Halloween is the 31st of this month and since we are in the middle of October you had better get started thinking about how you are going to scare the children (and maybe even the adults) when they come visiting in hopes of collecting their treats.Since you probably have some party ideas and home decor selections let’s look at lighting up the outside of your home.
If you are using strings beyond the holidays it is often best to stick to white as the color of choice.But cool blues and gentle reds look equally appealing if the accent color in the room matches these hues.You can use these lights to accentuate artwork draw attention to a specific feature in the room or even complement the existing ambient lights.
We end with a real showstopper! The 1920s Odeon Glass Fringe Table Lamp from Restoration Hardware features a marble base as well as concentric rings of prisms.Bring on the Deco and bring on the light.If you want your bedside reading lamp to be the focal point of your space this is the piece for you!
A good color contrast can add to the scariness with bright orange toothy pumpkins against a blue background accentuating the fern and cross grave marker.Add in a skull for an spooky embellishment.Dark blue light can add to the creep effect.Combine that with a well-lit entrance and fog to send shivers down the spines of visitors.
Also from Create & Barrel the Cleo Table Lamp is the perfect blend of Mid-Century design and nature-inspired style.A brass base and an ivory shade are the materials of choice…
If you can’t set your mind to one style take a look at some sample design options below.In the past chandeliers were an honor only the extremely wealthy could indulge in.Good thing the privilege now extends to everyone!
