How to get your home Halloween haute

Are you ready to make your Halloween haute, haute, haute? That’s right. Halloween isn’t all trick-or-treating and goofy jack-o’-lanterns. No, with the right decor, your Halloween can be classy and chic. But if you’re a purist at heart, don’t fear. You can find all you need for a spooktacular holiday at the showrooms in the Dallas Design District.

A Macabre Affair

Black and white is a classic combination to get your party guests in a ghostly mood. Throw a black tablecloth and a white runner on your hors d’oeuvres table. Add a few black-and-white painted pumpkins and a skull candle or a white bust with a black masquerade mask and you’ve got the perfect setting for your ghoulish gathering. Don’t forget about tableware to serve your Halloween-themed food. For that, check out the offerings at the Bernadette Schaeffler Collection.

Rustic Charm

Maybe you’d prefer a shabby-chic Halloween. Start by assembling natural and rustic materials to represent the fall season. Try grouping multi-colored gourds and pumpkins on the porch in front of a distressed, glassless window frame. Weave a natural cloth such as burlap through the all the items to tie the ensemble together. For fabric ideas, you’re sure to find something at Kravet Fabrics.

Mood Lighting

Lighting can help create a bewitching mood. For just the right amount of brightness, strategically place a few black iron lanterns or a pair of candelabras complete with tapered candles throughout your party area. The lighting collection at Murray’s Iron Works is a good resource for ideas and supplies.

Your Own Unique Spin

Try something completely unexpected with a unique piece nobody will see coming. There’s an endless supply of out-of-the-box items in the accessory collections of Again & Again and the Cool Stuff Gallery at Griffin Trading Company. Incorporate a pair of animal horn candlesticks or a taxidermy piece into any of the above ideas to create your own brand of haute Halloween.

Whether you have a big Halloween to-do planned or you just want to celebrate your favorite holiday in style, the shops at the Dallas Design District are sure to spark your imagination. So ditch those plastic jack-o’-lanterns and janky skeletons and wow your friends and neighbors with the chicest Halloween décor on the block.
