8 Halloween Accents You Can Use Year-Round


Spooky décor doesn’t have to be a one-use purchase. If you choose wisely, you can find pieces that work for Halloween—and any other time, too. Here, Jessica McCarthy, design director at Decorist, shares her top eight picks.

1. Pedestal bowl

“This great-looking bowl offers a striking presentation of Halloween treats,” McCarthy says. “And its craftsman-style, antler base is also a creative way to tie in nature any day of the year.” Place it on a tabletop or bookcase to add an earthy feel to your space.

2. French Check table linens

Chic and sophisticated, this black and white checkered tablecloth brings an upscale vibe to your Halloween dinner party. On any other occasion, it gives your table a Parisian bistro feel.

3. Candleholders

These colorful, handblown glass candleholders look like Gothic art anywhere you put them—with or without candles. 

4. Pendant lighting

This lamp’s gourd-like shape is subtly reminiscent of a pumpkin. The brass finish feels industrial and edgy, making it a sleek addition to any type of space.

5. Accent chest

With its glam black and gold tones and lattice pattern, this mid-century modern chest makes the perfect backdrop for a Halloween snacks setup. On other days of the year, it’s a dressy piece for a foyer or bedroom. 

6. Shower curtain

The black and white tree motif looks mysterious for Halloween—just add some creepy ephemera on the countertop. After the party, it’s a graphic element that looks beautiful in your bathroom. 

7. Wall art

Skulls don’t always have to be scary. These rustic sketches of deer skulls in trendy black frames give a nod to Halloween—and also add character to your walls the rest of the year.

8. Cocktail glasses

The ombre color and cobblestone texture of these glasses make them an elegant pick for a party—and an eerie one, when filled with a Halloween elixir (try our Wicked Green Goblin Cocktail recipe ).
