Design Crush: A Love Letter to David Jimenez

Dear David,
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways… No really, I think we are soul mates and should run off together to a mid century modernist home in Palm Springs and make beautiful rooms together. Let’s throw amazingly fabulous parties full of brightly colored cocktails and even more fabulous people. Your work in nothing short of brilliant and the kind of rooms I hope to produce someday. The blend of color and texture, simplicity and layers…how do you do it, dear David? Pictures speak louder than words, and these here make my heart skip a beat.


  1. He is amazing! I bought a Hallmark magazine (I believe he is the Creative Director)that featured a makeover that he did. It had 3 diff designs and they were all fabulous. I look at those pages all the time and I’m always drawn to his extreme ability to layer! Love his website too…..

  2. I don’t know, Erin. I’ve seen pictures of your house and think it’s both beautiful and approachable. David’s rooms are pretty, but frozen, like a hotel room. KWIM? xoxo

  3. Interesting, but it falls into the “I’d visit, but wouldn’t want to live there” category for me.

    Very bright, but I can’t see myself in any of those rooms in my own home

  4. You are too funny! But his work is seriously amazing, jaw-dropping in fact. You may have some competition, I might have to write him a love letter myself:)

  5. I think I have a new design crush too now!! Love his style and the colours he uses — even the yellow, and I’m not normally a fan of yellow.

    I’m in the process of creating an art gallery wall similar to couple of the walls in the pics that you posted.

    Thanks for sharing some great design inspiration :-)

  6. He is beyond amazing! I have been in love with his work since the first image I saw of his long, long ago. I dont know how he continues to do it…the use of color, the furniture, just everything is perfection! LOVE HIM

  7. Wow! That yellow bathroom, and those yellow side table lamps, and that blue dining room with the orange accents….oh my goodness! Such talent!!

  8. David is incredibly talented and a total sweetheart to boot. I LOVE him! He is hands-down, one of my absolute favorite designers.

    Yum, yum, yum to this post!

  9. So lovely. That bathroom (and the chandy!) is to die for.

    By the way, have you visisted Sproost ( yet? They’re a new online design center and they have a truly excellent (and accurate) quiz on finding your design style.

    I posted my husband’s and my results on my blog yesterday, too…alas, we have nothing in common decorating-wise (but I knew that).

  10. I am blushing right now but you can’t see it. Your post just made my day! Thank you for all of the positive feedback and comments.


  11. Oh my David, i am so humbled (and slightly embarrassed by my gushing) hat you stopped by my little blog- you have MANY fans here!!! :)

  12. I LOVE these rooms! David is a lover of color as I am and his rooms are so sexy and sophisticated!! Thanks for introducing me to another great talent in the industry!!

  13. I am so in "lust"…where has he been all my life? I don't know what it is, but I too would love to transform my life into a Slim Aaron Palm Springs photo, complete with a flowy caftan & cocktail!
    Thanks as always, for bring these remarkable photos into my home.
