Nothing best to evoke the spirits of ghosts and witches from the spooky yet cozy fall season than putting up Halloween decorations all over the place. I particularly love decoration! Not only festive decorations like Christmas decor or Halloween decor, but I believe that even the simple details in the household have the power to change our moods and unlock new positive feelings when done right.
As a designer, I think that decoration transforms our home from a boring material block of bricks into a living entity. The right objects and colors tell stories and transport us to a movie scene, evoking and triggering new moods, and thus, new attitudes and ways to see the day.
The Mood Guide is a guide that connects the right things to the right moods, in this post I will list some nice ideas for Halloween decor that will allow you to create the most magical, mysterious, and spooky moods in the house and trigger some magic feels in the heart and soul of whoever enters your haunted house/apartment (or enchanted Maison).
I organized this post by thematic items that are obligatory to create the Halloween spirit. Have fun!
Decorating with Pumpkins
To start the season in the pumpkin spirit is nice not just to celebrate Halloween, but for the entire fall season. Pumpkins combined with fall leaves and little lights will allow you to create a spooky space or a cozy little corner in your home to get in both, Halloween and fall vibes.
Sinister and scary pumpkin decoration ideas to set a Creepy Mood
Wanna have some fun by having your guests creeped out? So the ideas below are perfect! @haus_of_sinister added some black spooky trees (which she spray and painted herself) to create an extra dark mood around her pumpkins. Scary pumpkins surrounded by candles or purple lights in your living room are also an easy way to make that scary vibes come alive.
Vintage Decor with white pumpkins
If you are tired of the same classic orange and black Halloween color palette and are looking for vintage or modern inspo, painting your pumping white is a nice option.

Cute and spooky
I love cozy little setups. Below are some of my favorite ideas to add spooky vibes with delicate and cute pumpkins. If you want an easy way to decorate with pumpkins, just combine orange pumpkins, candles, and fairy lights on the living room table or by the window.
Another nice way to make a cute and spooky addition to your home is by adding pumpkin and Halloween-inspired pillows to your bed (don’t forget to match the bedsheets with the color palette).

Skeletons and ghosts for Halloween decorations
Need ideas for decorating with skeletons? Skeletons and ghosts are many times paired together in decoration. Probably because they harmonize and create an impact with the white color. This combination of spooky creatures suits particularly well in modern black and white Halloween decorations
Hocus pocus, nightmare before Christmas are the post-popular Disney movies when thinking of Halloween and Disney!
Hocus Pocus Halloween decor
The most magical movie, yes or yes? I love how @vegavvitch created this little hocus pocus corner with funkos and @lovepaperwhises made a romantic and minimalist Hous Pocus decoration with a print, pumpkins, and a little ¨boo¨sign.
Witch hats, brooms, and black cats! that is so much nice stuff in the witchy universe to decorate for Halloween. I love how this pumpkin with hat and leaves embraces perfectly the season spirit in a simple way. Placing brooms next to the door or hanging witchy boots are false creative witchy decor for indoors or outdoors.
Wall bats and spiderwebs
Wall bats are probably the easiest and most popular way to bring some creepy vampire vibes indoors.
Spooky & Creepy Chic Halloween Decorations
Now that you got all the traditional Halloween inspiration let’s go to my favorite style: Spooky chic. I love a modern, witchy aesthetic, that makes your home look like a classy and sophisticated witch home rather than an artificial and temporary set.
White, gold, and rusty gold are the right colors to achieve a chic creepy mood. Crows are mysterious birds with powerful mythology that also suits perfectly this type of decoration.
