Give-away: The Selby is in your place

Last week the chicest book landed on my door stop. It was none other than the new book by Todd Selby called The Selby is in your place.


Todd Selby is a portrait, interiors and fashion photographer and illustrator. He took his love for photography and our love of wanting to know what is going in our neighbors home and produced The Selby. He started by photographing his friends in their personal spaces.


Of course his friends just exude cool. I know my home will never be on his site. I think it’s too normal, but it’s fun to see what others do in their own homes.


In flipping through the book I spotted one of my favorite interior designers home, Jonathan Adler.


Here is a peek of their content page. I love the use of illustrations instead of a traditional laundry list look.

selby content page 

Another fun touch in the book is a page of stickers!


The book is 255 pages of beautiful inspiration. Totally makes me remember to think outside the box when designing.


Of course I love to share so when they offered to send me a book I asked for an additional copy for a give-away.


Here is what you have to do to enter:


1. Make sure you are a follower of the blog.

2. Leave me a comment about whatever you like!

3. Remember to leave me an email address where I can reach you if you win.

4. If you twitter or blog about this contest on your blog you can enter again.


Anyone can enter. You don’t need to have a blog to do so.


Give-away will be open till 4/13 midnight EST.

4 is lucky also, right?! =)
I don't know if it's just my computer screen, but in the Jonathan Adler photo it looks like the man on the right is a doll. And can I have that blue rug?!!
