The Day We Celebrated A Mama-To-Be DIANI Girl

DIANI Living Baby Shower

It’s always fun to celebrate life changing experiences with your co-workers, and we especially enjoyed showering our VP of Web and  Mama-to-be, Whitney last summer.

DIANI Living Baby Shower

The baby shower was safari themed and set up in our back garden with seating on low cushions under Indian print umbrellas to keep it casual and intimate. We served English finger sandwiches and scones and Enjoy cupcakes. Our favorite succulent arrangement designers, Dalla Vita helped us pull everything together with delicate napkin rings, juicy centerpieces, fun paint dipped votive party favors and cake decorations to top off our African wildlife ornament adorned cake.

 In the end, as often is the case, it was the tiny details that made welcoming Whitney’s little one into the world!

Tour of the New DIANI Design Studio

It has been an exciting week since we showcased our new DIANI Design Studio with Sam of Could I Have That. We had been collaborating on a custom floor cushion for her daughter’s reading tent in her bedroom and it was the perfect occasion to give her a tour of the new studio.

DIANI Design Studio came about after a series of design requests at our home store, DIANI Living. With the space being so limited, I was craving and envisioned a space where I could work with a client, spread out fabrics, play with cushions on couches and daybeds and show newest arrivals of vintage finds and furniture. Fast forward about a year and the perfect spot became available downtown in Santa Barbara, not far from our retail stores.

DIANI Design Studio is a project-driven studio offering custom design, interior and art services. We can work with interior concepts in hotels, commercial spaces, residential homes, restaurants and retail. We also design custom furniture, cushions, artwork and collect vintage items.




Having a mezzanine in the studio allows for a quiet work place upstairs and creative “free” studio with large drafting and cutting table on the ground level.

To enquire about a studio appointment or design work, email caroline@dianiliving.com.
