Hudson {Boston}

January 10, 2008

The stylish Hudson is located in the South End neighborhood of Boston, a historic tree-lined section known for it’s brownstone architecture, excellent restaurants, and cobblestone streets. Though it seems many storefronts remain vacant and are due to be renovated, this gorgeous section of Boston has so much charm that you can only guess that within the next few years, finding a space to open a shop will be next to impossible.

Especially with the help of creative types like owner-designer Jill Goldberg who recently opened Hudson to bring a little west coast style combined with global decor to Boston. With plans to open a second location in nearby Wellesley in April, Goldberg brings a trained eye and a sense of style that is both relaxed and rich in one effortless breathe. Her aesthetic combines ethnic prints with stripes, Madeline Weinrib meets Cape Cod, Shabby Chic, John Robshaw, topped with vintage feed sacks as pillows all in a single shop (Goldberg designs the feed sack pillows herself). Here are a few photos of the store for you to enjoy, but because Jill is like the rest of us and simply must move around furniture constantly, the store always looks different whenever you enter.

With Hudson in town, the new home decor store Grand opening later this month over in Union Square Somerville, and the goals that the city of Boston has to restore Newbury Street back to it’s more independent roots (more privately owned boutiques/less chain stores), and several storefronts sitting vacant in the South End waiting for a little TLC, if you’re looking to give Boston your own unique retail vision why not consider it now? I’d love to see more design come to this fantastic historical city – and with so many of the properties boasting wood floors, soaring ceilings, great architectural details, etc. I’m willing to bet you’d find your perfect spot just like Jill did at the beautiful Hudson.

    Hudson looks like a very beautiful place to go bankrupt! So nice to see the emphasis on independent merchants as opposed to chains.

    And Grand looks like it’s gonna be pretty spectacular. Will be watching that progress.

    I gotta get out and visit Boston again, huh?

    Not sure if it’s still the case, but as of a couple weeks ago, Hudson is hiring.

    Just taking a moment to brag–my boyfriend is one of the contractors working on the Grand. It looks beautiful and I can’t wait until it opens!

    I LOVE Hudson. The South End has some great stores…and I’m glad to hear Newbury is going back to its roots!
