Reality star and tattoo artist Kat Von D may be best known for her TLC series LA Ink and for dating Jesse James after Sandra Bullock divorced him.
She listed her 1920s Spanish-style home for $2.5 million recently and then removed it, but not before giving the world a glimpse of her Gothic style.
The listing said: “Gated and private artist’s retreat with guest house. Romantic 1920’s Spanish. 4 Beds, 4.5 Baths. Recently upgraded systems. Chef’s kitchen with Viking Appliances leads to the large formal dining room, beautiful hardwood floors & original tile. High ceilings. Retractable projection screen with surround sound in living room, cozy outdoor area w/ barbecue, firepit & spa.”

A reader named Kim sent me old listing photos that show how the house looked when Kat Von D bought it. It’s fun to compare the before and afters.
For instance, here’s how the living room looked before she moved in:

A Yahoo! article about her house says:
“Décor wise, Von D seems to be going for an Alice in Wonderland-goes-Goth vibe. The living room features red and purple velvet-upholstered chairs, drippy candles with hardened wax spilling out of the fireplace and on to the floor, creepy paintings of ghastly faces, a dramatic candelabra, and mini replicas of deer on the mantel.”
