  • high 80.

  • I'm Data Monty's Welcome to my Home.

  • I moved into this 1927 English tutor about five years ago.

  • When I moved into this house.

  • It was all white walls, and I really loathe whitewalls.

  • I love color.

  • I like feeling like all my favorite colors are represented in the house.

  • I had a mural painting that was inspired by a picture of a castle, and there's also little hidden things like monkey up there.

  • There are a few white walls left like this one here because I'm going to cover this in feathers.

  • I love having blank space.

  • Teoh come up with ideas.

  • I started wearing vintage clothes because I couldn't afford all the cool designer jeans my friends had.

  • And then that kind of spilled over into collecting vintage and antique things for my home.

  • So this is my kitchen.

  • I wanted to make a very glamorous kitchen because no matter what you dio, no matter what your house looks like, everyone hangs out in the kitchen.

  • I used to famously have a pink kitchen, and so a lot of these things I took from my up in kitchen and I used them here like the sconces and the chandeliers.

  • I gave these chairs all makeover and painted them.

  • I saw this faucet.

  • It was the most outrageous thing and I had to have it.

  • I just love it.

  • It's really weird and it's not maybe the handiest thing, but I like it.

  • I've also love my August over.

  • A lot of people talk about this still, when they come in, is British racing green stove?

  • I had the plates dipped in copper because I love the copper and green and I had this made.

  • So there are a lot of things that were big challenges and people that had Teoh find to make all these custom things for me, which is not the easy way.

  • I just wanted the most beautiful stove ever, and I got this stuff.

  • And then I realized I had to learn how to use this stove.

  • This'd is my living room.

  • I am a maximalist, not a minimalist.

  • And this room is evidence of it.

  • I have a lot of stuff.

  • You see more of the vintage taxidermy and all my little found treasures.

  • This is a new art piece that a friend of mine from Australia sent to me that does ethical taxidermy of things that died naturally.

  • And she made this bunny a little tailcoat.

  • I have a grandfather clock, which is currently turned off so that it would not being bahng being all over the videos.

  • This is a piece that my friend Stay Sha founded a flea market and then bought the vintage fabric and redid this piece.

  • This actually was a reproduction of a French sofa.

  • It's not very big, and also, I should say, every single sofa in this house is extremely uncomfortable.

  • There's really nowhere comfortable to sit in this house.

  • These air some of my favorite taxidermy in the house.

  • These are Victorian era bird taxidermy in these heart shaped domes.

  • Every time I've moved house, which is three times in the past 20 years, I hand carry those myself because if somebody ever shattered those, I would be devastated.

  • These air all my vintage and rare books like it was a fun one.

  • This is a very rare one, has been a source of truth in burlesque, and we need to get this book.

  • You realize that burlesque was not all Gypsy Rose Lee or like the movie portrayed burlesque But really, it was kind of a glorified strip club in a lot of ways in the thirties and forties.

  • And this book is the proof.

  • I have a lot of collections of my vintage feathers from back in the days when ladies used to wear big, beautiful feathers in their hats and you know they don't make them like this anymore.

  • I promise you, because I by modern feathers all the time and they do not look like this.

  • Lots of useless information from a burlesque dancer.

  • Feathers.

  • I have a lot of powder puffs.

  • I just like him.

  • I keep getting them just like more powder puffs, because you definitely need a powder puff on a stick to thesis in the dining room.

  • I bought this dining room set at the flea market, and I put one of my favorite fabrics that I saw in Paris in a Jacques Garcia hotel, and I had to have it, so I tracked it down, and I put it on these flea market shares.

  • This was just a piece of glass that I cut because there was no glass top, and then my ladies that did all the murals they painted this glass.

  • I'd heard this story that Robert Smith from the curies to keep a lipstick on a, um, string by his front door.

  • And he just, like, put it on before he left.

  • So I asked him once if that was true, and he said it was through at one time.

  • So I put this lipstick on a gold chain so that when I'm having parties and I can't find my lipstick or don't want to go upstairs to my vanity, then I could just, like, do it right here.

  • So it's kind of antique mirror, so I can't see much, but it still works.

  • This'd is an antique fish bowl that I bought when I was on my last US tour.

  • I love going on torques.

  • I have a semi truck filled with all my lighting and my props and all my gear, and I love to go to the antique stores and the Rome or stuff on there, and my crew hates it, but I do.

