Trick or Treat...

I realize that Halloween isn't technically a holiday, but if it was it would most definitely be one of my favourites...when else can one dress up in random costumery, beg for candy and not be sent to a loony bin? With costumes and candy also comes time for decorating...personally I have had a large pumpkin sitting on our front steps for almost a month now (yes that's how excited I am) but even that's not enough...I need more skulls, more glitter, more mini-pumpkins, more black and orange, I need more Halloween!!! So in the spirit of ghoolish fun, here are some really funky Halloween decor inspirations from Canadian House & Home...
Aren't these wonderful? Now if you'll excuse me I am off to carve that giant pumpkin on my steps...Happy halloween everyone!

From Paris to New York...

My obsession with shopbop lookbooks grows...oh my! This latest one, which features See by Chloe, is particularly gorgeous, not only for the clothes but also for the mood that the photos create...which, incidentally capture the atmosphere of fall in the city brilliantly (whether it is in Paris, or New York or even in Ottawa)...sigh, perhaps looking this editorial over and over again will make me love fall again? I feel myself falling...head over heels...I think it's working...enjoy...

Whites & Brights...

The weekend was bright but it was followed by a dreary, rainy, dark and cloudy Monday, which made me appreciate white walls and bright accents...here are some gorgeous interiors that do the same...it makes me happy, no?
I am afraid that this is all from me for today...lots of reading, writing and general boring school stuff to worry about for a while...until next time, happy Tuesday everyone...

Shipley and Halmos @ home...

It's been a while since I did a proper home decor post, so I thought I would remedy this by posting the latest in home awesomeness from TheSelby...this particular abode belongs to NYC-based designers, Jeff Halmos and Sam Shipley of Shipley and Halmos...it's an amazingly eclectic space with crazy windows and natural light and some extremely lovely and creative details (my favourite kind)...personal favourite? The art wall with mismatched and seemingly random photographs, paintings and other images (last photo)...see for yourself and enjoy...
These seriously inspire me to get my arse into gear and finish up our little place...right now it feels like it's never going to be done...perhaps I should just do a post about the details that we have finished...perhaps, I will...perhaps...

Fall and Winter a la Le Chateau...plus a giveaway...

Lately I have been in a bit of fashion funk...it's too cold to wear my lovely early fall garments but way to warm (and depressing a thought) to bring out my winter coats from the depths of my closet...what's a girl to do? Scour the web for inspiration of course! And that is exactly what I have been doing with the limited time I have as of late...here is what I found, a little Canadian gem, Le Chateau, has some great lookbooks with some really great fashion inspiration perfect for the current weather...plus it's accessible and affordable (a big plus, well actually 2!)...below are two of my favourite looksbooks from their site...oh and if you are in the city this weekend, Le Chateau is putting on a fashion event at the Rideau Shopping Centre, complete with style advice, drinks, music and more...plus if you "like" Le Chateau on facebook or follow them on twitter and leave a comment with your name and email address right here on Love K, you can win a $25 gift certificate towards anything in the store...happy shopping everyone!
