The Selby - one day it will be in my place!!

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.
