Canadian Home and Country Magazine ~ A Love Story

I am in love with this magazine. Have you ever come across one that has absolutely everything you are looking for? The colours you love, the designers you follow like celebrity stalkers? Canadian Home and Country is like that for me. The colour combinations really draw me in. Like the chair above and the armoire below. Did you see that gorgeous carpet?
This next one is from the home of Nikki Renshaw.

Don't these colours just soothe you?


I love the footstool. And the lamp. And the cushions. Well, I just love all of it, really.




What a delightful workspace.

Who doesn't love daybeds to drink tea, read and contemplate?




Oooh, eiderdowns, yum.





My dream potting bench.








I love the red and pale green combination.




Well how gorgeous is that table and chandelier?



And they give a source guide in the back so you can purchase all the lovely items.


And wonderful tips on laundry, storage, cookery...


What's not to love?

Wow, love it all. Don't suppose I can get that mag here in Georgia, do you? I'll have to check it out at one of our mega book stores.

Love the ball fringe on the sofa pillows. I'm jonesin' to put ball fringe on something and I think it will be the curtain I'm making for our "ken." Thanks for the pictures . . . pure inspiration!

P.S. Thanks for the get well wish! Going back to work tomorrow. Ugh. But feeling great, so that's a good thing.

Your main goal should be to make your room or home as comfortable and attractive to your taste as you can. The creation of theme groups of art images is a great way to decorate your walls and your home decorating. These theme groups can be done with any combination of sizes and subjects as long as they match or contrast nicely with your wall and environment colors. http://decoration-ideas.blogspot.com .

Oh my! What a fab looking magazine. I'm going to have to see if I can get it over here. I'm totally drooling over all of those pictures. How I would LOVE a workroom like that. I work in central London and we have a newagents down the street that has a large selection of international mags, although I've never spotted a Canadian one before(although I probably wasn't really looking for one) but I'm going on my lunch break tomorrow to search the shelves! Thanks for sharing the images though.
