Sophisticatedly Spooky Decorating Tips from Country Living Magazine

The October issue of Country Living Magazine is all about Falloween. The decorating pros rounded up tips for creating a sophisticatedly spooky setting in your home this fall. 


The Table

Different shades and textures of black mingle with subtle amber-toned metallics to create the basis of this beautifully eerie setting. Add in some dried gourds, spindly black candlesticks and fresh blooms in black vases to finish off your sophisticatedly spooky tablescape. 


Enter if You Dare

The spookiness should start the moment guests enter your home. Here's an easy DIY project to create a festive wreath to crow about:

  1. Spray paint a grapevine wreath black (wreath and spray paint available at any craft store)
  2. Use black wire to secure slot-together wood crows
  3. Hang on your front door with thick gingham ribbon (ribbon available at any craft store)
