The Home of.... Moon Juice's Amanda Chantal Bacon

 I don't know how many years ago it was that I heard of Moon Juice, but I am pretty sure it was via Prism of Threads Instagram. Of course the name Moon Juice is what initially caught my eye.

Suffering from really bad depression in my 20's, following a Brain Tumor diagnosis (now gone) I had decided to take matters into my own hands and trust the mantra 'You are what you eat' and became a firm believer the power of Healthy Eating, with juices and smoothies becoming part of my daily routine, but Whereas I thought having a carrot, apple and ginger juice was the height of healthiness, Amanda and her Moon Juice team had crazy ass juices made from Turmeric (Golden Tonic) and Aloe (Enzymatic Aloe Tonic) and as sadly they didn't ship to the UK I became inspired to make my own.

 Amanda Chantal Bacon is the founder of Moon Juice, an ever growing business that started In Venice, California as a juice bar but now sells Juices, Moon milks, tonics, Zen Bunni Incense, and apothecary and has numerous shops and an online store. Amanda herself is a radiant young single mother from New York who moved to LA to work in the food business,  then as a Food and Wine assistant editor for The Los Angeles Times.

 Amanda decided to return to the hands on world of food and Opened Moon Juice in January 2012, four days before she found out she was pregnant... though hard work and passion Moon Juice has become a huge success however her beautiful home is still humble and unfancy (although that is an $8,000 Anfibio sofa).

I love the huge windows looking out onto the slightly wild garden and high ceilings. This is a really beautiful natural home. Although painted white, there are just enough pops of colour and organic textures to keep the place feeling warm and homely..
