We only have a few days left for Halloween! You can get into the spirit this year, no matter what your plans are or how much space you have. With a little creativity, you can decorate even the smallest of living spaces. In this article, we will be discussing how to get the most out of a small space this holiday season. 

Holiday Lighting 


All amazing décor starts with great lighting. What good are your fabulous decorations if no one gets to see them? Many interior designers understand that adding the correct lighting to a small room can actually make it look bigger. By spreading the correct lighting around the room, you can create the optical illusion of a larger space. Some lighting tips may include:

  1. Using a lot of light 
  2. Placing the lights in corners 
  3. Bounce light off mirrors 
  4. Place lights high

Skulls are the ultimate Halloween decorations. A decent-sized skull can be used as a great centerpiece on a table, in a candy dish, or as a candle holder. Use a skull as a seasonal paperweight or planter. In many cultures, skulls represent death, mortality, and protection. Skulls have been used a lot in history to symbolize rebellion and danger which makes them the perfect Halloween decoration to add to your home.
