Love the simplicity of these bamboo guest toothbrushes by Izola.
Last week the fabulous Paul Octavious stopped by our studio and I couldn’t help but notice his supercool sandals. They are by Clay and Bros and are the most minimal Sandal you could ever buy, made of a parachute cord and a Vibram sole. I wish they had some photos on their site of people wearing them.

@SwissMiss: “How often do you come across a website that makes you jump out of your seat of excitement? I just did: Behomm is a house swap website for
designers and visual artists only. The homes featured on the site are stunning, absolutely breathtaking. I am a big believer in house swaps, we do it every year with ‘friends of friends’ in Switzerland. You know: I stay at your house while you stay at my house.”
@NewYorkTimes: “Trading Places, in Style. Behomm allows its members to trade properties, simultaneously or at different times. No money changes hands, unlike with Airbnb.”

“Forget what you’ve heard about first impressions; it’s the last impressions that count. Last impressions — whether they’re with customer service or a date — are the ones we remember. They’re the ones that keep us coming back. But there’s one kind of final impression that people seem to forget. The email signoff — that line that you write before you type your name — has been all but forgotten. …”
Great read: Second chance for a last impression, by Liz Danzico

Sony’s new LED bulb with an integrated Bluetooth speaker made me look and wonder. I can’t figure out if this is cool or totally absurd. I am weirdly intrigued.
Also, that photo of the couple lovingly smiling at their lamp.
