The Selby




Do you ever feel like you are too vanilla? Just too plain white bread? Most houses we see photographed are beautiful but similar. Don't you sometimes crave a little crazy? That's where The Selby comes in. Fabulous photos by Todd Selby. Be sure to check it out. Here is a little sample...
















There are so many great photos, but the site said I better not use them without permission, so I just had to find ones off other people's blogs. (I'm a rule follower.) Every home is so chock full of personality they will make you happy or at least entertain you. Even if it is not your style, you will find fresh ideas to inspire you. Or make you feel even more bland and Traditional than you already are. I know. I sat looking at the pictures in my J. Crew shorts, white peasant top and gladiator sandals. If you have a tutu and some Converse high tops you might want to put them on before viewing...Enjoy!!

For more fun photos check out Jenny's blog My Favorite and My Best.

pictures from: the Pursuit Aesthetic, Made by Girl, Paper Mag and Apartment Therapy.

  1. Yup, I feel super vanilla now. But those are fun images, and I bet that their baby is going to grow up to be very creative and spunky.

  4. I love the little girl's room! Although, frankly, I have a low tolerance for clutter, so it would probably drive me batty!

  5. Great post. I love those rooms full of color and personality.

    I love bold color, but I tell you I always tend to feel a bit too vanilla myself.

  8. I suffer from Blah Disorder too. I love color, I just always seem to be as neutral as they come. I need to branch out. I need a tutu too!

  9. I always adore that little girl's room-- the colorful tutus completely do me in! They are so dreamy and seem to just spark imagination.

  10. Fun Fun Fun till her Daddy took her T Bird away! Love the color, the fun, the mish mash that seems to have continuity and something I could never pull off... its intriquing!

  11. I'm a color gal too....I LOVE the simple all-white/cream look, but I seem to be drawn to color....loved the petticoats hanging from the ceiling.
