Living in a super tiny space with little room for anything unnecessary makes decorating for holidays both difficult and annoying. Every time I need to find a space to store something I look into my closet and see four boxes labeled "xmas" that only get used three weeks out of the year. I then let out an audible "uuuggghhhh" and start frantically throwing things away. Although I don't want to part with most of these holiday items for when we have a larger place, I have become very picky about what gets displayed. I've seen a shift in my holiday decor aesthetic from pretty over the top to subdued and neutral in order to keep me from feeling claustrophobic during this time of year. Last Christmas I stuck with greenery, black accents, and white lights and I loved the simplicity of it. This Halloween I'm going with the same plan and keeping everything in a black, white, and gold palette. For you fellow apartment dwellers, here are my picks for some simple Halloween decorations, most of which you could probably use year round, or at least for fall/winter.
black branch wreath from crate & barrel // snake candleholder from west elm // x-ray glassware from west elm // gold-tipped flatware from anthropology // pinch large bowl from cb2 // cake pedestal from cb2 // diy gold geo no-carve pumpkin from lovely indeed // skull candle set from urban outfitters
