Friday eye candy

When this post publishes I will be madly cleaning house and doing last minute packing for my trip to one of my favourite places on earth (not that I've been to many), Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I worked my arse off to get some posts done to publish while I'm away (11 days - we leave tomorrow morning) so you won't even notice I'm gone. While you're not noticing I'm gone, I thought you'd enjoy some eye candy from one of my favourite magazines that I've mentioned on occasion (here, here and here), Décormag - which happens to be French Canadian. :-) (I saw those chairs above at Beige, and almost bought one for my desk...kicking myself now that I didn't buy a whole set!)

I love the quiet simplicity of the top image. Beautiful!

That all white room is just dreamy!

Isn't Decormag the French version of Style at home with some local content ?

The silver plated ceiling, almost mirror like, is truly one of the most interesting and unique design elements I've seen in a long time.

Have a great trip! Thanks for enabling us DTI addicts to get our fix when you're gone!

These chairs from ballard are really similar as well and probably cheaper than their restoration cousins: http://www.ballarddesigns.com/constance-side-chairs-set-of-2/chairs/dining-chairs/13400

I love the french bistro look of them. Have a wonderful time in PV.

I love photo #6 and if I lived closer to all my friends I would definitely have a kitchen that looked like that!

Want to feel better about not buying those chairs? My friend bought a set and they are really wobbly because of the way the joints are put together with hardware---not a secure feeling for a chair! They are cute to look at, though. ;o)

And what beautiful eye candy it is. I love inspiration/great idea posts. They're my fav.

They are on special at ELTE in Toronto right now in the burnt oak finish for 99$ It is a fantastic price as they go for around
200$ in that finish usually.

good luck

I really need a 'moveable' ceiling lamp similar to the one in the first photo. Does anyone know where I can get that one or something similar to it?

Agnes, that light looks like a Tolomeo suspension lamp
