NOT TIKI > > >

I am trying to downsize a few things at my place as my Mom is going to come live with me. She is 93 and had a couple of bad falls recently so she finally gave up and has sold her home. That changed some plans I had as I was going to turn most of my garage into a British pub/pool room, but have had to give up that idea. I still have so much to do in VampTiki lounge but some of that is on hold. I soon will have my San Fran Trader Vic Marquesan Tiki secured in my dining room and another huge map hung, so when that occurs, I will be back with pictures.

In my head, I am planning my large master closet as the Vampire Vault, so need ideas. I have a crystal chandelier I can eventually get installed and use gothic shades on the bulbs. I do not have the energy or $$ to get the room painted so will mostly use lighting to add the ambiance. This is the size of a very small bedroom and is located off the end of my Out-Of-Africa bathroom. The main purpose of this room is storage of my large collection of dishes and also as a craft room. I have 3 large stands full of dishes and on one side of the room is my table where I will do crafts (mostly sewing). I want drapes to hang in front of my dish shelves and possibly all around the room to even hide my craft table. I think a black, red or purple lace would be good, so still trying to figure that out...any suggestions? I can run shelving around the top of the room to store decor so was thinking about wooden boxes and such, but not sure? I love all the gothic items on

Any Vampire decor ideas would be greatly appreciated. I can provide before pictures if that will help.

Vamp, what about a hinged upright coffin? Put shelves in it for storage and the door hides everything.

Great idea....thanks. I looked at the room some more and think I can put some gargoyles up in the corners.

I like creepy stuff as much as tiki so I've got a few suggestions on web sites. For pictures www.hauntedportraits.com has creepy lenticulars. The Halloween Store in Burbank has plenty of vampire merchandise www.halloweentownstore.com For kitschy stuff the LA County Coroner has a gift shop called Skeletons in the Closet. lacoroner.com etsy.com is another good place to look.

Thanks for the links...that coroner one is pretty funny.

I have some delightfully eerie music and would love it if you open the french doors and the music queued up.

Halloween season needs to start next week if they are going to get Christmas up by the middle of September. Keep your eyes open for a Spirit store in your neighborhood real soon

Sidebar Rant - They keep putting up Christmas earlier and earlier every year. I suspect they have moved up a year and are actually doing displays this year for Christmas 2013

I will be inheriting some black light bulbs so can really get some creepiness going on in there eventually. This is going to take smore work than I thought, but got some great ideas...thanks everyone.

THE JUNGLE ROOM
While I am gone to Oasis, my handyman is going to install a large jungle print area rug in my living room and get all my theater chairs set up. I have a few silk plants around and leopard print throws on the furniture. Should have this room done by September. Pictures to follow.

BALI HAI DINING ROOM
Also while I am gone, the 10 foot Marquesan is getting installed in the corner of my dining room. I had a huge map framed at Aaron Bros but it was too big to fit in my car, so a friend is going to help me get that at the end of August and then just some other minor arrangements and hanging of some maps in there and it should be done by September too. Pictures to follow.

Thank goodness for my handyman as I need my home to be presentable for our Sacramento Crawl....doubt I will have my bedroom finished...but will just close the doors...se la vi.

LA LA LAUNDRY ROOM
Here is the Laundry Room, right across for the Equestrian Powder Room. If you're going to have to be tortured doing laundry, might as well do it in a well appointed comfortable space.
