change the character of a room. Don’t forget about the style and color scheme of your room. Note the lighting in a room and how that light will change when choosing the right textures for your interior design. As you can see in this example, the purple light of the sunset combined with the warm spotlight and candlelight intensify the orange and the textures, creating an arrangement that will appeal to all senses.
3. The Hygge balcony
Your terrace or balcony are good opportunities to bring in the cozy Halloween spirit. In this example, we chose to place 2 chairs to create the perfect spot for that evening glass of wine.
Furniture makes the space inviting and creates a focal point that everyone will want to hang around in. Don´t forget about plants – they soften the space, and make it come alive.
The lighting sets again the tone – for outdoor spaces, the warmer the light, the better.
