A lovely place to rest your bones...2

Sofas, chaises, and benches. I look to Pinterest again for inspiration pieces to spring ideas on how to decorate my home. This little beauty would look lovely in an entryway or at the foot of a bed. The crafty thriftster would be able to make something similar from a coffee table, some padding, a pretty fabric and some paint.

I love the look of leather. A distressed brown leather fits just as well black in a spooky home.

In the bedroom I imagine this chaise.

I would love a tufted leather sofa. I bet this set cost more than my car.

Another bedroom chaise. Sexy.

This is a beautiful room, but what catches my eye is the velvet sofa on the left. Velvet is a sexy seductive fabric that would fit well in my home.

I totally hate the flower pillows on the couch, but I like the couch.

Every once in awhile, I will see a vintage sofa set in a garage sale or antiques store. They always want astronomical prices for the pieces, even though most need a lot of work. This one appears to be a reproduction and the fabric is hideous, but it does have vast potential.

A lovely place to rest your bones...

The internet again has provided me with inspiration for seating. Once again Pinterest has shown me lovelies I would have never otherwise seen. This post is going to focus on various chairs that range from glamorous to torturous. Regardless they should fit well in most spooky rooms. Spooky, yes. Comfortable, I imagine not.

This would be lovely in a room where there isn't much color.

This looks incredibly comfy.

I imagine this in a kitchen or on the patio.

I see chairs similar to this at thrifts and yard sales. It could easily be recovered in a suitable fabric and painted or stained dark to match any dark room.

This dark beauty calls to me.

This looks like the chair I would imagine Malificent to sit upon in the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale.

Looks like a chair you would find on the wall of the Night's Watch.

This is a classic piece, that you may find at a yard sale or thrift in those horrible granny fabrics that beg for you to recover.

This is another chair that I see often at thrift stores that perhaps belonged to a long replaced dining set. This chair could very easily be painted and reupholstered to fit your home.

Interesting chair that would fit well in a room with a Ottoman or Moor feel.

Such a beauty. I can imagine the Red Queen taunting Alice from such a chair.

I am not a fan of the wood stain, but this chair is beautiful in it's simplicity. I would probably paint the wood a sleek red enamel and leave the leather seat as is.

Oh my! I would love these chairs to sit at my kitchen table!

This would be lovely in my bedroom, but I would have to be careful to not go overboard with the animal prints.

The beautiful attraction of this chair is the skull print and it's creamy coloring of the fabric. Nicely done.

Dusting off the cobwebs...

Oh poor neglected blog, I have been bad in maintaining you. As the weather begins to cool and Halloween goodies start to pop back up in the stores, I am reminded of your existence. Forgive me. To get back into this blogging thing, I shall share some of my favorite Dark Decor Inspiration Pins I have pinned on Pinterest. Some you may have seen before, some may be new. But they are all inspirations for the souls who like to stay spooky all year round. This room has so many elements I love. The grey fireplace, the zebra rug, the striped wallpaper, as well as the sheer curtains.

I love the sleekness of this very sexy bathroom. The glossy black molding stands out against the red wallpaper.

What is there to not love about this room?

I really like the adding of color to the backboards of the bookcases.

I'm not crazy about the floral aspects of this room, but I love the glossy furniture and the use of fur.

More animal prints! See a theme with me?

Do you have a Pin of a room that inspires you on Pinterest? Or have you stumbled upon a dark jewel somewhere on the internet? Please share.
