Our new studio

Posted: Jun 16 2015

Those of you who follow our blog will know that I ran KAYU from home for a couple of years before deciding that it was time to have a place just for all things KAYU. Two years ago we made the move to a beautiful studio in one of my favorite neighborhoods, South Park. Our office was in the middle of a beautiful park smack in the middle of San Francisco, right next to all the cool restaurants and boutiques. The problem was it was a thirty minute drive from where I live (and that’s on a good day with no traffic). When I had my first child last September I knew it was time to move again. There was no way I was driving an hour each day to and from work. I started looking for spaces in downtown Burlingame, an adorable town only ten minutes from my home. When I came upon our current space I knew it was the one. It’s a 700 sq foot space that used to be an architect’s office and was perfect for the KAYU team.

It took us over a month to decorate the space but after much back and forth, pinterest boards and shopping sprees at IKEA, the space is finally done. We have an open meeting area that houses a dining table from Home Goods and chairs from DWR, two smaller offices with white desks and chairs, and a light-filled sun room that is great for parties. One of my favorite pieces is a vintage pie-safe which we found in an antique store. It’s painted the perfect shade of turquoise and now houses our latest collection.

To celebrate our new space and introduce our Cote D’Azur inspired collection, we recently hosted a French themed soiree. We were lucky to be able to team up with so many talented vendors who made our vision come to life. We wanted designated areas for eating and drinking, and a flower bar where guests could make their own bouquet.


Our talented Creative Director Kim made this canopy just for the event!

The food was catered by Nuri’s Kitchen and Macarons a Go Go, and the beautiful table setting and flowers were done by Chairs + Cups. 

I’ve always wanted to see our name in lights 🙂

I hope you enjoyed the tour. For those of you in the Bay Area do stay tuned for more parties, and for all who helped make the space come to life a big thank-you!
