Black White and Orange Halloween Decorating in our Living room

Happy October!
October is such a fun month! You may even agree that it's also the prettiest month of all. I just love the magic that October brings with all of the pretty leaves in bright beautiful colors. And of course, probably the Happiest thing about October is Halloween!

I had Way too much fun decorating our living room for Halloween and I can't wait to show it to you today! I'm also excited to be joining the lovely Kristen at Ella Claire along with a large group of super creative bloggers who are all sharing their Halloween decorating as well.  This should be a really fun tour for you to take today full of lots of wonderful ideas. You can find all of the links at the end of this post.  

 I stuck to a traditional Halloween color palette this year and incorporated lots of black, white, and Orange throughout our living room.

When it comes to decorating for Halloween, I typically like to focus on decorating just one area in our home, rather than have decorations scattered throughout. This allows me to really have fun creating a festive space while keeping the rest of our home clean and calm.  Let's face it, Halloween decor can be a little intense sometimes, a little bit goes a long way :) 

I'm tickled with how our fireplace all came together this year.  I pretty much added ALL of our Halloween decorations to it. I just kept layering more and more stuff to it and in the end I think it looks rather cheerful. 

These are all decorations I've collected over the years.  The only thing that's new is the black  plastic ball garland that I found at a yardsale this summer.  The black crow that hangs on a stand balanced by a glass orb is something we've had for years but it use to be a rust color. I just gave it a coat of black spray paint and  brought it inside. I can't believe I hadn't thought to paint it before. It's so perfect for Halloween.

I also whipped together this wreath.  I spray painted an old grapevine wreath black and then I simply added an orange leaf garland to it along with a Boo sign and a large spider.

 My Halloween decorations involve a lot of spiders, snakes, bats and rats.
What types of decorations are you drawn to?

If you're not big on Halloween decorations then a couple of easy ways to add a fun touch to your home is to 1. slant your pictures that are already hanging on your walls.  This is so simple to do and instantly adds a haunted-house feel. I've even tucked a few plastic bugs into the corners of my frames. You could also add some spider webs too if you want.

And 2. adding anything Orange is another no-fail way to add a touch of Halloween to a space. This orange pillow paired next to a black and white striped pillow definitely Screams Halloween.

I also love to light candles this time of year. Candles have a way of making a space feel magical.

So what do you think of my black, white, and orange Halloween decorating in our living room?
