Wood | The family edit

baking-spoon-sustainable-beech=wood=baking-homeofjuniper

I have always loved wood. I think I may have mentioned this before. A few times. Which is partly why we were excited when this wonderful, family run company decided to join us. Not only is it run by a family in Wales, they also work with families across Europe. There beautiful wood products are made from sustainable sourced wood. Currently Home of Juniper stock their Beech (shown in the image above, this lovely light wood looks beautiful in a kitchen) and Cherry wood products but we have our eye on a few other pieces we will plan on introducing in autumn. Another lovely thing about these kitchen and dining products is that they are affordable, prices start at 95p. This means you don’t feel guilty buying them for yourself. They also make gorgeous gifts for someone who loves to cook or bake, either single products or gift sets. Remember if you ever want us to mix and match products into a gift set to just email us (lajuniper@outlook.com) Read more

The fact they are handmade means that each piece is unique and special. We spoke to Lynn about how she makes these gorgeous jugs, mugs, and bowls; and where she gets her inspiration from. Here is what she had to say:

Concrete.


Concrete is back. Invented in the nineteenth century, it reached new design heights in the 60s. High polished concrete was used as flooring, buildings were built with concrete used not only as a useful material, but also a design …. I have to be honest, I have never been a fan of this trend. I have alway preferred brick or stone covered houses, and wood flooring. I grew up disliking these towering concrete blocks. But concrete is once again becoming synonymous with contemporary design, architecture and interiors, and this time I like a lot of what I see. Read more

Lemons & Lemonade

Summer has always linked in my head with lemons and lemonade. Homemade lemonade; not the fizzy type, the refreshing, tastes healthy- but has too much sugar in it to actually be healthy- type. Lemon sorbet. Lemon drizzle cake… and (picked up from travels in Africa) my favourite gin based cocktail. Basically, I am using the excuse of having a new lemon squeezer on the website to share a few of my favourite food and drink recipes with you all. I hope you enjoy. Read more
