Halloween can seriously mess with your kitchen décor, can’t it?
The kids with all their pumpkin-coloured fun will play havoc with your colour-scheme too – unless you’ve gone for a 1970s inspired retro burned-orange theme, of course.
You’d think they’d never heard of Feng Shui?
But there’s plenty of tasteful stuff out there that’ll not only mean your friends and neighbours don’t mark you out as an angry anti-Halloween grump but gear that will actually look pretty cool next to your Aga, range cooker or state-of-the-art polished chrome kitchen equipment.
It doesn’t have to be snot-green or inspired by blood-red horror-movie entrails to give your kitchen that All Hallows glow this year.
How about this Halloween-inspired black feather wreath?
Yeah, cool isn’t it?
Or this large JackOLantern Kettle Candleholder?
See where we’re going with this? It doesn’t have to be naff orange plastic to evoke that Halloween feeling.
Check out this raven candelabra. Very, very cool.
Or this Halloween doormat that’d look very ‘seasonal’ just inside the kitchen door (and save muddy Halloween footprints from dirtying your kitchen floor).
There’s some seriously good stuff out there, gear that you can wheel out every year that’s as far removed from black plastic bat-wings, orange plastic pumpkins and witches hats as possible.
