Photos by Jasmin DosanjAnother reason to head to downtown Kelowna? Lakehouse, a 4000 sq ft contemporary home and kitchen store newly opened at 510 Bernard Street, at the corner of Ellis Street. Local owners, and equally passionate about design, Sue and Ben Boschman have created a lifestyle store for the home with the kitchen as the central focus. After all, most home entertaining parties begin and end in the kitchen.Both amateur and professional cooks will delight in the large kitchen section, with classics such as Le Creuset, Emile Henry and Kitchen Aid in the hottest new colors ranging from teal blue to raspberry ice. Find trends of the moment including Nespresso coffee machines (all the rage in Europe and sweeping North America) as well as the environmentally friendly Soda Stream which will turn your tap water into a sparkling sensation with a push of a button. Staples such as All-Clad pots and pans and Bamix immersion blenders accompany hot design items including Dualit’s Vario toaster, Claude, the Cookbook companion and TWG Teapots. Lakehouse is well-stocked with a good selection of knives from Henckels and Wusthof and carries the excellent Boos Chopping blocks. Kitchen aficionados will enjoy the large selection of useful and well-designed kitchen gadgets ranging from simple spoons, to must-have kitchen tongs and deluxe microplane graters and zesters.Wine lovers will appreciate the classic decanters, along with the Oprah must-have Vinturi Wine Aerator for the glass or the locally made Nuance Wine Finer Aerator for the bottle. Beautiful wine glasses include the Riedel “O” stemless tumblers (perfect for the patio) and a good selection of both vintage and modern wine openers.Interior view of LakehouseUpdate your home with contemporary and comfortable home furnishings including sofas, coffee tables and dining room sets.. Plates, cutlery, table-linens and a gourmet selection of crackers and spreads make entertaining a breeze. Friendly and knowledgeable staff will help you find unique gifts for every budget and occasion. My tip? Don’t miss the wonderful eco-conscious African Market Baskets, contributing to healthcare and education in village co-ops in Ghana and are perfect for shopping at the Kelowna’s Farmer market.If your home is your haven, and you love to cook or entertain, Lakehouse is a must destination. 510 Bernard Street.
