Store Director Hilary’s Favorite Boston Spots
Our South End location in Boston was the first-ever Follain store to open. It was a labor of love, as founder and CEO Tara Foley worked on all aspects of the store and even hand painted the walls. The store officially opened for business in 2013 and since then, it’s become a staple of the neighborhood, which is known for its small businesses. Here, Store Director Hilary Falcon dishes on her favorite places in the South End and beyond.
Hilary is an inspiration seeker, passionate about creative expression in photography and interior design. Creating health and wellness rituals is also important to her: She loves cooking, brewing herbal teas, diffusing essential oils at home, and setting aside time to take a bath, light candles, and put her phone away. She strives to cultivate peace and beauty in every facet of her life.
Favorite Places in Boston
“I’ve been practicing yoga for nearly 15 years, and when I’m not in my at-home studio space, I’m taking classes with Down Under’s Gregor Singleton to calm and reset.”
“It’s no secret I visit this European-style gourmet food shop nearly every day. It carries all of my favorite indulgences, from artisanal cheeses and wine to small batch jams, pastas and chocolates.”
“I love living next to this wide-open space with epic sunset views. There’s nothing like a walk and a beautiful sunset to clear my head.”
“Don Carney and John Ross’ textile designs, prints, and homewares are consistently striking and original. I’ve been visiting the design duo’s shop in the South End for years.”
“I used to work in fashion and appreciate Lisa Cancelli’s sharp edit.”
“Sauntering through the plant and light-filled courtyard of a world-renowned art collector never gets old.”
