What Houzz contributors are saying:
Decorating for Halloween can be subtle: orange accents often do the trick. And you can take a seasonal approach. Perhaps this zebra-patterned rug, tray and twigs (in the background) are brought out each fall. Winter, spring and summer may yield completely different runners/rugs, console accessories and florals — and none of it has to be exhorbitantly expensive!
Though I've never seen a orange-and-white zebra in the wild, its look has found its rightful place in home decor. Not only does this idea expand our color creativity, it is an animal-friendly option, too. Clever. More: Your Guide to HidesDecorating With ZebraCrocodile Rocks20 Leopard-Print Finds
Mirror. Zinging back and forth through the house before leaving for the day will only be increased if there's not a mirror next to the doorway. I'd suggest keeping it small and above the shoulders, as a larger one may contribute to second guesses and outfit changes.

Faux hides. If you're like me and love the look of hide but just don't want it in your home, faux is the way to go! Jonathan Adler has a great wool option that will add a funky twist to your space while still being kind to our beloved bovine.
Building on the console table + mirror + decorative items formula, don't be afraid to play around with the symmetry, shapes, and textures. What a striking combination of chunky console, mirrored angled stool, flirty curvilinear mirror, and zebra shaped rug this is. Gray and white, accented by orange in the tray and rug, make for a glamorous mix.
