Title: The Selby is in Your Place
Author: Todd Selby
Todd Selby seems to know all the coolest people. As a longtime fashion and interiors photographer, it’s only to be expected that he’d be welcome in the homes of Karl Lagerfeld, Simon Doonan, Christian Louboutin, and Helena Christensen. But Todd also just seems to know crazy, quirky people, most of whom have the most crazy, kooky, splendid, lovely, drool-inducing houses and apartments I’ve ever seen. Take for instance Karl Lagerfeld’s jaw-dropping library or Simon Doonan’s giant foot sculpture that doubles as a ping-pong chair.
Not really an interior design book and not really just a photography book, The Selby in is Your Place is nevertheless just a book you want. It makes you excited about your home, opening doors in your mind as you start to imagine if your own apartment could ever look this cool. But it’s something about Todd’s eye, his genius for capturing moments and finding angles that wake up spaces and make them seem extraordinary. Oh and did I mention the book comes with stickers? Yeah, there are stickers.
