If you have a large display unit which becomes a feature wall, why not utilise this to your advance and ass some classy seasonal decorations that compliment your existing décor? By adding small glass or ceramic pumpkins to your display, you are able to add seasonal touches that are both subtle and classy but pack an autumnal feel. You can experiment with different sizes, colours, and materials to create different looks and atmospheres. People typically think of bright orange when it comes to pumpkins, but you can find a fresh perspective using creams or sage or perhaps darker shades of orange to create a classic and traditional look.

Outdoor décor does not have to take the form of fibreglass tombstones or plastic skeletons that dangle from your door. Instead, add autumnal wreaths to your front door to set the tone as soon as you walk through the door. Adding black lanterns double up as seasonal decoration as well as Halloween décor to gardens, doorsteps, and porches – what may come across as simple outdoor lighting, can provide a sinister ambience.
