The Night Circus

Le Rêveur Parle: An Interview with Erin Morgenstern by J.L. Schnabel

Upon first reading The Night Circus, the void in your heart that you were previously unaware of is filled. From its opening lines, you are stolen away and captivated by its lyrical story and magical characters, your life forever enriched by your experience with it. You find yourself unconsciously nodding to any stranger in the street […]

Lupercalia 2017 at Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab + A Giveaway!

Soooo…perhaps you recall that last month we shared our opinion that sweets for the sweet should be an everyday practice, as opposed to a dreary once a year tradition, confined to one disappointing day in mid-February? We urged you to treat yourself to indulgent luxuries because you are your own best sweetheart and why should you wait until a commercially […]

Lover's Eye Miniature

The Forbidden Desire of “Lover’s Eyes”

Few things in life are as intimate as eyes, whether we’re talking about symbolic gateways to the soul or the visceral suckerpunch of lingering gazes across a crowded room. That so much emotion can be held in such a small physical space inspired a short-lived jewelry trend we have come to know as Lover’s Eyes. […]

Amy Earles, Entrement

Unfolding A Daydream: The Art Of Amy Earles

One might experience a peculiar frisson of nostalgia while gazing at the wistful, winsome subjects of  artist Amy Earle’s earlier works. Reminiscent of  the illustrated plates in a mysterious storybook, dusty and hidden far back in grandmother’s closet and tucked the soft folds of a moth-eaten antique quilt; a discovery stumbled upon one rainy afternoon while the […]

Morbid Anatomy Museum bulding

Remembering the Morbid Anatomy Museum

  There’s a Morbid Anatomy-shaped hole in our hearts. Last year, on December 18th, the Morbid Anatomy Museum first announced that they would be closing their doors. Shortly thereafter the museum was beautifully eulogized by Evan Michelson. Now we here at Haute Macabre would like to raise a glass in tribute to a singular institution that was dear to […]

Skeleton Rocking Chair no cushion

The Skeleton Rocker: A Cozy Reminder of Our Mortality

Until this moment I had no idea that my house has been desperately missing a skeleton rocking chair. Modeled after a mid 19th century Russian chair, these beautiful, elaborately hand-carved rockers were made in the US in the 20th century, most likely during the 1930s. With an estimated auction value of $2,500 to $3,5oo, this isn’t the most […]

Post Mortem: January 2017

January 2017 has been a difficult month for many of us, especially here in the USA.  It has veered between extremes of sadness and fear at the wave of hatred enveloping parts of our country, and determination and pride as we watch those around us choose to rise up.  This month we have cried and […]
