There are two kinds of people in the world: the ones who like to dress up on Halloween and the ones who like to dress up their homes. We at Lonny HQ naturally fall into the latter category. While many choose to go H.A.M. on cheesy pumpkin lights and those obnoxious motion-sensor ghosts, we generally like to keep things classy. So this year, we're transforming our houses into spooky, apothecary-inspired dens, complete with creepy skulls, antiqued glass vessels, and specimens straight out of a science lab. Care to join us? Here's what you'll need.
Anything trapped behind a glass vessel instantly becomes steeped in mystery.
Bats, ravens, and mice are classic fright-night all-stars.
Bonus points for melting tapers that drip down to the tabletop.
Because there's nothing scarier than a disembodied head (and this Mozart is particularly intense).
For mixing potions and other ghoulish concoctions.
The ultimate sign of danger ahead.
The more lifelike, the better.
Mercury glass lends an aged look that's right at home in a moody laboratory.
To further your brainy studies.
Because bugs give everyone the heebie-jeebies.
For a little mood lighting.
To size up the spooky surroundings.
