My friend Amanda likes Halloween more than Christmas and she decorates everything. She inspires me every year with her spooky vignettes.

Amanda has assembled a fantastic collection of black and white pieces that go together to make up a cohesive look that is both whimsical and sophisticated (well…sophisticated for Halloween). She has an eye for the spook, and has made even seemingly un-spooky things a little scary.

One quick idea Amanda shared is framing a macabre book title, or just a shriek with a bug. The cracked glass makes a perfect pairing.hw-2

Two ravens and a colony of bats have found a home in one corner of the living room. Sort of like a partridge in a pear tree. No need to mar the walls, just use a removable tape.

Are you feeling a little Kafka-ish? I know I am. He didn’t write The Metamorphosis to be a spooky book, but this chapter heading sure looks like it.

Halloween Decorating

Here are a few quick changes you can make.

* Black throw pillows-I have some in my bedroom. I just move them to the family room.

* A black throw (to go with the pillows). Yep, I’ve got one of those too.

* A candelabra with drippy candles

* Scary mantle photo, kind of like the one at Disney’s Haunted Mansion. Put it in a frame and voila.

* Haunted house pic with the words “home sweet home”

Are you feeling a little Poe-ish, I know I am! Soooo many ravens.
