About Rye Home

Kirsten Calhoun founded Rye Home, in her home town of Santa Cruz, as an expression of her abiding interest in art, interior design, food, gardening, and travel.

Her love for European travel is expressed in her selection of ceramics, textiles, glassware, cutlery, and wood pieces, amongst many other products, that share texture, warmth, and a quiet palette - with pops of color here and there.

Making local connections with artists and makers in Santa Cruz, as well as offering classes and gatherings for the local community, are integral to her commitment to honoring her roots in her hometown.

Kirsten’s mission is to inspire Rye’s customers to create and share memorable experiences - gathering for celebratory meals with friends and family, picnicking on the beach or in the woods, or creating a stylish, comfortable, and inviting home that will be enjoyed for years.

Beauty. Quality. Utility.
