Some people love Halloween and some people ARE Halloween. If you're not really sure what that means (okay, I'm not either), check out these seven decked out Halloween home interiors whose devilish decorators are Halloweening like it's an Olympic sport.

Nestled in the cozy Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania lies the actual castle that inspired the story of Dracula. Thanks to AirBnb, in 2016 this dungeon-esque dwelling was decked-out with vampire-phernalia and offered to two (un)lucky contestants for a peaceful overnight stay on Halloween.

Julie from Chic Party Ideas transformed her home into a witchy wonderland with lots of fun and easy DIYS. Our favorite are the collection of vintage glass liquor bottles, repurposed as potions vessels fit for the medicine cabinet of Professor Snape himself.

It's hard to choose just one photo of the mistress of kitsch, Christine Mcconnell, winning at Halloween (so we picked two: the one above, and the Gremlins masterpiece at the lead of this post). For years she's been decking out her parents' historic home with insanely spooky sweets and clever macabre decor that is handmade and beautifully documented on her Instagram.

Interior designer Emily Henderson may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of "spooky", but she definitely brings it year after year with her festive Halloween decorations. This year, with the sensitive souls of two youngsters to keep in mind, she opted for classic decorations that minimize fear and maximize those spooky-but-more-fun-and-not-actually-scary Halloween memories (often spiked with a healthy dose of sugar).

When most people think Halloween decor, colorful probably isn't the first adjective to come to mind. We toured Jennifer Perkin's uniquely Spooky, Kooky Halloween-Ready Home a couple times already, and for good reason. Her vibrant home is full of character, color, and tons of seasonal gems that are unconventional and undeniably "Halloween".

This Anaheim, California, AirBnb rental may be available year round, but it always feels like October 31st here. Inspired by the likes of it's neighbors, this "haunted mansion" recalls spooky Victorian-era relics and other chilling tchotchkes to make sure guests rest in peace.

From DIYS to thrift store sprees and printables, Katie from Little House of Four dishes her tips on how to decorate for Halloween. Her neutral color palette and focus on bringing the "outside in" pay be more palatable for those with a weak stomach.
