The Twisted Hunt: Spectres, known as the hardest hunt on the grid, is still going strong (March 5-April 5, 2015). Today, I present Dreamscapes Art Gallery Ghost collection including the main gifts (bench & art work) and six mini hunt gifts (tailor, lantern, stool, candle plate, twig vase & rug). The original art work by designer and owner of Dreamscapes, Carlotta Ceawlin, features a ghostly image of a women walking through the fog laden woods. All pieces in the ghost collection are charcoal blue and grey, a twist on the typical spring palette. The mid-century modern Ghost Bench drawers open and close. Surprises abound in this set with ghosts appearing in the mannequin, lantern, under rugs and on the painting. I paired the hunt gifts with Dreamscapes’ Oliver Hutch and Serenity Chair White. Good luck and happy hunting!