  • I bring him like this fish bowl until find a spot for that.

  • So this my little patio.

  • I like to have my tea here and watch the hummingbird fights that happened over this feeder.

  • I love red geraniums, and so this is usually filled with red geraniums.

  • I'm obsessed with it because I'm from Michigan and I used to go to this place called the Grand Hotel.

  • And so people from Michigan will know about this.

  • But it's just the longest porch in the world, and it's just tons of boxes of red geraniums.

  • So it's one of those childhood obsessions that has spilled over into my life.

  • It's wintertime, so the backyard is not in full swing, but I love collecting vintage patio furniture and redoing the cushion.

  • So I've had this bed for many years, and it's had been like three different colors.

  • And then this is my latest newest one.

  • So I'm very excited about because I love the tassels, my pool, which rarely gets used because it's freezing, and my pool house, which I turned into a pub.

  • I kind of always indeed, people had a tiki bar something.

  • So I thought, Well, I have an English tutor, so I should make a pub.

  • I had this stained glass put in here as little things that I like in there.

  • There's a swan.

  • There's a feather rose, a glass of champagne and a magic mushroom.

  • I have like a leather bankhead over here, which actually holds pool toys and things like that.

  • This is just like another thing for me to put stuff in.

  • I've started collecting Toby Jugs, so my fans bring me Toby jugs to put into my pool house pub.

  • He wears the Woman Cave Library where I keep a lot of my art collection to that.

  • This is kind of just like a area.

  • I put pictures of myself because I'm to Marissa with them up on the main walls, so I collect a lot of Hollywood memorabilia.

  • This is the course of the Natalie Wood War when she played burlesque star Gypsy Rose Lee in the 1962 film Gypsy.

  • And then this is a course at the Betty Grable War in one of her films in the late forties, and this is kind of like my woman cave and TV room.

  • I bet you can't find the TV.

  • I love art, and I like to look at art, and I don't look like to look at screens, So I hid the TV behind this piece of art.

  • So you basically open this up and pull the TV out.

  • You have to turn it sideways.

  • It's kind of silly, but it is what it is.

  • And this is one of my favorite artists.

  • His name is Peter Driven.

  • I have four paintings from him, which also appears on a men's magazine.

  • Bettie Page posed for these kinds of things, and they're kind of their men's magazines that racy this magazine.

  • I have this painting over here and then I also have this one over here on that wall.

  • I'm very proud of thes thes air Betty Pages favorite shoes.

  • They came from the Irving Klaw Studios, which is where she took all those vintage bondage photos.

  • And I have the model release that she signed in 1952 for $60.

  • Very simple.

  • I mean, that people make me sign, like, five page model releases.

  • Now, this is like four sentences.

  • This is one of my treasured possessions and Art Deco bar.

  • I love painted glass and reverse painted glass.

  • Oh, I have my barn.

  • Take this like music festivals and loaded up with my favorite booze.

  • No one would suspect a thing, right?

  • I've collected a lot of this art over the years that inspired my pinup career.

  • And also they painted all these jewels that are kind of meant to be holding the paintings.

  • And then I also love this tassel.

  • There's, ah, designer called Jacques Garcia.

  • That always does these long rope tassels.

  • I shoved this into my suitcase.

  • Super heavy.

  • Um, I'm one of my trips home from Paris, but I really love it ever to walk up there.

  • I love the feeling of that rope.

  • You know what I mean?

  • This is my upstairs area where my bedroom is, and all my closets are.

  • I think they used to be Children's rooms, but they're not anymore.

  • I have a very, very close friend who's a shoe designer, so that's why I have this many shoes.

  • And of course, I have all the showbiz shoes here.

  • There's shoes I wear a lot more than others.

  • So those air kind of friends and are usually and they're kind of arranged by color, all the everyday ballet flats are down here cause I don't wear high heels every day and most the black shoes together.

  • I designed this bed after a Mae West bed.

  • Mae West famously had mirrors all over her bedroom because she said she liked to see how she was doing.

  • My boyfriend and I had designed these curtains together based on a few historic pictures, and I waited for months to get this fabric in and took it to a drapery place.

  • And I actually had to go there in person and help in these on because they didn't do it right.

  • And I was like, Honestly, just do it like this.

  • So they're like, we didn't think about doing it like that.
