Be careful what you wish for. Isn't that the truth? Anyway, vampires aren't just for Halloween anymore kiddies. The Western world has a serious romance with the fanged. So go ahead and turn your mini mansion into a vampy abode with these elegant additions!
1) First, you might want to move a well dressed Vampire into your dollhouse:
Above is Dracula by Julie Kendell of Jakdaws Attic http://www.freewebs.com/jakdaws/
Above are 'The Waspies' by Eileen Sedgwick. She didn't title them Vampires specifically but they sure fit the bill! http://www.eileensedgwick.com/web2009.5_files/page0001.htm
Above is a beautiful Goth girl by PetiteProperties. Is she a Vamp or just the girlfriend?
Pat Benedict of WhoopitydooArt has been a prolific creator of an increadible array of Vampish dolls and ornaments, all one of a kind and handmade. Below are 2 of my favorite examples. To see more of her work: http://www.flickr.com/photos/20126126@N08/
2) Next, maybe add a few select pieces of bat winged or coffin inspired Gothic furniture? Above is a Gothic Vampire Bat Magical Hutch by MidnightsDream. The leathery curtains resemble bat wings! : http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=33009601
While searching for goulish goodies online, I stumbled across some of my own work on a forum called VampireRave.com They feature links and member ratings of all things related to Vampires. My OOAK Bella Lugosi Bed had a pretty good rating! Thanx my infernal friends! http://www.vampirerave.com/db/entry.php?id=18383&category=53
Below is my most recent creation, the OOAK Vampire Bat Dungeon Throne... not for the faint of heart! Available at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=33945649
3) Since the current bloodsucker frenzy was inspired by a novel, how about a Vampire themed library?

I then found some very cute mice drinking from goblets of red 'wine'... does it have to be merlot or could it be the elixer of Mr. Vampire's poor dinner date?
You can also find wooden coffin trinket boxes at Micheals and other art supply stores. Of course more is available around Halloween so stock up! The scale might be a bit off, maybe too wide or too short for 1:12 dollhouses, but if you keep looking you will find some nice items that you can alter. Below is one of my own examples:
