Isaac & Florence’s wabi-sabi apartment

Posted by on 23 avril 2014 in Dwellings | No Comments

wabi-sabi-apartment_boatpeoplevintage05 Isaac and Florence’s apartment in Montreal is one of kind little den. Truthful to the wabi-sabi aesthetics, most of the furniture is recycled or repurposed and the imperfections are cherished rather than hidden, giving the place so much of its character and uniqueness. Coming through Montreal this summer? Isaac and Florence’s place is up for rent!

Spring drink: Jasmine Lavender Latte

Posted by on 20 avril 2014 in À table | No Comments

jasmine-lavender-latte_Boatpeoplevintage05 If you follow us regularly, you probably know by now that I’m pretty obsessed with lavender. I can’t help it, it just agrees too well with my palate. Put aside that harmony, nothing better than an herbal drink to celebrate the arrival of spring! Drank warm or cold, the Jasmine Lavender Latte is just exquisite!


  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk of your choice
  • 1 tbs jasmine tea (loose pearls)
  • 2 tbs lavender buds
  • sweetener of your choice

Makes one large cup or two small ones to be shared with a friend ♥

jasmine-lavender-latte_Boatpeoplevintage06 Heat the water bringing it just to a boil. Avoid overheating the water because it will burn the leaves (bitter taste) instead of infusing them.

jasmine-lavender-latte_Boatpeoplevintage01 In a tea infuser, add the jasmine and the lavender and dunk in hot water for about 3-4 min. If some leaves come out of the infuser, you can use a strainer to get rid of them.
