Eye ‘Candy’ – Candice Olson style!

If I had to pick one single designer as a favourite it would be Candice Olson.


Hands down. No competition.

I love her style – the bling, the colours, the textures.

Simply Divine.

In honour of Ms. Olson, today’s post is all eye candy.











Check out Candice – here design tv, her books, her dvds –  here.

Does anyone else have a favourite designer? Who is it? What do you like about their style?

    Ooo Ooo Ooo!!! Me too! Me too! I LOVE Candice Olsen! I even applied to have a makeover done on our basement and when I (not surprisingly) didn’t hear back I just used her inspiration to to it myself! :) No wonder I love your taste!

    Hi Dean & Shannon,
    Thanks for this post.. I’m a fan too !
    I’m looking for an accent that Candice used in one of her make overs. She created a privacy panel made of silver ball chain on a track. I wonder if you have any suggestions on where to look for that kinda ball chain. Look forward to your input. Thanks !!

      Hi Ami,

      I am glad you found our post! Love Candice!

      As far as I can find, the metal beaded screen came from Shimmer Screen (www.shimmerscreen.com) in New York. Again, that’s just as far as I can find. You could potentially DIY one. Have you done a google search?

      Hope that helps…and thank you again for commenting.

    Thanks !
    Will check out Shimmer Screen. Yes, I googled last night and found some sites selling screens, but I was not sure if I should order for unknown sites. Plus the pictures were not clear so I cant make out what I am ordering.

    I would be happy to DIY one for my use, coz I need a custom height..First the chain and I guess the track would come next… to fit the ball chain. So I guess I should start hunting for a store that sells the ball chain.. any thoughts?
