Silver and Black Halloween Decor Ideas | Meredith Ehler | Decorator | Washington, D.C.

For me, Halloween decor can be divided into in two separate categories: cool colors and warm colors.  I love grouping my silver and black decor together to make one large impact. My dining room favors this color palate so this is where I put my shimmery decor.  The rest of my home is filled with a warmer color palate so I display my fall decor with oranges and reds everywhere else.


I pack away some of my regular decor items during the holidays to make room for some of the Halloween items.  I want the fall decor to pop so it’s necessary to remove anything that will compete.


I have to have bling, and there is no such thing as too much!  But it’s a must to balance it with something that absorbs light like a velvet runner.  Otherwise everything will be to shiny and reflective and it will be hard for one’s eye to focus and enjoy the view.


I recommend to have fun with your style!  I loved that sparkly, black pumpkin so I bought it, not knowing what I would do with it.  I moved it around until I found it a home in my mercury glass bowl from Pottery Barn.  If you are out shopping and see something that speaks to you, buy it. Then come home and move it around from room to room and see where it looks best.  Happy Decorating!  -Meredith
