DIANI Living



At DIANI Living, we search far and wide to find everyday home and lifestyle items that embody beauty and functionality. In our small jewel box of a space, you’ll find everything from our own furniture designs to Moroccan towels to Japanese home & garden scissors to carefully curated one-off vintage finds. And while you’re here, grab a vase or a vessel and have our botany specialist create a one-of-a-kind succulent arrangement just for you at our Botany Bar. And, of course, all of this comes with the kind of customer service you’ve come to expect from our other stores, DIANI Boutique and DIANI Shoes. Come by and visit us at Arlington Plaza, 1324 State Street Santa Barbara CA 93101. Call 805 770 7043 to reach us at the store.

Caroline Diani

Caroline was born in Nairobi, Kenya, raised mostly in Northern England and currently lives in Santa Barbara, California. Caroline grew up around retail and quickly learned the value of excellent customer service and having a talent for product curation. After completing a degree in Fashion in London and an internship at Patagonia Headquarters in Ventura, California, Caroline moved permanently to Santa Barbara and, in 2002, founded DIANI. Following it’s success, she opened DIANI Shoes and launched the e-commerce division, dianiboutique.com in 2006.  Caroline married her husband, Jeffrey Doornbos in 2013 and, in 2014, they collaborated on DIANI Living, a home concept boutique which recently expanded in 2017. Her inspirations for product assortments are gathered from frequent travel and curiosity for timeless, quality design.
