Designer Crush: Kristen Peña

You may know Kristen Peña as the talented designer who created the perfect teen girl bedroom for last year's San Francisco Decorator Showcase. But what you may not know is that Peña's professional journey started during her own young years, when the Syracuse native yearned for a colorful, creative life beyond the borders of her hometown. After studying abroad and cultivating an appreciation for elegance and proportions, Peña relocated to San Francisco where she expanded her sense of playfulness, and took trips to Southeast Asia, Morocco, and Africa that inspired her love of patterns and textures. Peña then attended architecture and design school at UC Berkeley, later applying her skills and talent to a role in advertising before breaking into children's clothing design. From there, she transitioned into interiors, infusing her creations with a passion for storytelling and thoughtful curation. Learn more in our Q+A below.
