If you haven’t started decorating for Halloween, now’s the time! Whether you want to fill your home with a classic orange and black holiday motif or opt for a more subdued seasonal style, a Halloween rug is the perfect accent piece to dress up your space.
For a little spooky season inspiration, we’ve rounded up eight boo-tiful Halloween home decor ideas and complementing rugs to get you in the trick-or-treating mood.
1. Mix and Match: Fright Night Orange Coir Doormat and Hudson Stripe Rust Orange Rug
Mixing and matching rugs is a fun and easy way to breathe personality into your space — especially around the holidays. We love how this decorator opted for two entirely different designs (a Halloween doormat and striped rug) that complement each other, thanks to the pops of orange. To round out the bold colors, they added white pumpkins and a jack-o’-lantern candle holder to the mix.
2. Fun and Festive: Pumpkin Orange Rug
Halloween-obsessed? This light and bright living room is proof that a festive fall area rug and a few pieces of home decor are all it takes to transform your space. Look how the miniature pumpkins and hanging bats match the colors of the rug — so cute!
3. Goth Glam: Linear Diamond Black Rug
Ensure your space looks cohesive by committing to a color story similar to the goth-yet-glam setup pictured here. This is an excellent example of transforming your space for the holiday using the area rug you already have, like this versatile black and white geometric rug. Likewise, the gothic Halloween table decor is perfect. Note the sheer lace tablecloth and pumpkins housed in spiderweb-shaped baskets that take this from a regular dining room to a creepy Halloween destination.
4. Color-Coordinated: Bone Dance Black Rug
As much as we love the look of bright and poppy orange Halloween decor, this kitchen makes a strong case for opting for a softer neutral palette. This decorator decided to work with shades of grey, black, and white–including this adorable black and white Halloween rug–which evoke a fun and whimsical aesthetic rather than a scary one.
5. Pumpkin Paradise: Skeleton Trellis Black Rug
Of course, there’s no shame in going absolutely all out for Halloween, evidenced by this decorator’s decision to turn their space into a literal indoor pumpkin patch. The black and white skeleton-patterned Halloween rug perfectly offsets the plethora of orange pumpkins and highlights the star of the show: the skeleton adorning the window seat.
6. Subtly Scary: Sugar Skull Rug
There’s no rule that says your Halloween rug needs to make a huge statement. Notice how the beige base of this runner so perfectly matches the rest of the kitchen and doesn’t throw off its boho-glam aesthetic. For an added dose of Halloween home decor, try something a bit unconventional, like hanging witches hats from the ceiling, as seen here.
7. Layered to Perfection: Pumpkin Coir Doormat and Outdoor Sailmaker Stripe Black Rug
This smile-inducing space is rich with outdoor Halloween decoration ideas. If you love all things playful, take note of the candy corn stakes, stacked pumpkins, and of course, the layered Halloween doormat and outdoor rug. We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again, the latter is a visually compelling way to liven up your outdoor entryway.
8. Wonderfully Witchy: Witchcraft Rug
This space resembles an actual haunted mansion, from the skeleton reading a book to the brooms and witch’s hat above the book-filled fireplace. The Halloween accent rug complements the dark fireplace mantle perfectly and its collage of symbols is a subtle yet fitting addition to this beautifully curated corner.
