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?

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.

I think I like the second one better. I love the classic details and touches of modern ...it feels more homey and warm.

LOVE Kansas City! I think I like the traditional styling best, but would switch out some elements with the modern.

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!

Three must sees are The Curious Sofa, Nell Hills and the plaza which has a lot of nice stores for shopping! Beautiful at Christmas time. It's all lit up!

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!!!

I lean towards the modern, but there are definitely aspects of the classic that I love too. It's all good! :)
