a haute halloween

October 19, 2011 § 1 Comment

Next to Christmas, I think I’d have to say Halloween is my second favorite holiday.

Growing up I’d watch the annual Martha Stewart Halloween Special on repeat; Martha schooled me in the ways of everything halloween decor. It was eerie and mysterious- but undeniably chic. So forget the tacky and gory… and please keep the black and orange to a minimum… this is the year to have one haute halloween

vintage inspired Halloween decor from anders ruff design

windows take on a dramatic effect by using black paper curtains that mimic gothic architecture

the black crows of this centerpiece add a spooky touch and is ideal for an entry table

LOVE this super eerie (and fun) photo wall mural! This one in particular used to be available at Pottery Barn but they unforunately discontinued it. However pretty much any Kinkos or signage store can blow up an image of your choice to create your very own wall mural. Perhaps the image below?

paper silhouette of a werewolf/man

another fabulous use of paper cut-outs! love all the bats

here I go with the garland again.. love this festive halloween version

who would have thought skeletons could be so chic? since we can’t all pay the $100 million for Damien Hirst’s bejeweled skull… Martha helps us create a version that is equally sparkly yet affordable

Perfect for the Halloween dinner party; why eat drink and be merry when you can eat drink and be scary?
