You think of Halloween colors, black and orange immediately come to mind, right? And then purple and green? I love mixing it up, no matter the holiday/season, but I’m a bit eclectic anyway. So, when it comes to the Halloween decor for your home or a party, you should embrace whatever colors you want! Stay traditional, or go wild!
In celebration of decorating for the season, here are 7 non-traditional Halloween color themes to help you step out of the box.
I don’t personally gravitate toward pastels, but these colors together really make for a softer decor that I actually like. Using props and pumpkins that are traditionally Halloween, then painting them pastel blues, pinks and greens, helps pull the look together without making it seem to Spring-like.
Purple and Black definitely fill my heart with joy, but bringing in white helps add a beautiful contrast. This is definitely a color scheme I’d use for a Halloween party and even the ghostie additions are so fun.
This color scheme almost feels like a Southwestern flair added to the traditional orange and black and I’m so here for it. This makes it almost too easy, since you probably have gold decor you can add to this color scheme, and then just paint some pumpkins teal to seal the deal.
Using green as your pop of color to an otherwise monochrome feel, is pretty dynamic. I always fall for contrasting decor in colors like this and add different tones of green with the skeletons and black centerpieces can really pull it all together.
You can never, ever go wrong with stripes! Keeping it monochrome, or adding some color, stripes just bring in that Beetlejuice flair and it’s perfectly Halloween. I can definitely see adding stripes to some of these other color schemes to just take it up several more notches.
The color pink has really grown on me over the years and I didn’t realize how much sass it adds to Halloween Decor. Keeping the traditional colors again, but adding some non-traditional pink and gold makes this color scheme seem posh-party worthy.
I can see the mad science portion of this color scheme with the shades of blue and whether you would go that route or not, the blue and black seem creepily appropriate. I think Tiffany Blue goes well on skulls and apothecary bottles.
