At home with Ottoman Hands

With the world around us looking very different to what it did just a few weeks ago, we wanted to offer you a little dose of weekly inspirations. We hope you enjoy!..Three ways we are planning to celebrate spring this week.

1. Watch an inspiring movie

Big Fish by Tim Burton

A personal favourite - Big Fish by Tim Burton - a fantastic fable about a dreamer who sees the world's hidden beauty... His name? ... Will Bloom.

2. Pastellize your nails

Pastellize your nails

We all have this drawer with nail polishes we only used once... now is your time to use them all at once. Inspired by Melanie Licht.

3. Make yourself a drink

Peaches and Lavender Lemonade


1 tablespoon of dried lavender flowers

2 lemons, juices and zested

5 tablespoons of agave syrup

5 cups of water

1 peach, cut into 6 slices

How to make it

Put the lavender flowers in a bowl and pour 1 cup of boiling water over it.

Add the agave syrup and let it to steep for 20 minutes.

Strain the lavender and transfer the liquid into a pitcher.

Add in the pitcher the juice and zest of two lemons, the slices peach and 4 cups of cold water.

You can sip and cheers with your friends in your Google Hangout party =).

A special bonus...

We think art not only brings beauty to the world, but soothes and makes everything a little more vibrant and a lot more fun. We have created our own colouring in Mandala, inspired, by your favourite jewels. We hope you like it as much as we do! Click here to download printable PDF version.
