AOK Apple a Day Calendar

AOK apple a day calendar designed by serviceplan

The idea is based on “Eating an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. It is part of an advertising campaign developed by the German communication agency Serviceplan for OAK, a life insurance company.

The calendar is composed 12 plexiglas cylinders. At the start of the month, you fill the right cylinder with apples. Then, you remove an apple everyday to reveal today’s date. I imagine this concept in a family kitchen. The fun factor could encourage kids to eat more fruits every day. Any ideas for a DIY option?

Stylish Plexiglas chandeliers by Incidence for the budget-conscious

Plexiglas and glass chandeliers by Incidence

Chandeliers are popular for dining rooms and the bedrooms. Crystal chandeliers are gorgeous but not everyone can afford it.

That is why I am thrilled to show you these stylish chandeliers made of Plexiglas and glass.

European flair with Incidence

The first collection is manufactured by Incidence located in France. As with many European design products, you can choose from an array of colors and chandelier models.

The design is sophisticated. I particularly enjoy the uses of 2 or 3 tones; it adds a modern twist to a classical model.

The green model with a single light would look great in a powder room. You could place 3 chandeliers in a row to dress up a long entrance hall. At only 38 ? a piece, it is not even an indulgence.

Unfortunately, I did not find a retailer in North America that carries the Incidence chandelier collection. So if you know one, feel free to pass along us this information. Follow-up story: Since then, I found a small boutique in Montreal with the chandeliers by Incidence on stock.

Lucite chandeliers by Titus at Home Depot

Canadian manufacturer Titus supplies Home Depot

I went online to find a source for affordable Lucite chandeliers. I found a few at the Canadian stores of Home Depot. For once, Canadians can buy a superb collection that is not available in the United States.

They are produced by a company from Toronto called Titus Manufacturing. They lack the French flair of the chandeliers by Incidence but they are still beautiful.

They are also available in several colors. The pink, red or green even make them suitable for a girl bedroom.

The fabric shades are a nice touch. Why not change the fabric of the shades with a beautiful patterned fabric that complement your decor? If you are unsure how to do it yourself, look online for a professional in your area. If you go to a good textile store, they make be able to recommend someone.

The budget-conscious who are looking for a cool and stylish chandelier should check these out.
