Spooky Little Apartment Halloween Home Tour: Living Room

A Halloween home tour: take a peek inside my living room to see how I decorate for October 31 | spookylittlehalloween.com

I love decorating for Halloween. Pumpkins, skulls, bats, ghosts, lights, jack-o-lanterns…my list of loves is a mile long. My style of decorating is definitely a little creepy and spooky, but for the most part…I just love to douse my apartment in a healthy dose of black, orange and purple each year. No blood and guts for this girl.

Earlier this month, I shared my 9 favorite ways to decorate for Halloween – a list of the key items I use to make my home spooky and a little haunted. How that came to be was kind of an accident: my Halloween decor collection is a little out of control…as in at least seven plastic tubs and an assorted collection of cardboard boxes full of everything a Halloween lover could possible want. (Most of which was bought in the name of my Halloween party.)

But when I moved into my apartment last year, it called for a massive re-evaluation of the entire collection. I ended up downsizing my home collection to my favorite things – the rest stays in storage, ready and waiting to be used at Halloweenie Roast. Some day I hope to have a home big enough to hold it all!

In the mean time…I fill my 700-square feet with all my favorites. Here’s a quick look at my living room.

(By the way, I’m not one of those girls who lives in a Pinterest-perfect space. I’m a real person living in a real apartment. My style is eclectic and cozy – or as one of my friends recently put it, groupie/hippie/granny cottage. I’ll gladly take that over white-washed walls that make it look like a museum any day.)

Welcome to my living room! It’s so wonderfully cozy already, and the Halloween decor makes it feel even more cozy.

I love these books so much – I scored them one year at a local bookstore and they make for awesome (and unique) decor.

Meet Sir Clayton! He might be my BEST Halloween find ever. I bought him in 2012 for my Harry Potter themed party. He was supposed to be $80. I got him for $18. To this day, I still don’t know how. But he is a staple and welcomes my guest with a clever sign each year.

Spooky! I love these little window clings – they blend in just enough to scare me.

      Thank you, Megan! :) I’ll be sharing the rest of my apartment through the end of next week.

      I can absolutely make a list of where I’ve found all my goodies. They come from all over – is there something in particular from this post that caught you eye? Let me know, and I can share where it came from.

      Thank you! :) It’s probably my favorite apartment/space that I have ever lived in.

      I still have “pinch me” moments about Sir Clayton. He’s one of those Halloween decorations that stays out year-round.
