JENNI KAYNE AT STANFORD ... Southern California fashion and home designer Jenni Kayne opened her first northern California store at Stanford Shopping Center last week. The boutique echoes her other stores with bleached wood, a stone floor and wood fixtures, featuring clothes and home goods such as pottery, simple porcelain, matte gold cutlery, linens and beach towels. For over a decade, Kayne's professional and personal pursuits have informed her aesthetic point of view -- a warm, inviting minimalism that's translated from her apparel collection to the modern traditions of family: entertaining, travel and food. With boutiques in West Hollywood, Brentwood and Montecito, she focuses on fashion, beauty, motherhood and home together in her lifestyle blog named after her children, Rip & Tan.
