Gothic Glam

Less haunted, more haute; here’s how to give your house a stylish over­haul this Hal­loween (and beyond)

Look (UK) - - HEY BUSY GIRL! -

You might have sweets stashed away for trick-or-treaters but the only thing we want call­ing at our front door is the de­liv­ery man with these gothic good­ies in tow. It goes with­out sayin’ that these home buys fit in with the spooky vibe; how­ever, when they look this good, the only thing scream­ing will be our (de­pleted) bank bal­ance. Vel­vet arm­chairs, moss mar­ble and Beetle­juice stripes – you can rest as­sured your love for these pieces will go way beyond fright night. As for pump­kins? That’s your pre­rog­a­tive.

‘I like to imag­ine that I live in a gothic mansion and what bet­ter time to re­alise this dream than Hal­loween? Crushed vel­vets, baroque light­ing and more can­dles than the Queen’s next birth­day cake – I’m down with the lot.’ han­nah banks-walker, deputy fash­ion news ed­i­tor
