Halloween Decor by Aesthetic – Shelby

It’s no secret that your friend Shelby here is a huge fan of Halloween and every year around this time it very much shows in my house. If you’re anything like me and can’t wait put up your fall/Halloween decor as soon as the weather starts to change, this post is for you.

Before we get started, I’d like tell you a little bit about how I’ve chosen to decorate my home for Halloween. I primarily decorate my house by the color scheme in each room – but if I would have had this blog as a reference when I first started picking pieces up, I think I would have a much more cohesive looking space.



Minimal Glamour

First I’m going to start off with the Halloween line that started it all. After Maggie watched my Halloween decor walk through, she immediately sent me an SOS text about her decor. Maggie has a very minimalist, yet glamorous aesthetic and I thought that this line of Halloween decor from Joann’s this year would be a great fit for her new apartment. The Dark and Deco line is very Gatsby meets Halloween and I gotta say I am here for it. If you have love everything marble, with neutral touches of black and gold – these pieces are to die for. This is my favorite line from Joann’s this year because of the sophistication of the products. They won’t overwhelm your space, but instead give you the eerie, jewel encrusted look you were going for.

Cottage Core


This next line is aimed at the girly girl of the group. The one that doesn’t stray too far from the florals and pinks, but still wants to participate in spooky season. This aesthetic I would call pretty/edgy or what the TikTokers might call cottage core. Although I definitely don’t fit into the realm of girly girl – this line from Michaels is perfect solely for the fact that it’s something we’ve never seen before in Halloween. The best part of the this assortment though is that it includes pieces that could easily be used in your home decor all year round. These pieces include welcome signs, pillows, florals and wreaths. Run don’t walk to pick up these items though because from what I’ve heard, they’re selling out fast!

Modern Farmhouse


Modern Farmhouse has quickly become one of the most popular home decor trends thus far and I definitely hopped on the bandwagon. My choice for modern farmhouse, however, is not so much a Halloween line, but rather an entire store. Kirkland’s Halloween decor this year embodies farmhouse to a tee in my opinion. The bold lettering and rustic tempered metal give you a look that will bring all of your current farmhouse pieces together. If you fit the farmhouse aesthetic and you visit the Kirkland’s brick and mortar store, be prepared to spend a little more than you anticipated. Although most of these pieces aren’t too pricey, you might fall in love with more than just the Halloween section.

Boho Chic

I don’t know about you, but when I think of boho decor, I immediately think of Urban Outfitters. And the same is true for all your boho Halloween needs. I love Urban because they very much consider themselves a lifestyle brand so the majority of their Halloween decor is practical and can be left out all year. I personally always find myself checking Urban’s website this time of year for candles, tarot cards and crystals. This Halloween section is the perfect fit for the girl looking bohemian decor with a touch of eerie charm.

Did I mention they have the best dog costumes? I mean come on.
