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