Decorating my living room for Halloween is one of my favourite things to do. 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 living room decor can be very tastefully spooktacular. To decorate our living room for Halloween, I picked up some cute items from HomeSense. I wanted to keep the decor theme traditional by having a black and orange palette, but also modern to match our personal style. Here are my tips how to decorate your living room for Halloween and pulling together a modern spooky look.

Glam Up Your Coffee Table for Halloween

Decorating your coffee table will instantly set the mood for a spooktacular Halloween decor. To achieve a modern look I mixed Halloween living room 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 to match my orange colour palette, along with a skull shaped plate, and of course a skull as the centerpiece that also lights up.

No-Carve Pumpkin Accents

When it comes to decorating your living room for Halloween, pumpkins are an essential. 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 fun pumpkins from HomeSense for a very reasonable as well. 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 Halloween Themed Wall

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

Halloween Inspired 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 accents to the rest of the room, when it came to the throw pillows I went with a leopard black and white print so that the room does not become overwhelming with Halloween themed items.

Dress Up Your Pet for Halloween

I could not help but dress up Margot or Halloween. She looks adorable in the little black and orange sweater I picked up from HomeSense. There are tons of options in store, depending on your pet’s size as well what you want to dress them up as.
