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, Helena Christensen, 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 are never-before-seen, selected exclusively for the book. The result is a collection of unique spaces bursting with energy and personality that creates a colorful hodgepodge of inspirational interiors.

Grace and Kenyan are two New Yorkers who recently fled the city for life on a farm. The farm seems like a million miles from NYC but it is just a couple of hours away. They still have a small apartment in downtown Manhattan but they get out to their country home every weekend. 2
