Design crew

Got a problem? Need some help? Just stand there shaking your head? Don't know what to do? You're not alone. Send us a link to photos of your design quandary and let the Desire to Inspire design crew help you .... that's you lot ... the readers .... get to it! You did such a good job the last couple of weeks I know you can do it all over again. Besides I have a Saturday to enjoy.

"I am needing ideas for window treatments. I live in a townhouse without a lot of character except it has great windows that allow lots of light. But I also need privacy! so letting them be bare is not an option. I inherited custom made shades accordion kind made of some sort of felt like material?? do not know but they have to stay for a long while. I have two very large cathedral style windows and two windows that flank a faux wood burning stove on the outside wall . This wall also has a cathedral window it is the smaller one . I am not one for matchy match . I hung cream voile curtains that puddle to the floor on the two the cathedral windows . I was trying to come up with an idea for the other two windows that are much smaller that measure 32.5 x 62.5. Any ideas would be appreciated. I adore this blog and drool over the beautiful spaces ... I have attached pic's hope these are adequate.  I also attached photos of the yellow chairs I want to reupholster.  I can't make up my mind on fabric.  Any feedback would be appreciated." - Wendy

Here's a taste of what Wendy has achieved so far. It's shaping up to be a lovely room. After the jump you'll see the problem with the room. She REALLY needs your help ;)

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!)

Hello!

Yes Vaucluse, Sydney house you had me at hello. You are fun and family orientated, perfectly positioned with a view that is just so sweet! Summer rooms and winter hang outs. Timber clad ceilings and too cool pool. If only you could be mine! I've stalked you. Perhaps I could woo you? No? OK I'll just take your boathouse then. Yes? Maybe? No? Link to this fab home here while it lasts.

Too much?

I am a huge fan of industrial touches in a home....but sometimes people should quit while they're ahead. I found this apartment on a site from Israel called bvd, and while I love some of the finishes, all in all it's pretty much a prison cell, but a bit larger. I'm sure there are some men out there who are saying "WOW - that's COOL!!" but I'm sure that sentiment would be short-lived after living here for a while. Your thoughts?

Riad Enija

In a far away land, in a secret world of beauty, exotic luxury awaits.  A sigh has just escaped my lips. A dream, a fantasy. A reality for a special few. If I found a genie in a lamp and set him free I would want just one wish.  Riad Enija via Welcome Beyond.
