A view into the living room. Aren't those old, exposed beams just the best? I'm still in love with them.
During a remodel of my 18th century home several years ago, the wall was knocked out between the living room and kitchen, creating sort of a great room. Because of that, I kept the Halloween decor consist in both rooms. I went with the more charming and fun version of Halloween, instead of going the creepy and scary route, as I did in other parts of the house. The main reason is that this is our most public space. The casual visitor may not even see the rest of the house, so I wanted to keep it light and try not to scare away playdates or the UPS guy.
The great room decor is witchy, vintage-feeling, and fun. Although I love the creepy feel in my other rooms, I love this more light-hearted side of Halloween as well.
With a view into my kitchen, tattered and worn, spider-filled cheese cloth can be see separating the two rooms. I thought this cloth would have to be replaced every year, but I was wrong. It's only become more tattered and Halloween-appropriate every year.
From here, you can catch a peek into my "haunted" dining room.
Hope you have enjoyed this little tour through my witchy great room! Please visit the rest of my Halloween House Tour, which includes my dining room, family room, and parlor. Happy haunting!
