We wouldn't be so eager to hit the snooze button if we had this delightful breakfast nook filled with wit and charm to welcome us each morning. This room is all about the juxtaposition of the pieces in it. We have polkadots, stripes, watercolor florals and a geometric motif all mixed with the kooky Fornasetti wall plates. Even though we have lots of different patterns going on here, it all works because of the calm color palette. That's worth getting up a little extra early!

We're big fans of a highly functional entryway. The key is in creating a landing strip to hold and organize your things when you arrive home. Essentially you'll need a place for your keys, mail and change, a place to hang your coat, a seat to take off your shoes and a mirror if you want to be fancy. The tray is the workhorse here, it can be used for keys, mail and loose change or any one of those things. You can also use a bowl or even a trinket dish if you are a disciplined minimalist and have less stuff in your pockets... In which case, you probably don't need somebody telling you how to be organized.
Here's a roundup of some of our favorites for those of us *ahem* who need a bit more help. I fondly refer to those people as maximalists.

This is a public service announcement:
Mothers are amazing. Flowers are amazing.
Giving your mother beautiful flowers on Mother's Day is not cliché.
It is a lovely gesture and she will love them. A lot.
Our design firm is chock-full of mothers. We all love flowers.
If you have a mother, have made somebody into a mother or even know a mother, buy her some flowers.
It's the right thing to do.
*All flowers by Tulipina. You can even order them online.*
