Apologies for the lack of posts recently (as pointed out by my good friend Sarah). Work has been busy and so has life. Anyways I thought I'd share some pictures from brilliant and quirky interior design blog The Selby. The Selby go round to the houses of interesting people - often designers and performers and take pictures. Some people are famous. Most are not. Here are a few that inspired me.
Guy Blakeslee and Maximilla Lukacs. I like to imagine that these two live in a cabin in the forest in a hippy community where it's still the 70's.
Mike and Jen: this couple have done what I always believed should be done with the boring downstairs toilet. make it a colourful place full of things to look at. The downstairs loo is so often neglected in people's houses but actually it's an opportunity to go wild!
Celestine and Harry: Writing a poem on your wall hidden by clothes is lovely and whimsical.
Louis Vuitton family home (love this building!): Check out the gorgeous art nouveau fireplace. Jealous!
Simon and Martin: I love the way the picture above the fireplace reflects the heat from the fireplace and gives the room a warm cosy glow in a modern way.
Jamie Isaia and Anthony: This is the perfect study - lined, crammed with books with a traditional desk in the middle - almost buried.
Malene Barnett in Brooklyn. I love the colours she uses here - the way they somehow suggest the heat of Africa.
