The most spooky and terrifying thing about Halloween is how quickly it flies by. Within minutes of setting out broomsticks, pumpkins, and spiderwebs, it's gone in the blink of an eye and before you know it, you're hurtling full speed ahead into the end of autumn and the winter holidays.
To revel in the ghouls and gourds a little longer, it's worth scoping out decor that'll last you long after October 31st. While skeleton garlands and hanging bats may look a bit funny strung up in April, there are plenty of Halloween and fall decorations that are perfectly adaptable for all times of year.
Magnolia Beale Matte Black Accent Vase
Of the two most popular Halloween colors, black is perhaps the easiest to work with long after the holiday has past. Objects in any shade of midnight can be dressed up to look spooky but then subsequently taken down a notch to serve as a lovely year-round fixture in your home—as is the case with this pretty accent vase.
Bourina Throw Blanket
You can never have too many throw blankets, and this holds even more truth when it's chilly outside. While orange is usually associated with autumn, this pumpkin-colored option has a light enough hue to work for fall and every season after, too.
RTMISA Moon Phase Wall Hanging
Moons are a cool symbol to hang up any time of year, but the black shade of this garland means it's equally as fitting for fall and Halloween. A wide range of decor styles can work this in, whether you're a fan of dark academia or something lighter and Scandi-inspired.
Matilda Goad & Co. Bar Cart
Adorned with gourds and a vase of wheat and this bar cart is perfect for fall time. During the rest of the year it can be dressed up as a poppy, modern burst of color in any living room corner.
MBVVLZJVN 30Pcs Black Pampas Grass, 17.5 inch
Sure, black pampas grass is spooky when it's Halloween, but after the haunting season passes, these are simply a chic addition to any vase, especially in monochromatic color schemes. For a little less drama, mix these pieces in with other neutral-colored botanicals.
McalisterTextiles Heritage Outdoor Square Pillow Cover
Once your interiors are adorned in pumpkin garlands or ghost decals, it's time to take your decorating skills outside. It doesn't have to be anything too drastic, but these plaid pillows are a nice change when the leaves start changing. Outside of fall, they're still relevant, particularly for rustic, farmhouse, and traditional-style homes.
Crate & Barrel Faux Black Branch Wreath
When it comes to modern (and not-so-cheesy) Halloween decor, you'll want to reach for a bare branch wreath. The black color of this faux version wreath makes it eery when paired with pumpkins or fake spiderwebs. At the same time, it's a nice nature-inspired nod when hung by itself on a door outside or in.
SIN Weylyn Candelabra, Black
No Halloween-ready table can be without kooky candles. This cool candelabra is an ultra-chic Halloween decoration when laden with black tapers. Throughout the rest of the year, white tapers or other candles help make it look sleek and modern—though black at all times is also pretty cool.
Millwood Pines 3 Piece Gavril Mushroom Sculpture Set
Mushrooms can be found during any season, but something about these wooden decorative pieces feels a little autumnal. They're perfect when tucked among a fall-inspired display and are equally as endearing when left up, even when the pumpkins and ghouls are packed away.
Kingcraft 6 Pack Large Birch Logs for Fireplace
Speaking of wooden elements, birch logs look lovely in a home, whether styled in a faux fireplace or stacked neatly in an iron crate. It's a nice way to bring a more permanent piece of nature indoors (no need to burn these decorative ones). These can stick around from fall to winter but won't look out of place in warmer seasons either.
Schoolhouse Amber Glass Mug
Glass orange mugs feel a touch retro and are perfect for filling the shelves of a mid-century modern kitchen, or even in a more rustic farmhouse space. When fall arrives, they're a natural fit for keeping out or displaying on shelves—and ideal for cups of cocoa and that one very famous latte.
Ivy Bronx Breck Metal Table Lamp
You may be looking to emulate the dark and eery atmosphere of a haunted house during October, but a reading light still helps. And it doesn't hurt if it looks like it could be found in a well-designed spooky mansion. For one that's ultra-modern but moonlights as supremely Halloween-y, this is it.
Sol 72 Outdoor Laub Indoor / Outdoor Area Rug in Sand/Orange
Reminiscent of pumpkin season? Yes. Ideal as a popsicle-hued rug in the summer? Also yes. This bordered runner rug can be rolled out once and kept out from summer to fall. One way to make decor work throughout the calendar year is leaning on its surrounding accent pieces to dictate the mood.
P.F. Candle Co. Dusk– 3.75 fl oz Reed Diffuser
When it comes to fall scent staples, diffusers are up there as well as candles. This particular diffuser could be interpreted in one of two ways. It looks lovely as an earthy accent piece at any point in the year, but it's also relatively autumnal with its wooden sticks and brown bottle.
Chasing Paper Twigs Wallpaper
Wallpapering a room or an accent wall sounds a bit extreme all in the name of one season, but this twiggy pattern looks lovely 365 days a year. The print is a gentle choice for any room thanks to its line drawings and muted hue but it feels pretty darn fitting when Halloween comes around.
H&M Home Small Seagrass Storage Basket
Baskets are certainly a timeless and seasonless piece of decor, yet they do have an association with harvesting. Fill them with gourds or other autumnal bits from September through November. As soon as the seasons change, they instantly become great vessels for any other holiday-themed decorations or as storage units for everyday necessities.
Red Barrel Studio 2 Piece Metal Tabletop Lantern Set
At face value, these are sleek and minimal black lanterns. They look phenomenal on a doorstep or styled near a fireplace with tea light candles flickering inside. The second October sets foot through the door, these can be witch-ified. Add a hat atop a larger one or a broomstick next to it. You can also add fake cobwebs and spiders inside.
