Halloween is just around the corner, so it’s time to start decorating! We love seeing our homeowners at Georgian Sands decorating their homes and porches for the Fall season, especially with locally sourced items like pumpkins from Round’s Ranch or a local artisan at the Wasaga Beach Farmer’s Market. No matter what your home’s design aesthetic is, you’re sure to find a way to incorporate some spooky fall elements into your décor. Up your Halloween and Fall Décor game with these trends and get into the spirit of the season!
Go green and use Fall foliage to create table centrepieces, accents, and wreaths to incorporate natural elements into your Halloween style. DIYing your décor is both cost effective and environmentally friendly.
Swap out your throw pillows or pillow covers for seasonal ones. Consider thrifting some Halloween-inspired t-shirts from Charmed Again Consignment and stitching them into some unique pillows for your home.
No room for orange in your home décor? Not to worry! Incorporating other Halloween elements that work with your design like shades of green, purple as well as subtle hints of spookiness, will add a touch of Halloween to your home without changing your whole colour scheme.
Pumpkins everywhere! Place pumpkins in unconventional places or decorate them in bold colours to add a touch of fun to your decorating. Paint your pumpkin a funky colour or pattern to really confuse your visitors!

Don’t neglect your front porch or entryway when considering Halloween décor! Why not get a fun seasonal doormat or find a Halloween-inspired porch light? One option you can try is to use fallen branches and a rounded metal coat hanger to make your own witch-y door wreath. When in doubt, carved pumpkins are the perfect Halloween-season, front-porch decor!
Kraft paper and chalkboards are great for creating fun Halloween signs and designs to decorate your home and are staples of Fall décor. Consider this a perfect DIY activity to do as a family!
Solid matte black is a popular choice for décor this year. A matte finish adds a touch of sophistication and modernity to any design choice, while creating an intense sense of depth perfect for adding a touch of spook. Try incorporating matte black throw blankets and pillows into your décor this year if you’re into a more subtle look.
With Cottagecore being a popular design style this year, consider incorporating some elements of this décor style by using seasonal plaids and ginghams, or vintage Halloween wall hangings. Use foliage, cozy textiles, candles, and vintage elements to embody Cottagecore this season.
Embody the Season of the Witch by incorporating some magical elements like crystals, dry plants or candles. You can also use fun frog, crow, or bat statues to give your home a witchy vibe. When in doubt, set up a Witch Parking Station by putting various brooms or mops bottoms up by your door with a sign.
When in doubt, fall back on creepy! Fake blood, various sized spiders, cheesy plastic pumpkins or even thrifted dolls will all add a touch of spook to your home.
