This season, fashion and interior designers are summoning some creepy-chic looks with wallpapers, fabrics, and accessories featuring spine-chilling symbols of Halloween. From skulls, to haunted forests, to spider webs, these looks are cool enough to work throughout the whole year. Check them out:
Dig up some style with Alexander McQueen’s umbrella fit with a skull handle or flocked velvet skull wallpaper from Winfield Thybony. The paper has an intricate design that from far away looks as though it’s an abstract webbing pattern. We also like York’s skull & crossbones for a Gothic look, which looks great paired with softer, more feminine accessories.
Alexander McQueen Gold-Tone Skull Handle Umbrella
Louis Vuitton’s show at Spring 2014 Paris Fashion Week transformed the Cour Carree du Louvre into a spine-tingling haunted forest. Get the look with wallpaper & fabrics featuring dark and dead tree branches.
The spider web is one of nature’s most stunning pieces of art. From embroidered flats by Charlotte Olympia to Graham & Brown’s iridescent wallpaper, silky webs are all the rage right now.
Dark Fairy Tale
Original fairy tales are not the sugary sweet versions that we are familiar with. Stories like Hansel & Gretel, Pied Piper of Hamelin, and Little Red Riding Hood are actually quite dark. Conjure one of these fables with Big Bad Wolf pumps or a wallpaper depicting a hair-raising scene.
