Ever pop into a store and feel immediately at home? That's just the vibe you'll get at Follain
, a new all-natural skin care boutique in Boston's South End. Bright, airy, and full of soothing greenery, the shop is exactly what I'd like my bathroom to look like—think modern apothecary meets urban greenhouse—thanks to white subway tiles and blond-wood shelving. (Photo courtesy of Follain)
I'm loving that rustic farmhouse sink and the little julep cups of succulents that crop up here and there. And how cute is that galvanized tin bucket in the corner?(Photo courtesy of Follain)
In addition to her favorite skin care lines (Dr. Alkaitis, Earth Tu Face, and local brand Shamanuti, to name a few), beauty blogger Tara Foley
also sells covetable gifts like Saipua's artfully wrapped soaps and sisal washcloths from Baudelaire. All this in a space peppered with antiques from the Brimfield Antique Show. Consider us inspired.
