Hi! I'm Rachel Rae, a wife, fur-mama, Blogger here on Rachel Rae Living and Creator + Owner of Agapé Candles. Born and raised a California girl, I have a strong love for the coast and the country side. As a kid my mom, sister and I would spend Saturdays cruising around looking at model homes. I've always loved walking into a home and seeing what could be done. My Dad is a man who would make or fix anything. If he couldn't find what he needed, he would imagine it up and make it. Seeing this my whole life, I came to love working with my hands, creating something, stepping back and seeing what it turned into.

American craftsmanship is emotional to me, to see the hard work put into a home brings me so much great joy. My personal style is more relaxed, I love to use linens and different soft but durable textiles in my home. I love patina, a curved ceiling and of course anything ornate that tells a story. Being a "home" person, I thrive on having things beautiful around me. At home you can find me always rearranging, painting, or in my studio pouring candles. I love spending time at home and an adventure here and there with my sweet husband and our 2 fur-babies in tow!
