Top Tips for Eerie Interiors this Halloween

Top Tips for Eerie Interiors this Halloween Planning a spooky Halloween party or just decorating for trick-or-treaters, chances are you are currently searching for spooktacular ways to decorate your home.

Take some inspiration from Simpson Park, one of our South Yorkshire developments, where we have recently introduced some eerie interiors to help welcome those visiting our show home…

Carving a creative colour scheme - Most people associate this time of year with black and orange, however there’s a much wider colour palette that you could consider this season. Think cloudy night skies and haunted hues that include dark blues and witchy purples to evoke a sinister tone within your home.

First impressions - Your front doorstep creates that initial impact for guests and trick-or-treaters, so adding some Halloween spirit here is absolutely vital. Hang creepy cobwebs from the front door, giving the illusion of a haunted house and try a tinted light bulb if you have a porch light. Hanging seasonal wreaths are always affective and very much in vogue. You could try making your own wreath or, for ease, simply purchase one. Sticking to the traditional Halloween colour scheme of oranges, yellows and browns will give your wreath longevity for the autumn period.

A living room for the undead - The living room is a space where party guests are likely to be spending much of their time. A quick and easy way to re-style this space is to change your soft furnishings just for the Halloween weekend. Use themed cushion covers, rugs or throws which can be used year after year – or for that added dramatic effect, drape the furniture in white bedsheets to make the room look abandoned. If you’re throwing a children’s Halloween party, the bedsheets will help protect your furniture from any mess too!

Spine-tingling tablescaping – Use prominent focal points such as your breakfast bar or hallway console table to create an ultimate centrepiece to impress your guests on All Hallows’ Eve. Ghosts, ghouls, skeletons, pumpkins and spiders are all associated with Halloween and will never go out of fashion. Style creepy figurines and ornaments around a central candelabra and interweave with foraged autumnal items such as fallen leaves, baby pumpkins and gourds.
