Halloween Apartment Tour 2022

Hi friends, welcome back and come on in! Iโ€™m so excited to be sharing my Halloween decor with you all today! This post pairs well with your favorite fall beverage, a fall candle, and a spooky song ๐Ÿ™‚ I like to get a head start on spooky season and decorate early September because I love how cozy and colorful it makes our apartment feel. I got a few new decorations this year and I couldnโ€™t wait to work my magic and make our space festive.

Iโ€™ll start the tour in my favorite spot to decorate, our entry table. I changed it up a little this year, but nothing here is new.

I have flameless candles on timers inside all the pumpkins and lanterns and I love when they all light up at night. Itโ€™s so cozy!

Iโ€™m glad we have windowsills in the living room I can decorate. I found this painting my grandpa painted and I thought it was perfect for fall!

This pumpkin is new this year and I couldnโ€™t wait to put it out. Itโ€™s from Pottery Barn and I patiently waited for it to go on sale and finally bought it right after last Halloween. Itโ€™s so pretty at night twinkling.

Jonโ€™s mom got us this glass pumpkin and itโ€™s the perfect bit of color on our tv stand. I found this fall fireplace on Youtube and itโ€™s so relaxing!

My mom gave me this little ghost family and theyโ€™re a nice addition to my windowsill.

I say this every year, but this is my favorite display yet.

In my kitchen window I changed it up this year and filled my vase with candy corn. Luckily it hasnโ€™t been too hot so they havenโ€™t melted to the jar. This BOO sign is one of my favorite decorations, itโ€™s so fun and festive. As you can tell Iโ€™m not a fan of skeletons or scary things, my vibe is more cute and cozy.

I purposely didnโ€™t fill my candy bowls with peanut M & Ms this year, but those and snickers are my Halloween candy of choice. Iโ€™m not a big fan of candy corn so thatโ€™s pretty safe to leave out around here.

Everything tastes better on spooky dishware and mugs.

If youโ€™re curious how we store all this stuff, especially the pumpkins, I remembered to take a picture of our front closet before I took the pumpkins down. Our apartment has three full closets and a linen closet so I put all my pumpkins up in our hall closet, some things go in the cabinet above the fridge, and then anything extra in the linen closet. Our apartment building doesnโ€™t have any storage in the basement, so we have to run a tight ship.

Hope you enjoyed this Halloween apartment tour, thanks for stopping by ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you! It makes me so happy you were looking forward to this! In a few Halloweens hopefully there will be a house to decorate and basement to store things in.

      1. You are very welcome! ๐Ÿ™‚ I remember how excited you were last year and you mentioning Halloween last week brought that to mind again. So, its good to see your decorations up! ๐Ÿ™‚
        Haha, spookily, as I was looking at the glass pumpkin I wondered where on earth you stored everything and you answered that in almost the next para. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      2. Yes I get very excited to put out all my decorations ๐Ÿ™‚ I read your mind! The pumpkins are quite hard to store because I can’t fold them up and stick them under the bed. The Christmas tree and golf clubs are worse, but besides that we really only have clothes and suitcases.

      3. Being this well organised will stand you in good stead for when/if you move to a house because, no matter what, the amount of ‘stuff’ always expands to the size of the space available to fit it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      4. That’s very true! We visited Jon’s sister and she lives by herself but seemed to have double the stuff because she has the space for it. We’ve been eying the two bedrooms in our building and crossing our fingers the prices decrease so we can snag one.

  1. My favorite item is the glass pumpkin on the lower level of the entry display, but the little polka-dot ones caught my eye too. Who in the world buys polka-dot pumpkins? Lyssy in the City, of course! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the festive tour.

    1. That is another Pottery Barn pumpkin I love. I got the polka dot pumpkins back when I still lived at home with my parents, so I put a few in my bedroom and then brought the rest to work for my desk. I must’ve really liked them to bring them all the way to NYC, but I’m pretty sure they were like $5 at target for 10 so I just scatter them around.

  2. So fun, Lyssy, I love your Halloween decor! The little autumn painting by your grandfather is a treasure, and I love the “Boo Spider” sign. I will be posting my fall/halloween decor soon too,

    1. Thank you! The painting is a treasure, and I love that it’s small. He also painted the lighthouse in our kitchen. The Boo Spider sign we got on our fall trip to Vermont, so seeing it always reminds me of that wonderful trip ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait to see your decor soon!

  3. Do you store the items in that suitcase? I don’t know how you do it, my basement is stuffed. By the way, are the wicked witch of the east shoes candle holders? Your apartment is so lovely.

    1. We store our hiking bags and other bags in our suitcases. We use them a lot so need to have easy access. I moved with a few boxes and suitcases and Jon’s pretty minimalist, so we had a good starting point. They are candle holders ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you!!

    1. Thank you!! I have a few more of his paintings, but haven’t gotten around to framing any besides the lighthouse in our kitchen of the famous lighthouse in Portland, Maine.

    1. Thank you!! So glad it gives off that vibe ๐Ÿ™‚ One day you guys can do your own Halloween tour!

  4. You are so much in the spirit of Halloween, it’s something I regret in France, there is not like in Canada this collective spirit around Halloween.

    1. I would miss the Halloween spirit too if I lived somewhere they didn’t celebrate it. I’m guessing they aren’t obsessed with pumpkin everything over there either haha.

    1. Thank you! All that’s left to do is start the Halloween movies ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad this got you in the spirit!

    1. I am not good at decorating for non-holiday times, so it always feels so empty without my holiday decor. Glad this has inspired you ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Haha I was actually wondering where you stored everything, since I know apartments in NYC are usually pretty small. Looks super cozy and Halloweeny!

    1. I always laugh when influencers are like “I keep getting this question” but last year I really did get asked how I store all this, so I remembered to take a picture. It is very cozy and Halloweeny!

    1. Thank you! I’m definitely looking forward to have a basement to store all this stuff and expand my collection, but until then we make do ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy October!

  6. Hi! I popped over here from Mix and Match Mama after I saw your comment on her fall tour…”one bedroom NYC apartment” intrigued me. ๐Ÿ™‚ Your apartment is gorgeous, such beautiful views! Awesome fall/Halloween tour!

    1. Hi Melanie! Thank you so much, that is so kind of you to say ๐Ÿฅฐ so glad you enjoyed my fall tour!

  7. Aw lovely – you’d have a field day on our house as we have 3 lounges, a dining room, a huge kitchen, 6 bedrooms, 4 baths and a massive garden. We never do anything with it and you’d make it look amazinggggggg ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. My dream!!! I would have such a fabulous time spookifying your house for Halloween and dream of having all that space ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ

      1. Hehe I’d love that ๐Ÿ™‚ I think real estate in the middle of the English countryside is probably like a billionth of the price as central NYC haha!

      2. Hahha true ๐Ÿ˜‚ Iโ€™m guessing in a few years we will be out of the city and into a house but who knows. Iโ€™d love to decorate a front porch one day.

    1. We got very creative with our storage! We’re actually moving next week to a 2-bedroom so I’m excited to have a whole closet for my decor ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the Boo sign too, we got that on a trip in Vermont so it always brings back good memories.

    1. Thank you!! We only have decorations, kitchen supplies, and clothes in our apartment ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Imagine all the decorations I can fit in a house and basemen๐Ÿคฉ upstate is beautiful!
