i’m delighted to take you inside the brand new san francisco-based home of floral design studio, tulipina. regarded as one of the most sought-after floral designers in the u.s. and beyond, owner kiana underwood recently moved her workspace from her home in nearby burlingame to this light-filled loft in sf’s potrero hill. her signature garden-style combines plenty of color, texture and a medley of floral varieties, including fun pops of fruit and foliage. you can see why her arrangements are coveted for every wedding and event! she further extends her passion through teaching, hosting both local and destination workshops for fellow floral enthusiasts and professionals. in fact, she’s teaching a course in indonesia as we speak.


i’ve seen kiana’s work up close at a number of events and workshops and i’ve admired and loved every installation–from lush tablescapes to hanging chandeliers. the moment she shared a photo of her new studio, i knew I had to pay her a visit.
