In Good Company with Humanity Magazine

When Humanity asked to feature me in their beautiful magazine, I was incredibly honored. I admire that they support and highlight so many of the businessmen and women, entrepreneurs and philanthropists I admire. To say I’m in good company in their latest issue is an understatement and it’s renewed my faith in the common bond of humanity and will continue to help celebrate all that unites and joins us in a world that can appear to be dividing us. Thank you to Catherine Wagley and Jessica Edwards for putting so much care into the piece and to Danielle, I’m always so grateful for your support.

Recreate the Look – Neutrals and Texture

 

Get The Look 1

At DIANI Living, we love texture and juxtaposition. Mixing smooth and grainy, dark and light, new and old are simple ways to make a space feel dynamic and inviting. When I go out on buying travels, I always have this in mind and, to give a sense of how some of our finds work together, we’re starting a series of posts that recreate a look we love from our inspiration sources like Pinterest. I’m drawn to the character that bold stripes infuse and, with all the neutral textures in this setting above, it inspired me to pull the look together with a few pieces from our store.

Get The Look 2

All pieces are available in our store and on our website:

Small Basket Lamp. $250 here

Zulu African basket. $210 here

Black and White Striped Cushion. $120 here

A New Project in New York – The Farm

This year has a lot in store for us at DIANI Living and one of our exciting projects takes us to the Hudson Valley, NY. We have started restoration on an 18th Century Farmhouse and will be bringing it back to all it’s glory with the help of local artisans and craftspeople. Step one was to make the chimney safe and sound so that we could have fires to make the place warm and cozy on those snowy Hudson Valley days and nights. Over the course of the restoration, we’ll be posting updates on the improvements as we make this amazing slice of history a home for another 265 years! Here’s a peek at the property and it’s surrounding barns.

A Few Easy Pieces to Refresh Your Home After the Holidays

We just returned from an inspiring trip to England and visited many old haunts that reminded me that home really is where the heart is. Home is also where special memories and pieces are collected and that is a philosophy that rules my design decisions when collaborating with clients on their homes and curating DIANI Living. With the holidays over and New Year’s resolutions set, it’s the perfect environment to inspire creativity and new beginnings. Here are a few easy pieces to get the ball rolling. And, if you need on-site help, we now offer in-home consults. For more information, email customercare@dianiliving.com.

Bring in some new pillows to add texture and pattern. Vintage African pom pom pillow ($450) or our French linen pillow ($140).

Hang some new artwork. We love our local Santa Barbara prints by DIANI Living’s Jeffrey Doornbos (starting at $35).

We’ve got you covered when it comes to your health as well. Come in and grab Frank Lipman’s latest book, The New Health Rules ($19.95) and our best selling Ayurvedic copper water bottles ($40).

Our wood sugar molds make a great objet d’art or a handy holder for silverware or herbs ($150).

Bring the outdoors in with some fresh succulents. We love planting a small arrangement in our handmade ceramic pot. ($35). Available in store and online and our table centerpieces available in various sizes and prices in-store.
