How to Style a Halloween Console
For some of us, getting in the mood for Halloween throughout the fall season can be a lot more fun and peaceful than the actual day of activities. Halloween is an opportunity to embrace moody and bold styling, and we’re welcoming it with open arms. This holiday doesn’t need to take over your whole house. In fact, we love keeping it limited to a console or sometimes just a front door. And, most importantly, Halloween decor does not need to clash with your existing aesthetic. It can be subtly playful and timeless yet also very obviously Halloween.
We’re focusing on our best Halloween console styling tips, for now. Here are three ways to bring Halloween into your home’s design.
No. 01 | Create a few bold moments with your seasonal styling
Why do we recommend centering your Halloween styling around a console table? We’ve found that it’s impactful to focus on one or two areas for seasonal decor instead of scattering themed items throughout the home. Focusing on a console table in an entryway or living room can feel more manageable and approachable than adding the Halloween flavor to an entire room.
No. 02 | Embrace layers and textures
Incorporate Halloween-themed items with textural elements and your moodier staple decor items. We love to mix and match textural elements like woven wicker with unique bowls and vases to create an unexpectedly spooky moment. Vintage decor items with elements like patinaed brass or smokey glass can take these nuanced groupings to the next level. If you already lean towards eclectic styling, you can make it feel more Halloween with moody tones and seasonally inspired objects.
No. 03 | Create an ambiance with taper candles
Within the right context, taper candles can make a scene feel like it’s straight out of a haunted house. We love the height that taper candles can add to a vignette, and with Halloween styling it can be fun to play with bold color palettes. Take risks with orange, black, and brown tones with taper candles and complete the spooky scene on your entryway or living room console.
