CURE Designer Halloween Apartment Tour

Halloween is my all time favorite holiday.  I can’t wait to throw my first big party in honor of my favorite day in my beautiful new apartment.  Halloween is on a Thursday this year, so I was in conflict over if I should throw a party on the Saturday before or after.  Most of the big parties in town were being thrown the Saturday before, so I decided to throw ours on Saturday Nov. 2.  I decided to go with a Day of the Dead theme parry, as the holiday is traditionally celebrated in Mexico on Nov 1 and 2. Perfect.

I began my search for the best Day of the Dead decorations a long time ago.

Al has been working in Afghanistan and was finally scheduled to be home for good in the beginning of October.  As I mentioned yesterday, he did come home, but we were crushed to learn he had to go back. Like, beyond crushed.

So, I decided to cancel the party <insert frowny face>.  After a few days of feeling sorry for myself, I got it together and decided to still decorate my place for “regular” Halloween.  It IS my favorite holiday after all….

So, I present to you, my first holiday decor in the new apartment….starting with my spooky mantel. I wanted to incorporate the Pre-war moldings and mantel into the design and came up with some sort of a haunted mansion vibe???  I’m not exactly sure what it is, but I like it, and hope you do too….

My fireplace is flanked with a pair of black, Georgian wing backs; sometimes my mysterious friends like to relax on them.

After collecting so many skulls for the Day of the Dead party, I didn’t want them to go to waste.  They all managed to wind up on my coffee table.

I hope these images give you some chic, creepy decor inspiration.  If you want the source on a specific item, just leave a comment and I’m happy to reveal.

There is still time to get your vintage, spooky, chic on!
