A Mortician's "Victorian Naturalist" Los Angeles Home — House Tour

Name: Caitlin Doughty
Location: Mid City — Los Angeles, California
Size: 1.000 square feet
Years lived in: Renting 6 years

She speaks around the world on the history of death culture, rituals and the funeral industry, and her home is both a reflection of her passions and a celebration of the things she’s dedicated her life to.
