Around this time of year change is definitely in the air. The temperature is cooler, the evenings are getting darker and the transition from Summer to Autumn is in full swing. The leaves on the trees are changing colour from greens to a mixture of beautiful browns, rustic reds and opulent orange. It’s time to prepare the home for my favourite annual celebration. No, not Christmas. It’s Halloween! The colours of halloween are reflected in the bright orange of the foliage. It’s pumpkins on doorsteps, warm glows from windows and crisp leaves underfoot. So let’s look at some ideas to get your home ready for a happy Halloween.
In complete contrast to the previous tip, instead of a black sheet, spread a white sheet across your couches and sofas, chairs and other living room furniture. Add to the effect by cutting holes and giving the sheet a tattered and worn look.
For the authentic Halloween look, you can’t beat spiderwebs. If you’re like me, and faint at the sight of a daddy-long-legs, you can use fake spiderwebs from a spray-can. Cover your shelves and cabinets with the fake spiderwebs.
Candles are great for giving an extra spooky feeling. Place lots of them around the house. They especially look great in front of mirrors. But be sure to keep them away from flammable surfaces. Exercise caution at all times.
Pumpkins add a little bit of fun and fear to the mix. Decorate them with some ghostly designs or your favourite cartoon character. There is no limit to what you can do with a pumpkin. Your kids will have lots of fun. And you can make some delicious pumpkin soup to keep you warm.
Traditionally black and orange is the colour of Halloween. Orange tones are everywhere. The leaves, the landscape, and of course pumpkins.
Black is synonymous with witches hats and black cats, the feast of Halloween and the darkness of the nights.
When it comes to home decor, black and orange are a strong colour combination. Get it wrong and they can easily overpower a room. Get it right and you can bring a space to life.
