At Home with Taschen...

How happy was I when I got my most recent The Selby update only to reveal the home of Angelika Taschen, book editor extraordinaire of one of my favourite publishing houses, Taschen...very happy indeed...it is really neat to actually see what the house of such an amazing women looks like...although abit sparse for me in some of the rooms, her library is amazing (love the colours) and the fact that she lives in Berlin, trumps any kind of sparseness in my books...I included some of me favourite shots of her space below, along with some of my favourite Taschen books which are currently residing on my Christmas wish list...enjoy...
...ahhh Berlin, how I miss you so...
 ...love the colour and all the books...you know you are a geek when...
 ...the one thing I really appreciate about this space is that although Taschen's style is very minimalist, she manages to always have a burst of colour in her decor...
 ...love those boots, perfect for a Canadian winter...
 ...ahhh the tea...a woman after my own heart...
...my personal Taschen Book wish list...
That's it from me for today...hope you are all having a lovely beginning of the week, until tomorrow or the next time...Happy Monday Everyone!

Details...

We have been living in our new home for almost 8 months now and it's still not done...a perpetual work in progress, but we are getting there...as much as I would love to share the space with you all, and soon hopefully I will, for now I think I will settle for showing off some itty-bitty details...those little things that make a house a home...enjoy...
 ...my ever-growing magazine collection...the holiday issues are coming in-excited!
 ...lately I have been obsessed with vintage glass containers, these are some I managed to pick up recently...
 ...couldn't resist but take a close-up of the last remaining muffin that a good friend of mine made and they were amazing...I am in the process of trying to get the recipe so I can share it here...
 ...some kitchen literature I always seem to come back to so it's always close at hand...
 ...don't know what it is but I have a fascination with skulls, here is a skull-bank I picked up in Brooklyn this past September...
 ...a rhinestone mini-skull, who could resist?
 ...stocking up the mini-bar for the holidays...
 ...one of my favourite finds from Antrhopologie...love that store...
 ...every girl likes to display her trinkets, my favourite way is to use vintage containers and glass jars...
...a beautiful vintage sugar bowl and saucer I found in a local thrift shop...
Hope you enjoyed the itty-bitty mini tour of some of the details of my new(er) home...hopefully I will have more to share once we finish up all the other little things that need to be done...until then, happy Thursday everyone...

Marc Jacobs: A Certain Allure...

It's no secret, I love Marc Jacobs ~ his deigns, his ads, himself (hey, why not?) and that is why I was particularly drawn to this amazing shopbop lookbook editorial, featuring Marc by Marc Jacobs designs (hey, why not?)...it does after all have a certain allure...no pun intended...but seriously, I am loving how it traces a day in the life of the model, amazing clothes and all (that red dress is to die for!) and I particularly love the atmosphere the photos evoke, especially the ones taken in the evening...so lovely and so comforting...so sit back and enjoy...hey, why not?

Coveted...

Once again The Coveteur has given me something to drool and pine over...sigh...this time it's the home (and insane Chanel collection) from Toronto architect and interior designer Dee Dee Taylor Eustace...boy oh boy would I love to go 'shopping' in this lady's closet! See for yourself, and...enjoy...
...I never thought a closet could make me swoon, but alas here it is...
 ...my house slippers are old and ratty, must upgrade immediately...
 ...yes, let's!
 ...there are those adorable Chanel slippers again...I am officially jealous...
...so anyone up for a house-swap? Seriously, this home is phenomenal, mind you I think that may just be the Chanel talking! Either way, thanks to The Coveteur, I now have a reason to go out and get myself a new pair of stylin' slippers...Happy Friday everyone!
Love K
