We are constantly looking to feel inspired, and we’ve found that some of the best sources of inspiration are right in our backyard. Palo Alto and Menlo Park are home to some of Northern California’s most stylish boutiques and restaurants. Here are a few of our favorite local shop interiors!


Jenni Kayne Apparel + Home

Located in the Stanford Shopping Center, this Palo Alto oasis is abundant with natural light and adheres to a minimalist sensibility. This store is warm, inviting and open, featuring neutral hues, organic elements like accents of bleached walnut, white brick walls, and travertine floors. Jenni Kayne Apparel + Home interiors offer a refreshing retail experience tailored to an assortment of lifestyle essentials. We absolutely love this store’s selection of floral arrangements and of course, it’s shoe and accessory collection!

Mademoiselle Colette

This Parisian-inspired pastry shop located in Menlo Park takes a unique spin on french flavors and stylish decors. Debora Ferrand is the owner/founder of Mademoiselle Colette and continues to innovate and create french delicates, inspired by her vast cultural background. She brings an elevated sophistication to the Bay Area and not to mention, an array of delicious treats. Perfect for coffee and pastries, we can’t get enough of this charming French pâtisserie.
