• Tell Your Friends

When you think about the homes of your favorite designers, artists and authors, what do you picture? Thousands of books lining the walls? Rare artifacts sitting on contemporary built-ins? A completely elegant yet eclectic museum-looking space you just couldn’t imagine calling home (but, of course, want to)? It’s virtually impossible for me to picture the inside of Kate and Andy Spade’s home (what could it possibly look like?), and now, thanks to Todd Selby, I don’t have to imagine anymore.

Todd Selby The Selby

Todd Selby, an interiors, portrait and fashion photographer and illustrator, has been sharing inspiring and glamorous interiors with the world since 2008 on his website, The Selby. What originally started as a small website of friends’ interiors, soon erupted into requests from viewers all over the world wanting their homes featured, too. Before he knew it, he was hearing from world-renowned companies regarding collaborations and ad campaigns.

So, when you go to The Selby here’s what you’re going to get: lots and lots of interior eye candy. I mean, you’re getting an insider’s view of some of the most creative individuals in the world and the spaces they call home (or work). My favorite part of these “home tours” is what Todd chooses to focus on, like a wall sculpture, light fixture or bookshelf knickknack that may typically go unnoticed. Sometimes he just centers in on the smaller pieces and you’re dying to know why.

Let’s take a look at some interiors, shall we?

Kate and Andy Spade’s Home in New York City:

My eyes just run wild when I look at this living room. I immediately notice the artwork above the mantel. Then I notice the yellow floor lamp, then all the pops of red (on the pillows, window seat, area rug). It’s pure sophistication.

Abigail perfectly balances a deeper gray palette by integrating bright splashes of color in a contemporary and sophisticated way.

    I want to present a challenge: The Ultra-Quiet Home. Ideal for authors, actors, researchers or anyone tired from noise pollution.
    ALL bdrms. to be sound-proofed inc. doors, windows, cabinets, closets, etc. No doorbell but a soft tone when front, back, patio, basement & garage doors are opened. Quiet kit./laun. appliances. Kit. the MAIN entertaining rm.. As quiet a small outdoor space can possibly be.
    GREEN most of the way, "med.-end" funiture, plush, sturdy, comfortable. Serene baths.
    Zen furnishings, minimalist art, pops of color, casual yet elegant home.
