Decorative white bread bin biscuit jar

Decorative bread storage

This lovely Verdant bread bin is made from white clay and is decorated all over in a filigree leaf design. It’s as much a decorative piece for your kitchen as it a practical storage item.

Although it’s designed for storing bread in, it could alternatively be used as a biscuit jar.

Admittedly, this is quite pricey for a bread bin (£128, eek!) – but as an added bonus, you get two useful products in one, as the olive wood lid doubles up as a bread board.

The Verdant bread bin can be purchased from Anthropologie.

Olive wood chopping board

Natural olive wood board

Olive wood is said to be the ideal wood choice for chopping boards, as the natural oil in the wood can kill off bacteria.

Another major bonus is that olive wood products, such as this one, are often creatively carved to show off the natural grain of the wood, making it decorative as well as practical.

This particular chopping board - which can also double up as a cheese board – is hand carved from a single piece of wood and measures about 40cm by 20cm.

No two are exactly the same and the slightly wonky edges and unusual shapes add even more character.

The board is finished off with wax and oil and is available from Natural Med on Amazon, for £16.99.
