6 Non-Cheesy Halloween Home Finds

No lame plastic skeletons here.

When it comes to home design, there’s a right way and a wrong way to get in on holiday-themed accents. Here’s what not to do: stringy cotton cobwebs and cheap orange plastic pumpkins. Instead? Try sophisticated, glam finds in gold and black with just a subtle hint of creepy edge. Look for golden skull objects slithery snake motifs, or an eerie touch of macabre. Best part: These finds will last you long past November 1.
