Decorate your home with contemporary and chic Halloween decor by mixing a conventional color scheme with modern details. This year, take inspiration from literature for unique fall holiday decorations. Chilling tales by famous early writers of horror fiction and Gothic classics are perfect inspirations for storybook-themed horror decor. Themed home accessories like throw pillows and candles can help infuse the theme into your home. Here are some storybook horror decor ideas.

Mantle and Coffee Table Displays
Create simple and stylish displays with books and everyday objects. Use the books that you already have in your home library for this Gothic literature-inspired Halloween decor. Hardbound volumes of classic horror tales like Mary Shelly’s ‘Frankenstein’, Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’ and Gothic fiction titles are ideal for making this literary Halloween display. Arrange the books on the fireplace mantle or coffee table. Display them with the spines facing out and propped open to pages with illustrations to create a spooky scene.

Place pillar candles in hurricane lanterns and tapers with candleholders next to the books. Opt for battery-operated candles so you can light up your display at night. Choose cast iron candleholders and mercury glass hurricanes as these decorative objects are ideal for a spellbinding Halloween display with vintage charm. These home accessories also have a modern appeal and can be a part of your everyday decor after the celebrations. Upcycle old books into book page pumpkins for a unique touch to your Halloween decor. Look for easy tutorials for book page pumpkins online and make several in different sizes for a striking cluster.

Home Accessories
Besides mantle displays, add themed decorations to other rooms in your home. Decorative accessories like throw pillows can be used to carry the theme throughout your home. Choose throw pillows with applique work and printed graphics for Halloween festivities. Pillows decorated with popular Halloween motifs and fall-inspired prints are a good choice for stylish Halloween decor. Simple pillow shams in holiday colors like grey, black, deep purple and orange are subtle touches you can add to your home. These themed throw pillows can easily be a part of your contemporary fall decor even after Halloween.

Set the scene for Halloween with these contemporary decorations and displays.
