Witchify Your Spaces

Hello friends!

I've been thinking a lot about witchy decorating.  Specifically decorating for witches, wiccans, pagans, Halloween enthusiasts, fortune tellers :P

Sounds silly I know but this is something that occupies my mindspace a good amount of time!

I remember when I was 13 and I redecorated my room to my tastes for the first time.  I was inspired by Halloweentown, the Disney Halloween special, and Agatha Cromwell's room.  I don't think it actually looked anything like this, but aren't these pictures a dream?  So Moroccan looking!

Inspiration for what "witchy" decor is has changed.  I do love the forest and the woodsy theme I've discovered through so many beautiful blogs and tumblrs.  The castle schools found in the Worst Witch and Harry Potter:

The Victorian charm of the Owen's house in Practical Magic:

I've read blogs and listened to podcasts that say thrift stores and home decorating stores are the best places to look around Halloween especially!

But lately I've discovered a Dutch film by Walt Disney called "Fuchsia the Mini-Witch".

The school house is a dream!  Posters of runes on the walls, sweet woodsy decor!

The wizard's house is extra cute, patchwork, wood, bookshelves.  Love his starry cloak!

I like this magical look the best ;)

I try to add in a bit of everything in my own space, candles, Moroccan and Eastern influences, flowers and plants, different coloured furniture, lace, Victorian influences, with just a dash of Stevie Nicks!

Hope everyone is having a lovely day!
