Eerie Inspiration to Spookify Your Space

To quote Mean Girls, "In the regular world, Halloween is when children dress up in costumes and beg for candy. In the décor world, Halloween is the one night a year when an an interior can look totally over-the-top crazy and no one can say anything about it." That last part might have gone a bit differently in the movie, but the point remains: people go big for Halloween. Whether you're planning a party, expecting trick-or-treaters, or just want to embrace your spooky side, why not up your home's haunt factor this season? To help you get your creep on, we've collected some of the spookiest interiors from classic Halloween films and real-life homes to act as inspiration. So check out these frightening, easy-to-steal ideas, like staring stuffed crows, cloudy antique mirrors, dark floral arrangements, and a whole lot of candles, bones, and skulls to fill your own house with. We dare you not to be in spooky spirits after seeing these shots from Halloween faves like The Craft, Poltergeist, and Hocus Pocus. shop-look
