Sinks, much like desks and purse contents, are quite telling of their owners. A sink is often the last place we visit at night before bed, and the first spot approached come morning. Its accessories—however carefully curated—are basic daily staples, and therefore a sense of realness of even the most glamorous personalities. From Marvis, to Tom’s, to classic Crest or Colgate, there’s something so interesting (really!) about learning a person’s toothpaste of choice. Adorned with framed photos, smattered with lipsticks and foundation bottles, or simply sparse, personality filters through sink-space. Whether cotton balls and Q-Tips are left in their original packaging or carefully re-housed in apothecary jars says something, doesn't it? Sink styles themselves are telling too, but as renters’ basins are most often the luck of the draw, sink style becomes more about what you do (or don’t do) with what you’ve got.

    Very envious of the Aurel Schmidt drawing that Lauren Santo Domingo keeps on her vanity.

    I never envied a sink or someone with a nice sink, but now I am envying a sink and people with nice ones.

    I think for me the visual cleanliness of them is what is most enviable! I share a sink with two younger brothers, so my standards are also probably pretty low!

    I love the julep cup!

Dearest ITG Reader,

We're working on something new called Glossier. It's launching soon(!) and we want you to be the first to know updates.
