HALLOWEEN HOME TOUR


3 weeks until Halloween, which means it's time to start thinking about Halloween decorations and I'm not talking about plastic spiders and cobwebs (unless you're planning a kids party of course which in my book is the only exception!) Halloween is the perfect time to introduce some beautiful rustic autumn colours to your home.  This year I've decided to keep our Halloween decorations quite minimal. You won't find any spider webs or skeletons anywhere, although few glamorous skulls will be floating around the house. If you don't want to go OTT this Halloween, you'll be pleased to hear it actually takes very little effort to switch to Halloween mode. All you really need is fresh flowers, few pumpkins on the shelves and a gorgeous smelling pumpkin candle or two.

I'm a big fan of wreaths. I use them both indoors and outdoors, although you still won't find that many Halloween wreaths in the shops in the UK. My autumnal pumpkin wreath is from last year (discontinued) but this one is quite similar. The Big Door Wreath Company also stock some stunning wreaths but I believe they only have one or two left. The best thing is that all the wreaths are faux so you can use them year after year. 





I found the prettiest bouquet from our local M&S to match my faux wreath. The arrangement is not faux though, so you can't expect it to last for weeks. I love this faux flower arrangement from Laura Ashley too (plus it's more than 50% off at the moment). You could easily create your own DIY Halloween arrangement. All you need is some winter berries, leaves and flower dye. If you can't find the time to do it yourself, why not ask your local florist if they could do a custom Halloween bouquet for you?



Glamorous skulls are the way to go if you want to celebrate Halloween in style. I still think TK Maxx have the best selection of Halloween decorations in the UK. My gold skull is few years old now but I still love it. Plus, the gold detailing makes it look a lot more expensive than it was. 



Our giant monochrome pumpkin is also few years old now. It's made of wood and is definitely a statement piece. 


Our dining room Halloween decor looks quite minimal as well. I placed an old diamond skull and a magpie ornament on top of our wine glass cabinet to give the room that subtle Halloween feel. Halloween is also the perfect time to start decorating with vegetables (yes, that's right!) which is why I've placed some pumpkins on the shelves. Mini pumpkins actually last ages in room temperature, but I would hold off buying larger ones until closer to Halloween (or you'll have to store them outside).




The best way to add interest to an all white room is by adding a splash of colour. Orange is the ultimately Halloween colour for me which makes the whole process so much easier. Orange roses are always an elegant choice and last ages. I also like to get creative with my pumpkin arrangements and come up with new ideas every year. Check out Pinterest for some serious decorative inspiration!





I randomly found my Pumpkin Harvest candle in TK Maxx few weeks ago. I had never heard of Californian brand Sand + Fog before, but I'm hooked now. It's such a gorgeous scent and a really generous size. The packaging looks divine and it was such a bargain for £8. In fact, I was so impressed I went back to TK Maxx and bought their White Pine candle few days ago. Believe it or not, now is the perfect time to start stocking up on Christmas candles!
