Double Take: David Jimenez’s Carriage House

David Jimenez’s Kansas City Carriage House
David Jimenez is by far, one of my favorite interior designers. His exquisite style feels current, yet classic. Perhaps because his work is never overtly trendy and is always sublimely tasteful. He excels at accessorizing and layering rooms perfectly. Each room seems to tell a story.

Jimenez, splits his time between his homes in San Francisco, Palm Springs, and his main residence in Kansas City, one of my favorite spaces ever. David’s carriage house alone is enough to send my heart aflutter. Most of you will probably recognize the modern take on the carriage house, but this year, David updated it in a more classic style. Take a look at both takes below. Which do you like best?

  1. Ha ha fancy seeing you here Lauren. I love David’s work. It’s amazing. These rooms remind me a little of Nate Berkus. I think Nate has been sneaking a peak at David’s work.

    I must make a trip to Kanas City. Everyone in the design community raves about it! I must go.

  2. What all is there to do in Kansas City? My sister-in-law and her husband live in Olathe, a suburb of Kansas and we are planning to go visit them soon. I would love to know more about some of the design destinations so that I can hopefully visit some of them!

  3. What a great surprise to see photos of my carriage house on your site! Thank you for your positive comments. It really means a lot to me.

    I enjoyed reading your blog. Keep up the great work!

    I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.



  4. Oh my god. David Jimenez reads your blog! Amazing! That is so exciting. You must meet up with him when you vist K.C.

    I’m itching to make a trip there. I just realized that Kate Spade grew up there. So knowing how much we all love K.S. makes me think that K.C. must be a fab place.

    Road trip ladies!!!
