This oversize desk blotter, vibrant in a green chevron pattern with pink details, offers plenty of room for jotting down notes and appointments. And by personalizing it, you can be sure no one will ever confuse it with his or her own calendar. After practicing law for nearly twelve years, Maria Kalorides decided to focus more on her creative talents, in particular her knack for designing stationery. She created her first handmade cards in her New York City galley kitchen, but in 2007 she convinced her husband and her closest friend to join her in launching Milo Paper. Today the company makes contemporary stationery that marries elegance and fun for stores in the United States and overseas.
