Halloween Chic: dark decor you’ll want to keep all year
Halloween Chic without a pumpkin or skull in site
Every year, towards the end of October we vigorously shuffle through our storage bins in our attics or eaves just to use the same spooky decor for a couple of weeks, until they go back to building up dust. Wouldn’t it be so much easier to incorporate spooky and dark decor into your everyday design? We’re bringing you 10 of the funkiest decor goods that can be used exclusively for Halloween, or better yet, all year round!
From tattoos to framed art, line drawings have made their way into the top design trends. The Modern Femme wallpaper by Drop it MODERN fills an empty wall perfectly! Use the wallpaper to create a funky feature wall in your home that will appeal to everyone. And we won’t even talk about the photo ops this wall creates 😉 Even if you end up getting sick of the wallpaper (we can’t imagine who would) it is easily removable!
It was so hard to choose just one item from Fornasetti! The company specializes in graphic illustrations that are translated onto common decor items to create quirky pieces like the one above. Faces are often the inspiration behind the designs making it as creepy as Halloween itself. The candle above features the enigmatic face of Lina Cavalieri.
What would you use these trays for? Trinkets or candy? We hope you don’t ash your cigarettes on these beauties! We know Halloween is meant to be dark and mysterious, but it can also be colourful and fun, that’s why these trays are such cool contrasting pieces.
This is the wild side of Halloween. These bird claw candle holders are creepy yet interesting, to say the least. The brass make of the sculpted piece makes it pleasant to look at. Definitely an awesome piece to have in your home all year round!
This piece screamed Halloween to us, we don’t know why. Is it because it reminds us of Beetlejuice or a prisoner costume, or maybe a referee? Regardless, this striped mixed marble table by Kelly Wearstler is so trendy and distinct…we want one in our homes too!!
This collection is such a treat to the eye. These vases are unconventional yet charming. Wrapped in faces and gilded details, these vases were inspired by Gala, Salvador Dali’s wife and muse. These vases were inspired to ‘dress up’ as muses…maybe that’ll be a costume idea for you guys this year!
Hide the candy from your sneaky kids in these jolly little boxes. Their glowy glamour nature gives off the appearance of a crystal ball. We can’t speak for the future, but maybe the globo box can!
This little bar has a lot going on; hypnotic and vintage, creative and contemporary, we love all the different aspects of this piece!! The layered black and white graphic stripes influenced by pop culture with the polished brass inspired by art deco designs makes this piece diverse enough to stay in your home even after Halloween!
Your secrets are safe with us! But if you feel you can’t trust us, you can trust the canisters! These bold black and white striped canisters will hold your ‘vices’….or kitchen essentials, but that’s no fun. Choose from Jonathan Adler’s vice canister selection if you want to stash glitter, puppy uppers, or ganja, or all of them, we don’t judge!
We had to save the best for last, how cliche of us! This Mohawk Sculpture is so wicked especially with the quartz embellished mohawk. We’re definitely noting this down for future hairstyles ideas!
