Observatory boutique an ode to lovely design

Vintage décor, jewelry, and flowers mingle at a neighborhood boutique

Two gorgeously artistic women — jewelry designer Nicole Rueda-Watts and floral designer Laura Jean — have come together to create an ode to all that is beautiful at Observatory. Nestled among a handful of other retail gems, the boutique opened quietly last year and is flourishing. Offerings include locally designed, handmade jewelry, including pieces by Rueda-Watts, fresh flowers and plants hand-picked by Jean, and vintage home furnishings, like this exotic, circa 1940s green glass lantern with cast metal details. Observatory, 270 Concord Ave., Cambridge, 617-645-0648.
