Not-so-scary Halloween decoration inspiration

As much fun as it is to have your home decorated for Halloween, it could also be quite a challenge, especially if you want to turn your home into a full-fledged haunted house. And though we like the challenge of creating a décor that gives everyone creeps, this year we prefer a lighter side of Halloween that will set a subtle festive tone in your home for longer than just one evening.

A small pop of orange will make a strong statement in black surroundings.

If instead of a sense of scariness, you want to go with sophistication that will retain the atmosphere of the Halloween season for a whole year, consider putting bright oranges and midnight blacks on your floor:
