I'm one of those people who love to change things around for the different seasons. Not just in my wardrobe but in the garden and in the house.
Halloween may not be a fantabulous decorating scheme. I mean black and orange is a difficult color scheme to work with at best. And it's not something I would like for the entire house. But it's fun to take one area and change it to a Halloween theme.
I have neutral furniture and walls, taupe, beige, and black. Sounds boring I know. Without the accessories it is pretty bland. But that's the key, the accessories. I switched out the blue and aqua pillows from summer and substituted in black ones. I already had coral colored pillows and a throw. I removed the shells and fish and added in pumpkins, cute little witches, some fall colored flowers and filled the glass jars with black and orange jelly beans, candy corn, and hard candies.
And there you go: Halloween.

In less than a week, but that's Arizona for you. Seriously a week ago the high was 97 degrees and last night the low was 47 degrees with a high around 70. It will probably get back up to the 90's before October is finished but the cool break was appreciated.
