Mr. F&F and I have changed venues but we’re still working, summertime workin, that is. Exhibit A.
I started the retail part of my business to encourage people to think more about reuse, but also to look at shopping beyond the big box stores. In my city of Raleigh I’d like to think that no designer needs to go to High Point to decorate for their client, or that consumers can...Read More
Some shots of opening day…grand opening with ribbon cutting on June 1st…details to follow…
More store happenings part three. Few words, only pictures. Me tired but happy. Did I mention that we might actually open before June 1st? Is that not amazing? F&F is very close and we will keep you posted. But, for now, pictures…
We are getting closer.
Bust a move…that’s what we’ve been doing around F&F. We’ve been working hard to create “rooms” around the store that will retain their names but with the addition of new merchandise weekly. Here’s another glimpse...Read More
All store, all the time makes for random posts. Today was a crazy, jumbled mixed-up day. Perhaps a snapshot into the day in the life of a store owner? A bit of miscellany for you.

Thought I’d give a sneaky-peeky at the coming Form and Function Raleigh Store! Big announcement: We have a space and we open June 1st. Never in my wildest dreams.

The season has begun and Mr. F&F and I began this past weekend with a wine tasting, the kick-off for our...Read More
As soon as the cool weather hits I feel inspired to get some fall projects done. The bathroom reno spilled over into the bedroom which received a fresh coat of paint, trim added to existing curtains, and new bedding. Our inherited 1920s furniture suite seemed weary but had great bones and included...Read More
This master bath renovation has me in a tizzy, making me want to change everything in the house right this very minute.
Decided to swap out some artwork over the sofa (which is M.I.A. at the upholsterer’s right now, getting swathed in a beautiful blue velvet) as an easy update...Read More
And more client work continues….
Loved working in this house, a 1980s gem that my clients renovated and where I helped with paint, fabric decisions and our signature service, a redesign day.
They updated this modern home, keeping the original kitchen cabinets and adding only...Read More
After a year and a half in this little sideline business of mine, I’ve learned a lot.
My new antiques booth prompted me to think about what mostly sells: functional furniture, lamps, etchings, vintage prints and paintings, lamps, and small decorative items. And what...Read More
