If there’s one thing we learned from stylist Erika Lauren of @peonyandhoney, it’s that fall and Halloween decor don’t always have to go the dark, moody, or gaudy route. With the right touch—plus the right Halloween rug—any space can exude an elegant, autumnal vibe.
Here we talked to Erika about her inspirations, as well as the rugs she chose to complement her fall and Halloween decor. If you’re ready to switch out your skeletons and witch cauldrons for a more subtle and sophisticated Falloween decoration, read on.
Ruggable: How are you styling your home differently this fall?
Erika: This year I’m going for a more elegant version of fall and Halloween decor! I want key pieces worth keeping and using for years to come as opposed to the cheap kitschy pumpkin decorations. I also added a fun twist to my fall color scheme with some blues and dusty pinks for a more sophisticated fall look.
How do you make fall and Halloween decor look fresh and sophisticated?
Look for a twist on traditional pumpkins, like maybe glass or velvet pumpkins. Or, go without pumpkins at all and add some dried florals to your home and pieces with rich colors.
You don’t need to add new decor to every room in your home. Look for statement pieces with rich fall colors, and only them in common spaces in your home.
Tell us about your Ruggable rug picks. What do you love about them?
It’s so nice to be able to switch out your Ruggable Rug Covers from season to season because you can really change the vibe of your space and decorate for the various holidays! When the season is over, these Covers can be neatly stored away without taking up much space at all!
For fall and Halloween, I picked:
I love how classic this rug is! It’s such a subtle way to add fall vibes to your home!
This is a great statement rug to add to your home for fall!
I adore the entire Founder’s Farmhouse collection of rugs because they all have that vintage, lived-in look. This one, in particular, has so many colors in it, it’s almost like a neutral! It can pair well with so many different bedding options too, so if, like me, you change your bedding often, this rug will go with everything.
