A very royal “clapper”

So I am sure everyone remembers the 80’s pheno, “The Clapper.” Clap once to turn the lights on, clap again to turn them off.
Well here is a new version that is completely up my alley

Designed by Materious, I think it would be perfect next to the couch in the Apothic. I wish it came in black.

We got style in the “bag”

I love a good bag, and I love using a good bag for many purposes. San Francisco designer Grant Gibson has found a creative storage solution in his bathroom using a LLBean boat tote (monogramed of course)
We use these all over the Royal Apothic Studios for holding fabric swatches and magazines and I keep a few in the trunk of my car for groceries. The canvas works to help keep frozens cold and the monogram adds serious shopping style.

And although I am not one for laundry, (In fact, I cant remember the last time I did some,) this doesnt mean that my worn clothes are not housed in style. Here are some seriously stylish options for your dirty clothes.
