Kourt may be the queen of Halloween, but, clearly, scary-good decorating runs in the family.
This year, Kim teamed up with Mindy Weiss to transform her home into a minimalist house of haunts, complete with skull archways, mummies, and more.
Below, take a look at all of Kim’s Halloween decorations for 2023 (and don’t forget to bookmark this for some 2024 Halloween inspo).
According to Andrew Haupt from Mindy’s team, “Kim wanted the space to feel spooky and fun for the kids, but wanted the decor to feel in line with the chic monochromatic feel of their house, which is how we landed on mummies and skeletons!”
Kim pulled her skull-adorned trees out of storage and re-used them. It’s no small feat either. A crane had to come in and assemble each tree, piece by piece. Fun fact: the trees were inspired by a work of art from Burning Man in 1999.
The final product? Worth it.
Around the trees, plaster hands were planted to look like they’re crawling out from the grave. Last year, Kim and her kids got plaster moldings of their hands, so some of the ones popping up from the dirt actually belong to them.
Kim wanted the archway in her foyer to mimic the one she has around her front door. They went with a skeleton archway. This meant securing each segment of the arch to the wall, making sure it was sturdy enough to stay put, but not so much that it would never come off.
Inside is where things start to get a little spooky. Guiding you down the hallway are hooded, Grim Reaper-like figures and wrapped-up mummies. Both were actually used last Halloween, with the Grim Reapers sitting outside. Kim decided to bring them in to sit alongside the mummies, which certainly makes for interesting middle-of-the-night bathroom trips.
To bring it all together, Kim wanted to add swaths of fabric to the ceiling. The neutral color palette blends into her home seamlessly … and makes you even more aware of the creatures eyeing you down the hall.
