Since Todd Selby hit the big time, he’s been so busy photographing the rich and famous that the images at The Selby have yielded far less useable ideas than they used to, when his subjects were seriously original, eccentric, and..’er..REAL. So we were happy to spot these two usable and oddly charming ideas in his recent photo-essay of designer Yaz Bukeys live/work space in Paris:
Her wonderful, cartoonish decal fireplace…and her swell idea of hanging objects she likes on the wall withs string, picture hangers, nails.
Check out more great do-able revelations we found at The Selby:
chic rusty steel paperweight, via ‘the selby’
cool bike tape (another selby find)
fast-and-loose dining table via the selby
evocative ideas from “the best of the selby 2010″
chic, not shabby, drop cloth-draped sofa
