Oprah gave full permission for us to co-opt her ‘favorite things’ because calling it a ‘gift guide’ is just not good enough, and frankly inaccurate in its labeling

This New Launch Is Bringing Luxurious Hotel Bathroom Design to the Masses

The second we walk into a beautiful hotel bathroom, we turn into kleptomaniacs. The teensy shampoo bottles; the cloud-like robes; the aromatic soaps—we want it all. The newly opened Shinola Hotel‘s rooms are no different. “People want to bring hotels into their homes,” acknowledges Christine Gachot, who, alongside her husband, John, runs Gachot Studios and led the design of the accommodations. However, the one thing we can never fit into our luggage (and the one thing we want most) is the interior design. Until now. Thanks to a new line from Waterworks, starting on October 21, guests will be able to...
