Some people seem to be born with great taste, and today’s subject, Kim West (who also happens to be one of my best friends) is without a doubt one of them. Though in some ways our aesthetics are polar opposite — on a recent trip to Miami she declared that she wanted “to move into” the maximalist Faena hotel while I was perfectly content to head back to our monochromatic space — I can’t help but swoon every time I set foot in her south Austin abode. Her background in fashion – she worked for Jil Sander and Marc Jacobs in NYC – combined with her current life as an interior designer gave her the perfect experience to co-found SUPPLY Showroom earlier this year with partners Callie Jenschke and Kristin Gish. Together, the three tastemakers source the most exquisite fabric, furniture, wallpaper, rugs and lighting from all over the world and draw a fan-base of designers from all over the state. It’s no surprise that Kim’s home is a reflection of the beautifully-curated world she works and plays in each day — and her husband David, 4-year-old Lulu, and 1-year-old Ollie only add to the fun and energetic mix. Click through for our favorite spots in Kim’s home along with all her incredible shopping sources.
