Studio Choo Blooms in San Francisco

January 26, 2012

As a floral designer in my past life, I have long been an admirer of San Francisco's Studio Choo for their emphasis on locally grown and wild flora.

I was so interested in their work that one foggy afternoon a few years ago, I drove from the city to an address listed on their blog in Pacifica. I assumed that they had a store there, but when I pulled onto a quiet residential street, I realized that proprietors Alethea Harampolish and Jill Rizzo designed flowers out of their houses. I was too shy to knock, but when the two best friends opened their official store in January of 2010, I was delighted to visit and have referred friends there ever since. Located on Divisadero Street in San Francisco, Studio Choo (as a part of Prairie Collective, a group of friends with similar small business) boasts a selection of home accessories in addition to seasonal flower arrangements.
