Check out the website of Todd Selby… now!


You are going to hate me for this because for the next couple of hours, you’ll be staring at your screen. Photographer, illustrator and journalist Todd Selby’s website The Selby is extremely addictive. His photographic portraits of homes and the people who live there are very inspiring.

If online is not enough for you, you might want to consider Todd Selby’s book, available here at Homevoyeurs. 

The Selby Is in Your Place was conceived when fashion and interiors photographer Todd Selby began taking portraits of dynamic and creative people—authors, musicians, artists, and designers—in their home environments and posting them on his web site. Nosy by nature, he wanted to see how personal style was reflected in private spaces. Lucky for us, he found his answer in the color-rich and eclectic quarters of a diverse group of subjects, including Simon Doonan and Jonathan Adler, Faris Rotter, Andre Walker, and Olivier Zahm, in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Tokyo, Sydney, and London. Each profile is accompanied by Selby’s watercolor portraits of the subjects and objects from their homes, and illustrated questionnaires, which Selby asks each sitter to fill out. This book consists of over thirty profiles, many of which have never-before-seen, selected exclusively for the book. The result is a collection of unique spaces bursting with energy and personality that together create a colorful hodgepodge of inspirational interiors.

Book review: Prefab Houses


As you might know, I have a thing with prefab homes. Always have. I love the idea of a cleverly designed home, fit for a contemporary lifestyle, put up in a matter of weeks, sometimes even days. You can imagine how thrilled I was when I got this marvellous Taschen Book ‘Prefab Homes’ as a gift from friends. I am helping them with a design and install for a new bathroom and I recently had my birthday but still out of the blue they surprised me with this marvellous gift.The book is written by Arnt Cobbers and Oliver Jahn, two well-known architecture and design authors. I can highly recommend it. It’s the perfect coffee table book, with tons and tons of inspiring pictures and stories about various prefab home designs and their designers.

Nate Berkus collection for Calico


By now you all should know I have a bit of a crush on Nate Berkus. I love his work, and he is very easy on the eye. So is his collection for American fabric company Calico

Nate Berkus Fabric Collection for Calico

Nate Berkus Fabric Collection for Calico

The Nate Berkus Fabric Collection is inspired by Nate’s many travels and his own life.

“Your home should tell your story. Memories framed on a wall. What you love within easy reach. Fabric is one of the best ways I know to layer your rooms with the color and patterns you love most. Wether one yard for a pillow or ten for a chair, let the pattern you love be what you live with” – Nate

Calico is organising a contest on facebook where you can win his book The Things That Matter. I suggest you join, but if you don’t win, you can always buy the book in the Homevoyeurs Webshop!

Nate Berkus Chicago abode not selling well…


A little over a year after it was featured right here on Homevoyeurs.com, Mr Berkus further reduced the price of his Chicago apartment to $1,890,000. Still hefty, but considering its original asking price of $2,650,000, a pretty decent discount! I absolutely love the style of Nate Berkus, which was obvious from my post last year. For a high-profile designer, he changed very little since, as I do believe these are newer pictures. But when it’s right, it’s right, and boy is it ever.
