A Haute Halloween

Yesterday afternoon, I had the pleasure of visiting my friend Robin's wonderful estate, the Humbolt Mansion, here in Springfield. Robin is the creator and owner of Robin's Vintage Suitcase, the Vintage Veranda Tea Room, and Ms. Gilmore's, a wonderful wedding venue. Robin and Rick's amazing 100+ year old home is a landmark here, and they are owners and caretakers of one of the most amazing homes and properties in the area. Robin's touch is evident at this fun time of the year, as she mixes antiques and one-of-a-kind collectibles with items she currently sells in her shop. These are just a few photos of her home impeccably dressed for a "Haute Halloween".




















































 This is just the first post of wonderful Halloween inspiration.
I'll be sharing more photos soon.

Oh my goodness!... what a beautiful mansion Debra!... how lucky you are to be friends and be able to visit... and I really LOVE that they decorate so fun for Halloween... honestly, I am getting darn sick and tired of hearing some people say how evil Halloween is... no one is making them celebrate it... but they need to just keep quiet and let the rest of it enjoy it as the fun, innocent holiday it is... (think Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown here)... okay, I will get off my soapbox now!... I don't see one evil thing about it, or these darling decorations... infact, I am starting to put out my vintage Halloween, and newer Halloween today... and Tessy is getting excited to wear her pumpkin costume again!... can't wait to join in on your Halloween Friday parties... thanks for sharing all of this!... really got me in the "spirit" of things!... hee hee hee!... xoxo Julie Marie

What a divine living space. I absolutely love that huge pumpkin pillow and must have one now. Love the high contrast of the black and white color scheme...so striking!

Heidi@OneCreativeMommy.com said...

What a fun Halloween home you have. My weekly linky party--One Creative Weekend--has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit "One Creative Weekend" on OneCreativeMommy.com (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.

Sarah said...

What a fun friend. Her home is charming and all the Halloween decorations are just icing on the cake.
