What do you create in this space: Pastries & naturally leavened breads.
Favorite part about your space: My boos table.
Where did you draw inspiration: Well, I was furloughed when the pandemic started last year. As a Capricorn, I couldn’t sit still for long. So I started baking from home and delivering all around town. In a way being left without a job really fueled me to build something of my own.
Best way to enjoy this space: I really enjoy mornings here. I sit on the stool to have breakfast on my boos table. I love catching the morning sun here.
If you had to pick one, what design element stands out as your favorite? Boos table, it gives the room a fresh bakery feel!
Give it to us straight, what’s still in-progress about your space? I need a commercial oven hahaha which probably won’t be happening in this space because it doesn’t fit!
In your book, what makes a space beautiful: It’s all about what is created and the magic that comes out of it.
What item can’t you live without: Food scale
What makes this space feel like home to you: The fact that I made this space happen. What was an ordinary dining area has been converted into a tiny micro bakery.
