Who is Ray?

I get asked this all the time. Who is Ray? Ray is your significant other or spouse. Ray is that pet you love like your own child. Ray is your group of girlfriends you can laugh and drink the night away with. Ray is that person, or pet, in your life that you love to spend time with.

My name is Kris Roufa, and I'm the designer behind the brand. I was born a designer, my mother would say. I've been one since I could walk, designing clothes, designing costumes, designing hats, designing bugs then I started an agency designing for others. I owned a design agency for 20 years and in 2019 turned my eye back to my true passion of textiles and surface pattern design and created At Home With Ray.

We've all been spending a lot more time at home this last year and many of us have learned a lot of things about ourselves that we didn't know. We also learned what we're capable of. The stuff we're made of, and how best to prioritize our lives. We learned that we love our homes; home is where you ground yourself, discover yourself and let your guard down. For me, creating in my home is my happy place. It's the best of all worlds. 

So with that, I give you At Home With Ray, where you will find me in the center of my little creative universe surrounded by my loves, making beautiful things for you that are inspired by nature.
