Today I am a House Guest over with Tobe of Because its Awesome! So happy she invited me, I had SUCH a good time scouring her local Kansas City Craigslist. Wanting to take a road trip pretty badly I have to say.
Click over here to see all my tips and tricks to finding the best vintage on CL, my favorite keywords to use, and a few pretty amazing vintage finds in the Kansas area[like a milo for thayer coggin sofa and some pretty badass brass etageres]! Let us know if you have any great tips, or tell us about an amazing craigslist find you have made!
Cant get enough of the elements in this shot. The beautiful white sofa, gilded frames and sketches, Serge Mouille floor lamp, flowering branches, sculptural accessories, and especially the chartreuse velvet bolster. I can’t seem to get enough of this gorgeous green lately.
These beautiful yet realistic kitchens with inky black lacquer cabinets have been giving me a ton of inspiration lately for our own home.

I am completely in love with Hanna Seabrook’s home tour that was featured on The Glitter Guide.
Hi friends! I am so excited to finally officially announce some new changes happening in the near future. I have been working with the amazing Amanda on a complete re-brand which will include a new website with services information and portfolio, a brand new blog design including a rebrand & name change which hint hint is going to be more in line with the shop name.
Speaking of shop, we are also launching the official Rai Atelier shop. Carrying vintage, refinished, and carefully chosen furniture, lighting, accessories, textiles, and artwork! Also offering re-upholstery options, and vintage & unique furniture and accessories sourcing for those looking for a particular piece we may not have at the moment. This has been in the works for about two years now, and is truly the result turning a hobby and passion into a small business.
There is still a lot to be organized, reupholstered, photographed and some legal/accounting aspects to sort out – but we are hoping to officially launch the e-commerce which will ship to Canada & The US [extremely reasonably and in many cases even INCLUDED in the price] in the late Summer early Fall.
In the mean time there will be some product & inventory sneak peeks, and as always if you are on the hunt for something in particular we can help with that too!
I would so so so appreciate it if you would check out the new website for Rai Atelier , and subscribe to our mailing list to be the first to be notified when the shop launches. Those who subscribe will be privy to an impressive discount code upon opening to make shopping the launch a little bit easier and more exciting! Thank you so much for all your support in advance, I am so excited to show you what I have been working on and curating!
Ps. I am also investigating further specific wholesale products and art I truly adore and feel fit the general aesthetic of the shop. I would be honoured to sell and market your work if it will be the right fit! If you have a product or are an artist and you would be interested in selling through my shop I would so love to hear from you as well.
Just for fun here is some of the logo and branding work we have been narrowing down on for the shop. I would love to hear your input!
