When it comes to decorating for Halloween, there are tons of temporary ways to add a touch of the macabre to your home: plastic spiders that will need to be packed away on November 1, or black and orange streamers that won't last long beyond then anyway. But if you want something a little less disposable (and a bit more elevated), look no further.
We teamed up with Ety's trend expert, Dayna Isom Johnson, to bring you 10 unique finds that are perfect for October–and beyond. From a doormat you'll be excited to pull out every October 1 to prints and planters that can grace your home the other 364 days of the year, here are her picks just for Apartment Therapy readers.
