SEB (Studio Early Brids) History

We at Studio Early Birds are very aware of the influence one’s environment can have on the body and mind, and our mission is to make the world a more thoughtful and positive place through this connection.

As a creative studio based in the South Bay , and Tokyo. whose goal is to help our community thrive, we offer the following skill sets: interior styling and design, professional photography, graphic design, and creative direction.  With multiple disciplines under our belt, we look forward to working on diverse projects, from smaller, specialized designs to larger scale comprehensive projects.


Our work involves much more than simply making everything pretty: we consider design as an extension of the innate function each space embodies, and a physical calculation on how to best guide people through a space.  What sets us apart is our strong conviction in the belief that the right setting can uplift the human spirit, and our dedication to design for the good of the people.  


Whether you are a business, a creative group, charity, or any other type of local organization, feel free to contact us. We are excited to help our local environment and are open to any type of project that synergizes with our ideology.  Whether you’d like to commission, collaborate, or just talk, we here at Studio Early Birds are happy to interact with our community!


The Founder

Chinatsu Kambayashi


Chinatsu is utilizing her decades of commercial interior styling experience to bring local spaces a tailored and unique design experience.

When building or decorating a space, people often think the design of the house will fall into place with the right paint color, the width of crown molding, the height of the windows, or the type of flooring they use.  But we have all been to homes that are exquisitely crafted and still feel stark and empty. So how do you style your business space to tangibly represent your brand?

Chinatsu understands how to bring all of those elements together harmoniously in a designer’s gestalt vision.  She naturally and artistically curates every aspect of her life in this way. A Tokyo native, she began her career as an editor for a fashion and lifestyle magazine; she styled photo shoots and eventually branched out as a freelance stylist.  In 2000 Chinatsu and an architect friend founded Jamo associates Ltd. They began working together all over Japan, constructing and styling multi-million dollar projects. Chinatsu’s eye for design, natural talent, and unmatched work ethic made her an international success.  She travelled around the globe to consult on interior design projects. Her value laid in her ability to read each client, to hear their dream for a space or the intention of their brand and mirror it with texture, fabric, lighting, and artwork.


For ten years, Chinatsu was an internationally-celebrated, highly-demanded interior stylist. In 2010, her life was altered abruptly - she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She fought hard, enduring treatments and invasive surgery, and eventually opted for a more holistic healing approach. She worked more mindfully, became conscious of how to eat, moved more, and became a dedicated yogi. While spending most of her time in California with her sister and friends, she embraced a slower, more purposeful life. Chinatsu’s cancer battle transformed her outlook on life and work, and she’s now put that into projects. She consults for solution by design and visual works, styles photo shoots and event, and showcase a more intentional, meaningful way of life.  

Whether you’re looking for a French-Renassiance-inspired dining room, an organic zen garden, or beachy-chic apartment, Chinatsu knows which furniture, textiles, and colors are needed to actualize your vision.  As a successful business owner, she understands brand awareness and how to make evident through design. She transforms  spaces to be ready for the market; she internalizes each purpose and intention and brings them to life with a uniquely artistic eye, patient disposition, and world-renowned interior styling experience.


Chinatsu is a strong believer in the influence one’s environment can have on our well-being.  With her design philosophy and vast experience, she has truly elevated the study of interior creativity to levels.  She brings an authentic, soulful touch to her creations, drawn from her renewed lifestyle beliefs.
