It’s all about the colours

You can give an ordinary living room a dramatic twist by changing the colour palettes and textile materials. Pick darker tones for a warm, atmospheric effect and get materials that have a stunning visual texture. With this decor, your space looks like an inviting and cosy living room great for reading, relaxing and spending time with your family during the day time. But, as the night falls, the same room takes on a darker and more mysterious transformation. 

The devil’s in the details

It’s the little things that tie the mysterious and spooky vibe of your room together. You can pick a vase with a smooth surface and decorate it with eerie designs. If you use a whiteboard marker, you can wipe off the markings later.

Tone it down with a soft touch

Things getting too spooky? Give your living rooms a more soothing touch with the help of our vibrant SMYCKA artificial flowers. The romantic and colourful flowers contrast with the dramatic design of the vases and blend beautifully with the artsy aesthetic of your room.

Let the light show you the way

Our LED lighting completes the dramatic effect of the living room by lending a warm and cosy ambience. But if you want to increase the enigmatic look of the space, drape your lights with some fabrics. You can pick colours and patterns that blend with the rest of the room. Just one warning though - don’t let the lamp get too hot! 

A bit of theatricality never hurt anyone

Take your decor to the next level and chill your drinks (and impress your guests) with a spooky hand-shaped ice cube. It’s easy to make - just fill a clean glove with water and freeze it! Extraordinary touches such as these complete the transformation of your ordinary living room into a dramatic dinner setting that leaves everyone in awe.

“During the daytime, or when the festivities are over, it’s easy to change back to your normal living room during the day.”
