Breakfast: the most important meal of the day! Here's how to do it right, from architectural dining nooks to gadgets geared towards making your morning pour as painless as possible.
On a shady street just off the main drag of Melbourne, Australia’s hippest inner suburb, a pair of creative types and their two kids have made a bright, cheery home by renovating an 1860s stable.

Juice shops are the latest big city fad—you can always find a bottle in the Dwell office—but for those who don’t want to shell out $2 per ounce, consider this Bodum number. The Bistro Citrus Juicer comes in six bright shades and sits higher than most juicers, so its drip-stop keeps the juice from dripping all over your kitchen counter. A cyclone function prevents the pulp from going awry. Made from plastic, silicone, and stainless steel.
