We actually got TWO questions concerning this home decorating conundrum…
So hubs and I love nothing more than monsters, Halloween, and fall in general.
How do I tie that all in to a general year round house theme without just putting up Halloween decorations all year? (…With the exception of our extensive Spooky Town collection that will OF COURSE be up all year). -Kaci
The husband and I want to add more gore, horror, zombies and skeletons in our decor. Unfortunately, I’m finding it difficult to find many of such home accents outside of Halloween decorations. Although they’re fun, most Halloween decorations aren’t the best quality and are not meant to be used all year.
I can find pieces if I search thought Etsy, but does anyone know of a store that actually sells terrifying home decor? -Meghann
Oh, you mean OTHER than using a bonesaw for your pastries? Our best advice would be to avoid home decor items that include orange, black, and plastic. The combination of these three things inevitably feel both distinctly Halloweeny, and very much like temporary seasonal decor.
Perhaps you can aim for monsters and creepiness year-round, but using the more traditional seasonal colors — deep green and bloody red ghouls in the winter, pale pastel gauzy ghostly creatures in the spring, bright saturated orange, red, and green zombies in the summer?
Let’s see what we can scheme up, on the fly…
But let’s open it up to our darker-minded Offbeat Homies: how can you keep the creepy spirit in your home year-round, without just looking like you forgot to take down your Halloween decorations?
