Beacon Hill, Boston
When New-England Feels Like The Original
During our recent design stay in Boston, we took time to visit the famous historical neighborhood of Beacon Hill. What a great feeling it is to walk through the narrow streets lined with gas lamps and Federal style brick row houses showcasing wood doors of vivid colors and balconies with decorative iron work and colorful flowers. At certain points, it feels like walking through Victorian London.
Door to door
It is impossible to restrain oneself from photographing the beautiful and colorful wood doors that punctuate the walk through the neighborhood.
À la carte
After hours of crisscrossing through the streets, we stoped and rested at No. 9 Park, one of Boston’s best tables. The chef Barbara Lynch has concocted a fine French cuisine menu with the simplicity and freshness of the ingredients. The space, located in an elegant brick house facing the Boston Common Park, is refined and elegant. We just loved our dining experience!
Shop, shop, Shopping
In addition to the charm of its streets, the neighborhood offers a nice selection of shops and boutiques, namely along Charles Street.
We easily spent a few hours going in and out of stores. We found many gifts and little treasures shopping for apparel, books, objects, and antiques to decorate our home.
