“It takes willpower to do nothing.” So says Matthew Malin, half of the skincare duo (in business and life) Malin + Goetz. Last week, the NY Times did a tour of the 1800’s Kinderhook farmhouse Andrew Goetz and Matthew Malin purchased in March.
I like that they don’t “spend their weekends decorating.” They read, nap, and have dinner at the neighbors’.
I remember accidentally discovering their Chelsea shop years ago. I think they had just opened. I bought some moisturizer for me and shaving cream for Anuj. There was a big, friendly bulldog at the shop door accepting compliments and scratches from everyone who entered.
I love the packaging of their products. All white with simple, brightly colored lettering.
Btw, I think we share a lawn caretaker with Malin and Goetz. And yes, the quotes can be jaw dropping.
