Decorative dishes
If, in the real world, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, then in the decor world, the dishes it’s presented on merit equal esteem. Here, subtle interest is infused through unique pieces like the ceramic basket and milk carton-shaped creamer, while the mostly white palette offers a clean, fresh start to the day – we don’t want anything too loud or too busy for our early mornings! But whatever you pick, make it something you love. After all, a day that starts in style ends in style. (Is that a saying? well, we think it should be.)
