Here, we look at the #WFH life of Kim Gordon, the home design and real estate star profiled in Furnishings. Gordon moved into her 3,600-square-foot abode in Brentwood’s Mandeville Canyon about a year ago. “My regular office was a small mid-century house in the outskirts of Venice. Still a home, but the feeling was more of a busy beach city,” says Gordon. Now, she is able to hike just outside her door and enjoy the mountain views. “It’s like camping,” she says. kimgordondesigns.com

Interior Design Kim Gordon
- Gordon describes the aesthetic when she moved in as, “grandma’s midcentury with brown and beige mushroom tiles and spring onion wallpaper.”
- With her two sons homeschooling during quarantine, she had nowhere to work quietly, so she cleared a corner in the oversized bedroom closet, which features views of the Santa Monica mountains, to create her “cloffice.”
- Because of the slight slope of the property, she designed a series of decks and little houses for various uses: a writer’s cabin, a sauna, a grow house.
- Gordon salvaged the pieces of a fantastic kitchen from one of her other projects and they miraculously fit into the kitchen here.
- The house butts up against federal land so no one can build a house adjacent to hers.
