WHO With twenty-seven years of interior design experience, Mary Tobias Miller knew exactly what she wanted when she opened her first home boutique in Charlotte in May. "I was trying to find things I had a hard time finding as a designer," says Miller, whose South End-based shop boasts items such as antique French furnishings and contemporary glass lamps.

VIBE Inviting vignettes make for a relaxing retail experience. Curl up on one of the chocolate-hued linen chairs by Carr & Company ($2,200) or check out the simple framed botanicals by South Carolina artist Becky Davis (starting at $225).

SPEND From an elegant desk with limed oak finish ($500) to a weathered iron antique lamp with a rectangular shade ($495), Miller made it easy to update your home without emptying your wallet. Miller also offers design services by appointment.
