When I think of Halloween the colours that instantly come to mind are black and orange. Although the colours can be a bit tacky if done the right way, your Halloween decor can be very tastefully spooktacular. I have not decorated our living room for Halloween before so I wanted to keep it traditional by having a black and orange palette, but I also wanted the decor to be modern. Here are my tips for decorating your living room for Halloween and pulling together a modern spooky look.

Glam Up Your Coffee Table 

Decorating your coffee table will instantly set the mood for a spooktacular Halloween decor. To achieve a modern look I mixed Halloween decor together with everyday living room decor accents. Candles are not only a decor essential they are also perfect for setting a spooky vibe. I also added  beautiful silver metallic vases with flowers that matched my orange colour palette, along with a skull shaped plate, and of course a skull as the centerpiece that also lights up. Looking forward to having this on when we have friends over for a scary movie marathon on Halloween Day.

No-Carve Pumpkin Accents

Pumpkins are a synonym with Halloween. I wanted my pumpkin choices to be modern and mess free, so I picked up these beautiful coloured glass pumpkins instead. Not wanting to deal with carving out pumpkins and making them pretty by spending hours on a DIY project, I thought about my colour palette and picked up these. I love the details of all of the pumpkins, from the splatter to the pearl detailing glass pumpking, these are so fun and modern. Jack O’ Lanterns are beautiful, but I prefer them for the outdoors.

Moody Wall

Make things more interesting with a creative wall decor display. Your wall decor is as important for creating the perfect feel for your Halloween modern decor. To create a Halloween wall decor that is modern but spooky I went with a focal piece of a large velvet spider web and then I added a bat garland above and below it.

Halloween Looking Throw Pillows

Throw pillows are the final touch for putting together the perfect modern Halloween living room decor. Since I already added tons of Halloween related accent for the rest of the room, when it came to the throw pillows I went with a leopard black and white print to ensure that the room is dose not become overwhelming with Halloween themed items.  

Dress Up Your Pet

I could not help but dress up Margot or Halloween too. She looks adorable in the little black and orange sweater I picked up for her from HomeSense.
