Better-View-Blinds

For many people, the perfect place involves at least one room with a view. Being able to look down on the bustling city below, or out at the expansive countryside is great and all, but sooner or later you’re going to want to dim the natural light pouring in from that big ball of fire in the sky. You could go with traditional blinds or curtains because they work, but they don’t do much more than that. If you want something that does its job and looks good in the process, you want these Better View perforated black out blinds from designer Elina Aalto. Instead of just blacking out all possible light, the blinds display views from Paris, Tokyo, Helsinki, Stockholm or Berlin by using perforations to change the light from outside into a lit up cityscape.

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
