One of our all-time-favorite projects is the Lake Huron cabin of Juli and John Baker, the owners of Toronto housewares shop Mjölk. The kitchen, designed with architects Studio Junction, is a harmonious blend of pine, soapstone, brass, and Scandi kitchen accessories. Here, Juli and John have kindly shared their sources—from the floor finish to the vintage tea kettle.

The Kitchen

Studio Junction designed the cabinets and countertops with Carolina pine finished in a lye wash and beeswax coating.
