The Creepiest Halloween Decor Inspired By Twin Peaks

Two weeks ago, '90s TV buffs went into a frenzy on social media. Film director and artist David Lynch announced he was bringing back his cult-classic show, Twin Peaks. The news coincided with the 25th anniversary of the series; in one episode, a main character promises another that they will see each other in 25 years. To top it off, I had been planning to turn my living room into a haunting scene from the show for weeks. Call it spooky-woodsy destiny.
For my recreational tribute, I moved all my living room furniture into my bedroom and my roommate helped me lay down white contact paper and black duct tape across the floor in the Black Lodge's iconic chevron pattern. With some affordable red panels I bought online and temporary curtain rods, the space took on new life. Next, I added some dishware from the thrift store, silver platters, and bulk candles. The result was a space that actually frightened me when I passed through in the middle of the night to get a glass of water. Mr. Lynch and Dale Cooper, this one's for you.
