Spaces: Kim and Dave West, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn

Occupations: Kim West, Wholesale Marc Jacobs/Dave West, Real Estate

Kim and her husband Dave (not pictured) have a knack for buying and renovating New York apartments. In the last 3 years, they have made some key changes to their Cobble Hill hill two-bedroom apartment. They have remodeled the kitchen, repainted the entire apartment (painting the natural wood crown molding white) and converted the powder room to a full-size bathroom. The 2nd floor brownstone apartment still includes the Pre War details such as 2 fireplaces and quaint architectural elements, but when you walk in, it feels new, pristine and refreshing. To the right of the living room is a dining area/office which can also serve as a guestroom. How could I forget the flower-pot-trimmed terrace which is manicured to perfection? I still can't get over that kitchen. Finally, as you can see in the photos, their two pugs--Smudge and Bella--reign full court at the West's home.


  1. Kim and Dave have an absolutely lovely home in Brooklyn. It reflects their impeccable taste and style. This blog reflects a modern couple that have achieved their dream of home/hearth and appear to surround their world with comfort and grace. The dogs, that reign supreme, along with the floral outdoor decking, reflect Brooklyn as a loveable/liveable place and space. Praise and kudos to the West family with their babies Bella and Smudge!!! Old world charm, modern tone.

  2. love the vanity mirror and the kitchen. thanks for the tour :)
