A modest stucco façade belies the trove of eclectic, upscale wares that wait inside Motto Boutique’s three-story expanse. Co-owners Maria Walker and Maryn Bulygo channeled a west coast vibe when designing their airy store, which looks more like an effortlessly chic home than a typical boutique. Paintings, photos, and gilded mirrors line pristine white walls that abut sleek wooden furnishings and display cases filled with jewelry. Upstairs, racks of men’s flannel shirts and women’s dresses share space with stacks of denim piled high atop glass tables. Known as “The Attic,” the boutique’s topmost floor houses sale items, past season's fashions, and the discounted bones of dead presidents.
