The Haunted Halloween Home Tour continues in the living room today! This room has seen a bit of an evolution this year, and not just by adding some Halloween decor.
The typewriter and rat skeletons were from Grandin Road in 2017. I bought an inexpensive Poe book on Amazon and tore pages out to use as decor. This is my favorite Halloween item ever. It is truly spooky!
This vignette was new in 2019! I do love that you see it from the foyer, but that it is a little subtle unless you really look.
I took down some of my usual decor and replaced it with scary photos, a haunted radio and a few other touches. I love to search the house for things we already own to add to the decor. Here I have the boy’s Harry Potter wands. I particularly love having them out because they don’t actually play with them anymore. It’s a little memento of those days.
The haunted radio was from Grandin Road as well. If you can’t tell, I love their holiday decor! I wish it were motion sensitive, rather than a manual turn on. It is battery operated and a really lightweight (cheap) body. But, it works just fine and we’ve all enjoyed it. It’s great for trick or treat night!
Finally, my most treasured pieces of ALL of my Halloween decor… the hologram pictures. These were made years ago at Memento Mori in Magic Kingdom. It was a really neat experience having them made (discontinued) and they have been some of our most used souvenirs. They are also a huge conversation piece!
Here is a short video from last year so you can see all of these fun things in action:
Now, as far as the room changes, here’s the side I rarely show! My settee and coffee table were replaced with a desk early in 2021. When we realized Honey’s office may never reopen, we had to make a more permanent space for him than a folding table in the bedroom. He chose this desk himself (the style is unique for this room). He often has 3 computers going at a time, so it’s not like this will ever be a “styled” space. It’s a practical one though! We added the rug because he hated the old one on his feet. I’ve been meaning to share this on the blog for months but it is usually in disarray. It’s ironic that I finally snapped a pic and am sharing it TWO days AFTER his office reopened! He goes in on a very part time basis so I don’t think we will be changing anything at home in the near term.
Little Elsa splits her days between her bed in my office, her new bed in Honey’s office, the sofa and the porch. It’s a ruff life indeed.
Happy Halloween, y’all!
