Kim Gordon Brings Her Soulful Style To Santa Monica, $8.45MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 772 Kingman Avenue, Santa Monica
What: A new project by Venice designer Kim Gordon, this time a complete renovation in Santa Monica. Unlike her other recent spec projects (which have been teardowns or infill construction) this property retains its original structure and volume, but not much else. With dark limestone floors, walnut-paneled walls and woodwork, and her signature steel windows, Gordon has changed the game for Mid-Century renovations.
The kitchen, dining area and family room/den is a long connected space, open to the outdoors and the pool area.
What We Love: Wood framed doors with louvered transoms along a long skylit hallway (a look more hallways should aspire to) plus none of the three fireplaces have monitors hanging over them. The fireplace in the master bedroom (below) is faced with a singe slab of marble.
A completely private patio outside the master bath (below) gives a whole new dimension to personal bathing rituals.
