Rebecca O’Donnell’s Botanical Shop in Hudson, NY

Before she and her household transferred from the city, searching for a slower-paced life, the Australian innovative director’s days were a try of work and travel. “At the time I was fighting with Lyme illness and I required to decrease,” she states. “The concept was to develop an area where I might recover, surrounded by what I like. It was established out of a desire to decrease and listen.”

Hidden down a street, her elegant shop is a covert treasure box with wood panelling, stained glass windows, plasterwork ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling flowers. “Others were not so persuaded,” she states of the off-the-beaten-track area. “However I liked the reality that it was a shop to be found and experienced. A surprise gem of sorts where the aroma of the flowers entices you in from the street.”
