I was telling a new co-worker of mine the other day that I always forget to keep my eye out for good french decor magazines, and considering this is a bilingual city (Québec is just across the river), there are many french magazines available here. The next day she came to work with a stack of magazines called Décormag to lend me. It's a great magazine out of Montreal and generally caters to folks who don't have thousands of dollars to spend on a light fixture or a chair. In the majority of the photos you can spot pieces from Ikea. I will be checking out this magazine from now on when I see it in stores. (Thanks Helen!)
