Hello sweet reader! The blog is back! I pressed the pause button for the past several months to devote my full attention towards the opening of our first brick & mortar FarmHouseUrban Home Store! We opened in September and while there have definitely been a few ‘learning curve moments’ the entire experience has been an absolute joy.  In addition, our online store is up and running and packed with beautiful pieces to enhance your homes. The link is at the bottom of the post…

Owning a retail store was never in my plan AT ALL! Go figure how the universe is still working in your favor even when you are not “manifesting”?! But, now that it’s here and where I spend most of my time, I could not imagine a more ideal scenario. Since I was the first occupant of the space, the store was a blank canvas – literally white walls and a concrete floor. Things like what kinds of display pieces would be best, what to sell, and how to merchandise were new concepts. Different from designing interiors, but equally fun. Everyday we move things around and mix it up.

FarmHouseUrban Home Store
After trying out a few different shaped tables, this round one with customizable dimensions felt like the best fit.
FarmHouseUrban Home Store - surfer photographs
The photographs were taken by a Marin photographer at Stinson and Bolinas – two local beaches. Thick, beautifully sewn linen napkins in white and three shades of gray – all you need.
Rattan arm chair with tropical pillow
I’m so in love with this chair – timeless, sturdy and sooo comfy. When the tropical print pillows from Australia arrived the same day…. it was a match made in heaven.
FarmHouseUrban - dinnerware
When we first opened, I started with a small selection of dinnerware. They’re made in a factory in Portugal that has been making gorgeous tableware for over 100 years (dishwasher, microwave, oven and freezer safe, too). They quickly became our best selling items. I feel strongly that luxury items that are beautiful, timeless and made well, need not be expensive. We’ve expanded these three stunning collections to include more options for your table’s fabulousness.
FarmHouseUrban Home Store - serving pieces.
One of the most exciting parts of having a store is connecting with artists who make gorgeous one-of-a-kind creations. These pottery trays are only available in our store in Mill Valley. I especially adore the little dish that looks like a robins egg.
FarmHouseUrban Home Store - glassware
Glassware seemed like a good addition since dinnerware has been so popular. I found these etched glasses and was so smitten. What is especially great (besides the fact they are lead free and made in Poland) is that they are equally happy filled with a martini, champagne or ice cream.

The store is in Mill Valley, CA – a hop, skip and a jump over the Golden Gate Bridge – about 15 mins north of San Francisco. Visit us!

Our new website is also live and where you will find many of the pieces above. We will be continuously updating the online shop with new products, so please check in regularly. Find us at www.shopfarmhouseurban.com. We ship!

It’s nice to be back to connecting with you here. I’ve so missed you…
