Before I moved to New York I called the South End in Boston home, and even today, it still feels very much like a homey retreat. This is a neighborhood of charming brownstones and my apartment was even nestled on the top floor of one, with a big bay window surrounded by the green canopy of trees, just across the street from the ballet academy. It was something of a dream to live there, and while I don’t get to visit as much as I would like, I’m always glad when I get the chance.
This is Boston, so there is a definite slant towards preppy and nautical inspiration, but I think there’s something for everyone, as there are lots of things I wanted, with my more New York City style, while also finding things to buy for family members, who are decidely more traditional in their styles.
