Happy Halloween!

In her post earlier this month, Kara Lashley showed us all the right ways to add designer touches of the macabre to your interiors, highlighting tasteful ways to dress the home for Halloween.

With the carefully edited mix of pumpkins, tree ornaments and sparkly lights, these decorations pull double-duty for Halloween and Christmas.
