SkyHomes knows our customers have a discerning eye for style, and deserve the best of the best. When it comes to holiday home decor, perfecting a sophisticated design requires a few expert tips and tricks. Perhaps the most tricky of all occasions to steer clear of gaudy or heavy-handed decorations is Halloween. Today, a myriad of modern and chic takes on Halloween home decor have turned this spooky fall occasion into an opportunity for elegance. SkyHomes offers you Elegant Halloween Decorating Ideas for Your Luxury Home!
Metallic Pumpkin Tablescape
Metallics are both eternally classic, and very on-trend with 2016’s ‘mixing of metals’ in home decor. Silvers, coppers, and golds also exude luxury. Create a classy Halloween table by filling it with metallic gold pumpkins and nature-inspired accents. This refreshing take on traditional Halloween decor is understated–without a hint of orange or black in sight–yet plays on the Halloween theme. Simply paint several pumpkins and pinecones a glittering gold, and display them overtop a burlap runner on your table. Gold votives provide additional beautiful mood lighting. The organic theme is continued with metallic branches, for an overall shimmering, sophisticated Halloween tablescape.
Wreaths are a popular decor item during holiday seasons. They highlight your home’s beautiful exterior by making your front door pop, and welcome guests with a creative and festive flair. For a chic and trendy Halloween wreath, the “less is more” approach produces an elegant Halloween design. Black and white is the epitome of sophistication in its countless home design applications. Black feathers, faux florals and a black crow with black berry accents create a spooky yet classy wreath. If you prefer a more bold wreath, a skull and black and white stripes adorns your front door with a more trendy style, as a neon chartreuse bow gives it a fresh, contemporary look.
Ornate Halloween Mantel
Channel your inner child, or get the kids to make hand cut bats, and pick up a few black crows from your local craft store. Doily ghosts are a cinch to make, and add a delicate and pretty air to your halloween mantel. To make the ghosts, cover tennis balls with fabric and lace then tie them off underneath the ball. Your local pumpkin patch is a great source for real dried gourds, to add that natural look. Perch your crows on the mirror and string beautiful golden, black or silver beads to complete your sophisticated display.
Mint Green & Glittered is the New Carved Pumpkin
The old time tradition of lining your home’s exterior pathway and doorstep with frightful and meticulously-carved pumpkins has been given a glam redo for 2016. Cover your pumpkins in one of the year’s hottest colours, mint green, for an outdoor Halloween decor update. Take advantage of the diverse array of ‘genus Cucurbita’ (the pumpkin family) available at your local grocery store, and pick up several gourds and squash of various shapes and sizes. Adorn these chic cool green pumpkins and the like with a generous sprinkle of gold sparkles. If you’re feeling creative, try a varying combination of hues! Your luxury home will shimmer through the witching hour with mystical elegance.
Understated Halloween decorations dress up your luxury home with autumn elegance for a festive Hallow’s eve feel. SkyHomes wishes you and your family a tres chic trick or treat!
