Hot Pink sells interior design pieces, boutique gifts and a selection of accessories in an environment meant to represent a friendly hometown spirit.

Owner Mary Frank Miller said she selects the items in the store for their quality, price and ability to stand out.

“There is no rhyme or reason,” Miller said. “The only thing I can tell you is that both of my parents had extremely good eyes—[they] could just look at something and ... know—and I will tell you I don’t always get it right.”

In the middle of the store, located at 231 Franklin Road, Brentwood, there is a couch with throw pillows emblazoned with decorative script. Customers can also find a selection of books, toys, candles and decorative plates. Miller said she wants customers to feel the store has a “sweet spirit.”

“I want [customers] to feel like they feel good in that store, that it’s a good place,” she said. “We’re not LifeWay. We don’t bill ourselves as a Christian store—everything we carry doesn’t have a verse on it, but I’d like for people to take that with them when they leave.”

Miller took over the Brentwood boutique, located in Hill Center Brentwood next to Puffy Muffin, from its previous owner in December 2011. She said she wanted to preserve the store’s charm when she first arrived.

“I didn’t want anybody to even know that it had sold because it had been so successful for her, and she had done such a good job,” Miller said. “I didn’t want to mess up what she had done.”

The boutique carries gifts for many occasions, including bridal showers, baby showers, housewarmings and more.

Miller said the goal of the store is to give shoppers a welcoming experience in Brentwood’s boutique scene.

“It’s a bit of the feel of the way it used to be, hopefully all the good of how it used to be,” she said.
