Peace out.

people at home

Photographer Todd Selby has this blog called “In Your Space”.  From what I gather (hmm), he’s photographing people in their own personal space.

 

I think it’s brilliant. In fact it’s something I have always toyed with adding to my website- pictures of my clients in their home… weird, but true.  I fear not everyone would cooperate… or that I’d be slightly embarrassed to ask, whatever the reason I never pursued it.

Do you read Layers of Meaning? That’s where I found this, you should go look/read, and based on her blog post title, sounds like she’ll have more Selby tomorrow.

 

 

Raoul Textiles

Raoul Textiles are gorgeous, I sent Courtney home with a couple samples… one of which was the fabric on the sofa below. (it’s Amijao linen #909B82, for fellow tradespeople who might be interested)

 

Beds-and-skirtsI love the repetition of the same fabric on the draperies. Love the grasscloth too. (my grasscloth is going in my pantry on Friday!) I also like the frames over the sofa.  This image is from Elle Decor, July/August 2007, photographed by Pieter Estersohn.
