Jacqueline Appel’s home is exactly where you’d imagine a ballerina would live. The ballet dancer, VH1 and MTV fashion stylist, jewellery and interior designer’s chic Toronto home has all the elements of luxury: pillow shams made of Pucci scarves, silk slippers displayed as art, Venetian Murano glass chandeliers, Fortuny silk lamps, and high-gloss finishes such as polished floors and lacquered ceilings.

    Hello,

    I noticed Jacqueline has a rolling tea cart (glass and nickel) in the living room area. Does anyone know where I can get that piece?

    I’m pretty sure I saw it at CABAN a few years ago, but now that they’re gone…

    (I live in Montreal).

  • Hello Montreal, I believe Jacqueline’s bar cart is vintage, from Decodame: http://www.decodame.com

    Hello TIG:

    Thank you for your kind reply about Jacqie’s rolling tea cart possiby being a vintage piece from Decodame.

    I may be wrong, but I believe jacqie’s is new.The metal frame on the vintage ones tends to be more robust and rounded, the frame on the new versions are flatter (and much shinier!). Is there any way to ask Jacqie herself?

    Best,
    Montreal

  • Hello bon ton,

    I had looked up the StyleSource in the back of the publication that originally featured Jacqueline’s place and they had said it was vintage . . .

    If you happened to have an image of the rolling tea cart and could send it to me, it may prove easier to track it down. In the mean time, I will try to locate Jacqueline’s e-mail address.

    Warmest regards,
    TIG
