Easygoing, Nautical New England Style in Boston — House Tour

Name: Philip Saul and his cat, Toby
Location: South End; Boston, Massachusetts
Years lived in: 8 years; Rented

For Philip Saul, his South End apartment boasts two major advantages: the incredible amount of natural light his large south-facing windows offer, and the ridiculously short commute to his men’s clothing shop, SAULT New England. Much like his brick and mortar store, Philip’s apartment is easygoing, and reflective of his passion for sourcing New England-inflected decor. The high ceilings, expansive windows, and hardwood floors make the space bright and airy while accommodating the “bordering on hoarder” aesthetic with which Philip has infused his apartment.
