Scarily Stylish

DO_chandelier

Here’s one more little dose of Halloween spirit for you: a darkly stunning “chandelier.” It’s purely decorative but casts a dramatic shadow for your Halloween halls (or, really, to make a dramatic statement any time). It was previously priced at $98…now that it’s marked down to $19.99—Let me repeat myself: $19.99—you might as well purchase one to save for your holiday decor next year. Happy Halloween! [insert spooky haunted house noises here.] (-Allie)

Good Gourd

Pumpkin candles

Continuing in the vein of seasonal/transitional decor: fall veggie candles! Cute for now, cute for Thanksgiving supper – and hopefully by the time you’re sick of them, they’ll be burned out anyway. (-Moe)

Orange pumpkin candles, $4.95-14.95; and Green pumpkin/squash/gourd candles, $2.95-5.95; at Crate & Barrel.

Shine A Light

DO-flashlight

A pendant lamp shaped as a flashlight? Yes please. How awesome would a cluster of these be above a breakfast nook  or shining down on a reading nook? I know–TOTALLY awesome! (-Allie)

Animal House

DO-sculptures

OK, the cat’s out of the bag: I heart animal-themed decor. These ceramic sculptures would be great either as bookends or standing alone on a console or entry able. Stylish but not over-the-top kitschy (right?) (-Allie)

Elephant, $19.95 and Gorilla, $14.95 at Z Gallerie.

Fall for Autumn
