Neighborhood of the Week: Boston's South End

Advertisement - Continue Reading Below

Boston's trendy South End has undergone a transformation in recent years, going from gritty to urbane; rough to polished. Always notable for its charming red brick row houses and scenic green parks, today the district is equally famous for fine restaurants, art galleries (not to mention the Boston Center for the Arts) and some truly stellar shopping. This is definitely the 'hood to visit if you're in the market for unique home décor. The aesthetic options run the gamut: For fans of the sleek and modern, Lekker Home specializes in Scandinavian housewares that display an ingenious mix of purity and function. For folks who live by the saying that "your home is your sanctuary," Devi Home's home furnishings—including stone Buddha's, rich textiles and armoires hand-painted in Tibet—are all drawn from the East, and boast a mystical, meditative quality. And for seekers of something cozy, but with a definitely modern twist, Hudson has nailed the look of casual elegance-meets-vintage antique-meets modern glam.
