The exquisite, contemporary Venice home of L.A.-based rug designer Erik Lindstrom offers elegant seaside living amidst impeccable design, all with a focus on sustainable space planning. The stunning architectural design by Erla Dogg Ingjaldsdottir and Tryggvi Thorsteinsson of Minarc and polished interior design by Lisa Strong transform 621 Mildred Avenue into more than a home—it’s a work of art that curates a lifestyle bursting with beauty. With three bedrooms and four bathrooms, this 2,766-square-foot home boasts city and ocean views, incredible amenities, and an ideal location.
The home immediately makes an impression with an artistic, contemporary facade. Glass windows soar against the white exterior and a yellow door adds intrigue. The exterior of the lower-level garage is clad in Japanese burnt wood—an ancient method called shou sugi ban—to mimic the plinth of an art gallery exhibit. Inside, residents are met with bright, open spaces bursting with light. The details speak volumes with extraordinary finishes and fixtures.
The great room offers a chic, open space to entertain, with a double-sided, floor-to-ceiling, metal fireplace dividing the living room, dining room, and kitchen, lined with a seating ledge to relax by the fire. With statement brass light fixtures, a long built-in credenza, and a dark accent wall, the dining room presents a fresh take on formality. The living area is set against a wall of glass with magnificent views. The Poliform kitchen beckons gourmet cooking with a burguny marble backsplash set against a custom gray cabinetry. Enjoy a built-in gas range and hood as well as an island with bar seating.
Residents will marvel at the rooftop deck, which includes 360-degree city and ocean views, an expansive fire pit, and plenty of room to lounge and entertain. The deck is surrounded by glass walls, so views are completely uninterrupted.
In the gorgeous guest suite, dual brass light fixtures hang low on either side of the bed. A wall of glass opens up to a patio space, lined with black bamboo. An open spa-like bathroom features a gold tinted mirror. It’s a private retreat, providing the paramount of tranquility.
Residents will enjoy Venice living at its finest, within close proximity to canals and Abbot Kinney Boulevard. A two-car garage adds convenience and the prime location is moments away from the beach, farmers’ market, restaurants, shopping and coffee shops. The fully recyclable building system was designed to reduce waste while yielding net zero efficiency. For those looking to live amidst all things artful and extraordinary, this home will exceed your expectations. Welcome to contemporary perfection, where aesthetics and pleasure preside.
