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!
The witches have gathered, the ghosts are flying, and the candy bowls have been filled, the Ravenshire Halloween Village is open for trick or treat. Stop by and enjoy six decorated rooms in different autumnal styles from rustic, to elegant, to country; starting tomorrow October 10 through Monday, October 13, 2014. I kept everything charming and inviting, nothing too scary, great for families and friends. Be inspired by some of my favorite designers; for highlights of each room visit this weeks’ past posts.
As you walk up the grassy path, Thaino Designs Dont Look Up! ghosts are making their way through the woods. Bright and cheery Sway’s Boo Pumpkins line the main courtyard area with Roawenwood fountain, Thaino flower cauldron, Aphrodite Shop squirrels (Totally Nutz for you! & My babies nest @ The Seasons Story), and Park Place friendly flying Casper Ghostie Set (@ Mieville Halloween Village). Near the courtyard is Sway’s Wishing Well (@ Mystic Realms Fair) and Finishing Touches Pumpkin Picker’s Wheelbarrow (subscriber gift).
Leading to the last house are two costumed skeletons and The Mustard Seed Fall Decor (60L special this weekend). The very last house in the village is dedicated to the upcoming spooky Halloween season with a seance theme room from Finishing Touches Twilight collection complete with charred wood fireplace, sheet draped table and chair, and Victorian royal purple living room decor (Spellbound collection, past Twisted gift) transformed into a waiting area. Hope my village motives you. Let’s Get Decorating!
Sneak peek #3 of the Roawenwood Ravenshire Halloween Village (grande shoppes) this time reflects rustic autumn elegance displayed in several Finishing Touches collections in the bedroom, the living room, and the library. Once again each shop window is adorned with beautiful harvest wreaths from Finishing Touches, and fanciful holiday decor from Park Place and Thaino Designs. Enter into the grande shop from the Halloween Village courtyard. The center space contains the comfortable inviting Buckskin Living Room with suede sofas, armchairs and wood detailing. Included in the set is a beautiful rug, potted plants, clock, table and lamps. Simple elegant design requires easy accessories with Sway’s Fall Jar with Acorns and Candle. To the right of the connecting rooms is the wood-paneled Executive Privilege library in warm rich brown tones. The set contains a burgundy rug, working library cabinets and shelves, an hourglass table, desk & chair, (and a lounge area). On the opposite end of the three room cottage is the gorgeous Autumn Embrace bedroom, complete with ivy canopy bed (6 color variations), and twig & wood table/ chair accents. In every window there is a special holiday decoration; among them is the unique and fascinating Park Place Miniature Haunted House with flying ghosts (available at Mieville Halloween Village). Each door is guarded by charming Thaino Designs Halloween pumpkins, flower beds, wagon wheel hay bale, ring of ghosts, and bench. Look forward to another sneak peek tomorrow and Let’s Get Decorating!
