Kat Von D shows off the handmade Etsy finds in her goth/steampunk home #Home#celebrity home#gothic December 4 2012 | Caroline drechyng I'm a huge fan of Kat Von D, but love her or hate her, I think we can all agree her house is awesome. She posted this short tour of the weird and wonderful pieces in her home — all handmade by Etsy shop owners and her artist friends — and the objects are rad as hell. An acoustic phonograph iPod dock; tiny terrariums in lightbulbs; the "antique" keyboard… all among Kat's goth/Victorian/steampunk decor (the dining room set — oh my godddd). William Morris said: "Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful," and Kat seems to agree. She's included a list of links for you so you can bogart her style. Oh, and speaking of her style: don't miss her tour of her gorgeous dressing room and drool-worthy shoe closet!

But I am a HUGE FAN of her SIC WICKED NUTS AWESOME DEADLY HOUSE!!!!! 2 agree Reply The mention of William Morris made me feel all warm and squishy inside. All good things come from this man. He is the savior of functional art/ decor- so check him out (AND the philosophy of the arts & crafts movement) – love me, resident art history geek Reply She was far less annoying in this video then she is in her show. Reply I want a door bell like that!! I wonder where she got it? Reply That doorbell is awesome, I could only aspire to make something as cool as that. I made a Fortune teller that you can pick the mood/attitude of. It can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/ioBKZJC_1GQ . I'm truly humbled by the doorbell though… Reply I'm a huge fan of Victorian/Steampunk decor and clothing. So many fun things in her house and I love that she's a patron of Etsy! Like so many here, I would LOVE to have that doorbell! Kat, I watched your other video on your closet and would love to invite you to visit my etsy shop "The Victorian Flower Child" at Rabbits Run Interiors. I have lots of vintage clothing and accessories as well as upcycled clothing and housewares. Thanks for allowing us into your incredible home. Blessings!
