When shopping for your decorations, keep in mind lighting. When used right, lighting should guide the eye. Lighting is meant to take the eye away from the less important of a home’s layout and towards what you want them to see. The same can be said for color. Remember, darker colors can help keep things in the foreground. In the meantime, light colors naturally attract one’s attention. For these reasons, use of lighting and color placement maintains a strong place in our Halloween décor priority list.
