JJ Redick, currently a shooting guard for the Dallas Mavericks shows off his Parisian inspired home in his Brooklyn Duplex. Redick’s wife Chelsea and two sons Knox and Kai reside in their gut renovated Dumbo penthouse.In 2015 the Redicks initially started apartment hunting in New York City to find a temporary home to live in during the off season. JJ was playing for the Los Angeles Clippers at the time and the couple had just recently welcomed their first child and wanted to be closer to their families on the East Coast.The family put down a deposit on the 1913 factory building which was being converted into a residential complex. The couple were drawn to the grittiness of the warehouse and its backstory. A year later and now with their second child, Chelsea inspected their construction zoned apartment and instantly thought it was too small. She investigated the adjacent penthouse and found that it was much larger and included a 2,600 square foot terrace. She instantly knew that they had to swap.Successful, the couple hired decorator Michael Aiduss who helped turn this initial temporary residence into a long-term home. Chelsea was inspired by European apartments and Parisian details, the opposite of the industrial Brooklyn warehouse they were in.
