This witch hat pictured below was designed by me. I just love it! 

My style of decorating borders on mysterious,

slightly eerie with a dash of mysticism,

and just the right amount of cutesy mixed in so that it doesn’t feel ghastly and frightening.

My Halloween style is influenced by a quite a bit more than what is available on store shelves.
Much of my inspiration comes from historical architectural design styles.

online, editorial columns, and op-eds we see fabulous French design with
a heavy focus on French Country.

One particular architectural style that receives little attention is French Gothic and Victorian.
The oversight probably has more to do with what the current trends are, though.

Did you know the term Gothic originated as an insult? Yep.
Be that as it may, Notre Dame Cathedral is the most prolific work of French Gothic Architecture.
It’s stunning!

Who isn’t mesmerized by the details and craftsmanship?
I would like to see this style come back onto the design scene.

I could write a series blog post on how amazing French Gothic architecture is.

I might consider doing just that considering I still have every single paper I wrote for my classes.
I’m not sure how well received this information might be.

 I  have a few sources that serve to creatively inspire and influence
my Halloween decorating style.

Shows like Penny Dreadful,
The Originals,
and Salem
are just a few period shows that I enjoy.

I have always had a peculiar fascination with period dress
and set design used in these types of shows and movies.

I do love the dark moodier design styles.

Halloween gives me just the reason to bring some of that into my home and have fun with it.

Cool Halloween Ideas for an elegant look that is Country Halloween Decor but French Country too! | Reinvented Collection Buying massed produced Halloween decor isn’t something I do very often,
but there are a few things that will tug at my heart strings and speak to me.

I buy what speaks to me…. for instance the black crows!
Those little guys have been and will continue to be a favorite amongst my Halloween decor.
They are creepy-cute.
Decorating with crows Halloween Ideas That Work For Gothic Halloween Ideas too!

The only thing I did was laid a bed of moss, a few Baby Boo pumpkins,
filled a couple of small white cream dishes with dried flowers,
popped in a couple of crows and a few candles.

Halloween must have candles.
I think that might even be a decorating rule.

This took all of 10-15 minutes to put together.
