A Haunted Halloween {Stair Parlor}

One of my favorite rooms to decorate seasonally is the stair parlor, the room at the base of the stairs. The stair parlor is a room that everyone passes through and houses my favorite antique find, a clock table set on a draftsman table base.

I used the deer antler arrangement by Dunn & Sonnier and added Halloween-inspired touches to it. I love the dark greenish-black leaves on the white aspen branches.

A glittered hand, a cast iron spider, and wasp nests fill the base of the arrangement. A glittered chain and black crows complete the haunted vignette.

On the table, I love to use stacked decorating books. The crowned skull, skull & crossbones votive, spooky hologram all increase the spooktacular fun.

I adore vintage bottles and magnifying glasses. I incorporate them in my decor seasonally, and they work so well during this spooky season.

In the niches, I filled the apothecary jars with skulls along with a glittered hand and chain.
