Grab your coffee, pumpkin spice whatever, snuggle up with a throw, and prepare for some seriously fun seasonal inspiration! The last post I shared on halloween decor in our home was a couple years ago- check it out here. We were about to move and I styled the built-ins in our previous home one last time. This year, I’ve been far too busy to bust out all of my Halloween decor, so I kept it simple with pumpkins and a festive fall porch. Instead, I’m finding joy in the festive decor that has been popping up in my feed lately! Whether you’re decorating (and celebrating) this season or not, I thought it would be fun to share beautiful vignettes from 12 fellow designers and bloggers. Who knows- maybe in addition to Halloween decorating inspiration, you’ll also find some new favorites to follow! Click through…
#1 // Spooky Exterior
You can catch Jenna’s full Halloween front yard tour in this post… it’s a classic way to decorate the exterior without being too creepy! I’m digging the bats, her cheesecloth ghosts, the solar lighting, and the overall scene of her home lit up at night for October.
#2 // Timeless Halloween Decor
Gwen always goes all out for Halloween, and each year I’m more impressed with her decor and overall theme! She has yet to reveal her BIG halloween scheme this year, but I’m already loving the little (creepy) details she has been sprinkling throughout for fall.
#3 // Bats in The Stairwell
Cass installed minimal bats in her neutral stairwell for a high-contrast look, and I really enjoy the simplicity of the vignette! It’s fun, it’s festive, and it’s fast… that’s the best kind of holiday decor- especially for Halloween! I also really enjoy her composition of the bats flying upward, taking you around the corner. They make you want to walk upstairs.
#4 // Classic Fall Stoop
Josh can do no wrong when it comes to decorating the interior of his home- or the exterior. He recently moved into this charming place in DC, and he’s already winning the hearts of his neighbors. Talk about a gorgeous fall photo op! This entire situation is timeless and traditional, in the best possible way.
#5 // Layered Fall Vignette
Just because you want to celebrate Halloween and make your home feel festive this fall, doesn’t mean you have to incorporate pumpkins, ghosts, and mums. This stunning vignette Heather pulled together is a great example of how to use regular objects to create that coveted fall feeling. From the foraged branches to the melted wax candles, this image is all about BALANCE. Masculine and feminine elements, geometric and organic, hard edges and soft wispy florals… are you noticing how it all works together and still feels seasonally appropriate? Very well done!
#6 // Seasonal Shelving
Next up, this bright and cheerful kitchen moment styled by Michael stopped me mid scroll. This is another perfect example of how that coveted fall feeling is translated in an interior space, without feeling overly decked out for Halloween. It’s warm, inviting, eclectic, and works well for October AND November… kudos for styling seasonal decor that has staying power or longevity. That makes the holiday season so much easier!
Sara’s spooky built-in showed up on Emily Henderson’s feed this week, and of course I love the color and the dramatic spiderweb that boldly intersects this vignette! It feels dark, moody, interesting, and perfect for Halloween. It’s one of those that make you want to get closer and peruse the contents of the shelves.
#8 // Seasonal Details
There is a lot to admire in this simple, seasonal photo- it’s traditional, but it also feels designerly and fresh. Mandy snapped a close up of her mums on a woven tray alongside a skull, pumpkin, and a seasonal candle, but I can’t help but notice the goodness that is happening in the background! Despite the shallow depth of field, I’m taking note of the tortoise shell, the cheesecloth draped over a beautiful painting, the bird, and a stunning dark dining room.
#9 // Warm and Modern Entry
Marie does it again… sometimes modern entry points or exteriors look cold and uninviting, but not this one! I’m digging the warm mixed metals (brass & copper), the textural wreath, and of course all of those plants and pumpkins! This home also has lots of beautiful metal patina moments to admire. This is why aging isn’t a bad thing, my friends! It gets better with time.
#10 // Affordable Halloween Decor
My friend Erin decorated with mostly paper for Halloween, plus some items she already had. Her focus was creating fun, kid-friendly projects that doubled as decor, and I have to say- it turned out super cute. Those 3-D spiders are adorable! You can catch her entire post and decor tutorial here.
#11 // Fall Curiosities
Now this is the kind of stuff I LOVE for Halloween- curiosities, oddities, the weird (cool), collected things. Although, if you’ve been following for awhile, you know those butterflies are giving me the heebie jeebies. Jessica shared this shelf styling image at the beginning of October and it feels so right for the upcoming spooky holiday! It has an apothecary sort of vibe, doesn’t it? I’m liking it a lot.
#12 // Whimsical Front Entry
Here is to hoping Julie invites me over someday-she always creates the most magical seasonal vignettes. The candles, the pumpkins, the soft glow of lights against her shaker siding at sunset, and the wreath on that dutch door… it feels like I could walk inside and smell something pumpkin or cinnamon baking in the oven. It’s picturesque and dreamy! I can only imagine what she has cooking up inside.
There you have it! 12 fun Halloween and fall inspired vignettes from very talented designers and bloggers I enjoy following. Did you like this post? Did you discover anyone new? I hope it was a fun Thursday treat to immerse yourself in the season! This year, I’m all for celebrating everything… each season, each win, and even the little moments in between. PS: I’m working on a Friday post for you tomorrow, so please check back if you’re interested in a bonus post this week!
