Halloween interiors – no tricks, plenty of treats

Halloween approaches and, quite frankly, this year, we'll take any excuse for a party. Invite five friends over (if restrictions allow) and dress up your house with these interiors trinkets.

Black Magic

Hmmm, an omen of death. That’s exactly what I want on my sideboard. And actually, if it looks like this super-cool crow lamp from Selfridges, I really do. Just keep that bulb away from inquisitive little fingers. “Leave it! I SAID LEAVE IT!”

Scare Tactics

A clever and subtle wink to Halloween that will delight trick and treaters (well, their parents) as they wait expectantly on your doorstep for a bag of e-numbers that will keep them bouncing off the walls until 11pm. Tip: the doormat can’t stand the rain so keep inside or in a porch.

Gothic Charm

These candlesticks by Michael Aram are actually inspired by the Gingko tree, but all we’re seeing is twiggy, gothic loveliness to set the tone of your table setting. Handmade and able to hold four tapered candles, turn down the lights and let these set the mood.

Shadow-dancing

You can’t do Halloween without candles and you can’t do candles without long matches. Thankfully, Stocks of Marlow have just the thing – elegant, black, and in a jar with a strike panel on the bottom. The Morticia Addams of firelighters.

Carry On

The charming thing about this recycled wood tray from Burford Garden Co. is that while it does look spooky, it also looks beautiful and would do just as well bringing a clutch of Aperols onto the lawn midsummer as it would handing around treats for your Halloween bash (but no more than five guests, please!)

Dark Arts

While we don’t need the excuse of Halloween to gorge ourselves with chocolate, it’s always nice to make an event of it, don’t you think? We’re rather taken with Prescott’s solid dark chocolate ‘Trick’ or ‘Treat’ letters. Trouble is, you really have to buy both boxes, don’t you? Shame.

Webby Wonder

OH MY GOD, there’s a spider on the tea towel. Quickly! Quickly! Get it out… oh… hang on, it’s… it’s actually on the design, isn’t it? I didn’t realise. Sorry about that. Bit embarrassing.

All in the head

How do you like your martinis? Olive skewered by a diamanté skull? Yes, us too. Up your cocktail hour game with these beauties by Joanna Buchanan that are almost too lovely to not use as brooches and hat pins. If, indeed, we wore any of those things anymore.

Hang about

How’s this from Next for super-simple decorations that won’t fill the house with single-use plastic tat? Head into the garden (or out into the countryside), grab the witchiest-looking twigs you can find, pop them in a vase then hang a few of these velvet beauties. Bish bash bosh, Fester’s your uncle.
