Sponsor Welcome: Hudson Boston

I have long frequented Hudson, my most favorite home shop in Boston, not only for myself and my clients. Jill Goldberg, the shop’s owner and interior designer, has THE most impeccable taste.  Her store installations, changed seasonally, are always so perfectly spot on I end up leaving a visit to the shop with lots of ideas and desires for my own space.  So when they asked to become an EOS sponsor I was super thrilled, a more natural fit than this I cannot think of!  Here are some shot of the store’s spring look…

And here are some of my current favorites in the shop (you can shop online as well, but if and when you are in Boston’s South End you NEED to go!)

I also saw these new pillows on their Instagram and LOOOOOOOVE them.  The gold zipper detail is perfection, no?

Design Crush: Nina Farmer Interiors

When I quickly perused the new House Beautiful I stopped when I saw one particular spread. I looked closer and found out that the home I was admiring was not only in Boston’s Beacon Hill but the designer was too!  Nina Farmer’s own home is a really interesting mix of modern, traditional and personal. And when I went on her site to peruse her portfolio I found many, many more examples of her amazing work!

Parts of the HB spread (isn’t this first image arresting?)

HB 1

Ahh, the amazing interior architecture of historic Boston brownstones- such an fabulous canvas on which to work! How I crave high ceilings like this!

HB 2

I ADORE ADORE this office space in her kitchen- particularly that rug and those coral peonies! Oh my!

HB 6

I mean…this kitchen. With those windows. And that stove? Can you even?

HB 5

BAM- yup, that’s a skylight with a vintage sputnik light fixture hanging from it.

HB 3

A closer look. My my my.

P-Slide-2

Her dramatic and moody bedroom swathed in grasscloth with a Room & Board four poster bed.

HB 10

See more of her portfolio after the jump!

A Winning Inn

I love a good boutique inn and was delighted to see these images of a new one in my neck of the woods (kind of) called the Inn at Hastings Park in Lexington, MA.  The decor is modern Americana reflecting the historical town, with each room decorated a bit differently. Take a peek at the cute rooms and details:
