Happy Tuesday! I’m back with a new Small Business Spotlight post this morning, and I wanted to share someone I really admire… Kennesha Poe-Buycks. She’s a creative, author, has an amazing eye for design, and she launched her shop, Restoration House Shop, around the same time I launched Tuesday Made. We’ve been friends on Instagram for quite awhile and she has always been such a positive account I admire. It has been fun to cheer each other on, and I think you’re going to love her style & shop- if you aren’t already familiar with it. Her aesthetic is cozy, warm, inviting, rustic, vintage, and timeless. She styles and layers so well, and I thought it would be fun to share some of my current favorites from her shop, all of which would pair well with any aesthetic. Click through for my picks, for some beautiful inspiration, and to share some love for my friend Kennesha.
I really enjoy how Kennesha styles natural, organic, and neutral materials throughout her home. Her look is neutral- but never boring. She integrates vintage pieces throughout and it’s always inspiring to see how they seamlessly blend with the new or modern elements. It’s a stunning juxtaposition that feels very classic.
Her tablescape images have frequented my inspiration boards, and I’ve pinned many of her vignettes over the years. Since launching her shop (which contains all things vintage), I’ve loved seeing what treasures she lists to share with fellow design enthusiasts. Like all good vintage objects, I had my eye on a few pieces that sold before I could hit the buy button.
Ready to see some of my personal picks? Kennesha finds the best crocks! My Dad actually used to collect these, and it makes me wish I would’ve saved them. After he passed, I didn’t have a home of my own at the time, and I ended up giving most of them away due to lack of space. Seeing her styling makes me wish I would’ve invested in a storage unit so I could display them as beautifully as she does.

Everything in the Restoration House Shop is vintage. From kitchen linens and crocks to vintage artwork, there are plenty of treasures to be found. I’ll also repeat the sentiments I share in every Small Business post… remember- you don’t have to make a purchase to support a small business! As a small business and shop owner, believe me when I say- every like, follow, comment, save, pin, word of mouth referral, and message counts. We celebrate ALL the victories, no matter the size! If you also appreciate Kennesha’s style, give her shop a follow. Trust me when I say, you’ll want those notifications when she lists the vintage goods.
Kennesha also released a book that is one of my favorites for the coffee table… you can grab a signed copy in her shop! The design concept is about creating a home that gives life and connection to all who enter- the warmth of her home styling really shines through. I’ve always thought her aesthetic felt particularly welcoming.
Is there a small home decor or interior business you love? How about an artist, maker, or designer? Please let me know in the comment section so I can add them to the feature list. I would love to be able to show my support for small business owners here on the blog, share newly discovered online shops, and continue to spread the small business love! These posts are really fun for me.
I hope your week is going well so far! I’m still playing catch up from vacation, but I promise to finish responding to comments tonight! I’ve read all of them and love hearing your thoughts. My favorite part of blogging is always chatting with you. Thanks for being patient while I was away and am catching up. Y’all are the best!
