Halloween interior design

Having spooky interiors doesn’t just have to be something for the Halloween season. Some establishments like to give an eerie feel to their interior design all throughout the year.

We’d like to wish our clients, candidates and website visitors a Happy Halloween by giving a list of the top most spooky interiors we could find on the internet today.

1.) Sedlec Ossuary, Czech Republic

Sedlec Ossuary, Czech Republic

Sedlec Ossuary in Czech Republic is a small Roman Catholic Chapel like no other. It houses over 40,000 bones, arranged as part of its decor.

2.) Hotel Burchianti, Italy

Hotel Burchianti Italy

Hotel Burchianti in Florence is said to be full of ghosts. Guests claim they have seen children skipping down the hallways, a maid doing her cleaning rounds and even a woman knitting in her chair. This room, with it’s classical civilisation wall art, panelled walls and old style hat stand certainly does wonders to keep the spooky atmosphere alive.

3.) Beetle House, New York

Beetle House New York

Beetle house in New York does horror on purpose. Inspired by Tim Burton’s movies, this whimsical, goth hangout serves American fare & cocktails. It’s interior design draws on many elements from the popular 80’s film including, the Beetlejuice gravestone and striped wallpaper like the character’s clothing.

4.) Le Pavillon, New Orleans

Le Pavillon, New Orleans

With a reported ghost on each floor, the luxurious Le Pavillon is situated in the Central Business District in New Orleans. You can see why the ghosts want to stick around – the rooms are beautifully laid out with ornate Victorian furnishings and elaborate decor. This traditional setting adds to the eerie feel of the hotel and compliments its reputation as one of the most haunted hotels in the city.

5.) Dover Castle, England

Dover Castle, England

The interior of the King’s Chamber in the Great Tower of Dover Castle is staged to look as it would have during the reign of Henry II (1154-89). It shows a replica bed, chair and furnishings. Visitors to Dover castle have reported seeing the ‘lower half of a man’ walking through the doorway of the King’s bedchamber. Ghost sightings aside, the furnishings and bright colours are an interesting mix for this medieval chamber and almost emulates a child’s toyroom – but with the children no where to be found. Spooky!
