The ultimate guide to feel good (and not go crazy) at home


Since the world is in shelter-in-place mode, AMV Journal put together a survival kit right here to help get you through these strange times. On the programme: colouring pages to download by artist Caroline Laguerre, pasta recipes on Instagram, cosy clothing, a mood-lifting playlist, inspiring accounts to follow on social networks and images that make you want to throw open your windows.

Colouring pages by Caroline Laguerre to download

Her colourful drawings and canvases are sure to lift your spirits. After we met her several weeks ago (her interview with AMV Journal is here), Caroline Laguerre made three black-and-white drawings that you can colour in all by yourself.

Download them free of charge by clicking on this Google Drive link and share the results on your social networks. Remember to tag @caroline.laguerre and @americanvintage_officiel.
