Home Decor - On Sale Now

From ghoulish haunted houses and eerie graveyards to skeleton brides, vampires, witches and zombies, this month kicks off with our Gothic Halloween Design Challenge. Inspired by all kinds of creepy creatures and places, the Gothic genre is a dark one but is also one of the trendiest Halloween styles, especially for our European markets.


Overview

We invite you to have a spirited time and showcase your spookiest Halloween patterns for one of our favorite nights of the year!
