Absolutely Lovely Kim Gordon In Venice, $4.25MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 910 Dickson Street, Venice
Who: The sellers are fashion entrepreneurs Kelly Furano (True Religion, The Row, Elizabeth + James) and her husband Keith Eshelman (TOMS Shoes, Parks Project).
What: A 4-bed, 3-bath 2014 renovation by designer/developer Kim Gordon, who started her career creating shell-framed mirrors and evolved into one of Venice’s most sought-after creators of effortlessly chic homes, both renovations and new, bespoke projects.
Hallmarks: High ceilings (here, over 10-foot high) white walls and custom, industrial-style steel windows, plus an adroit use of warm wood details, often from recycled timber. Gordon’s easy-going vibe conveys a kind of beachy serenity without the kitsch. You know you’re in Venice.
What We Love: The open, elevated kitchen is equipped with two dishwashers, lots of prep space and a discreet pantry that segues into a home office. Countertops are Richlite, an almost indestructible composite material made of resin and recycled paper (originally used in laboratories) that’s become a favorite of designers for both interior and exterior applications.
Upstairs, the romantic master bedroom and spa-size bath open to a narrow balcony.
