Whether you are hosting a Halloween party or simply getting into the spirit of the scariest time of year, the fancy dress is just half the fun. Dressing up your home in preparation for the festivities can create a delightful and spooky look to greet guests and get them in the mood for a ghoulish gathering!
Of course, you can fill your home with cheap n’ cheerful bits from your local supermarket but if you want to give your home a more sophisticated or elegant look this scary season, then leave those aside and have a look at our favourite ways to dress your home for Halloween.

Consider your home’s natural style first and purchase items that can be used throughout the year instead of items that need to be packed away once the last of the sweeties have been given out at the door. From lighting to candles and cushions, your home can amp up the stylish spook factor with our favourite accessories.

If you love a little sparkle and glam in your home décor, then you’ll love our picks. Consider gold skulls and candelabras alongside black feathers (reminiscent of crows!) and deep berry colours. Our favourite pick? The Insect Mandala dinner service from The Curious Department which uses all manner of creepy crawlies to create beautiful patterns with gold accents.

If you have a more traditional style home, then take cues from the Victorian Gothic era with black chandeliers, luxe ruby-red velvet and ornate gold mirrors. Our favourite pick? The Bird Feet Candlesticks from Audenza, which are sure to be a talking point at your party (considering using black dinner candles with it!) but can be used year-round as an eclectic touch in your home.
