Gift Guide: The Consummate Creative

NAME: Jenni Kayne

PROFESSION: American designer and blogger

HOME BASE: Santa Monica, California 


DESIGN PHILOSOPHY: Don’t follow trends.

YOUR DECOR STYLE IN 3 WORDS: Classic California living

DESIGN TREND YOU LOVE? No trends! But I love handmade pottery. ONE YOU WISH WOULD GO AWAY? I hate when women wear their workout clothes all day.

COLOR OR NEUTRAL? Neutral always!

WHEN NO ONE IS HOME BUT ME: You can find me in a warm bath full of salts and oils.

YOU WILL NEVER SEE bright colors or patterns IN MY HOME

I SAVE ON everyday glassware, I SPLURGE ON pottery or art.
