Peace and quiet are as essential to the writer as a computer or a pen and paper. While you can buy the latter at a store, getting your hands on the former isn’t always so easy. TRIAS, an architecture studio based in Sydney, has a solution for those in Wales. The Slate Cabin is a single room structure that boasts an exterior made predominantly of slate, which is found throughout the mountains around the escape hut. The slabs of slate are arranged like shingles, giving the cabin a roof-like look, and the interior is composed of light birch plywood, contrasting the exterior in an eye-pleasing way. The interior is sparse and clean, offering the person trying to write a bit of calm in their life. It sure beats a noisy office or a chatty coffee shop.

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.
