Gather your articles; twigs for your nest


An amazing site with interior photography- not your average 'shiny mag' homes, but real, soulful, eclectic, jumbled, tangles of creative homes. It blew me away. One of the projects I've always had in the back of my mind was to start a home decor magazine that was all about handmade homes- real, artistic, eclectic, jumbled...


So many people I know live in places like these, they're true nests, places that don't cost thousands of dollars to create, where most of the decor is junk found on the side of the road, where someone in a rollneck jumper hasn't come along with big books of samples and the latest B&O catalgue. The kind of people featured on the Selby are the true heros of home decoration.

ooh, this is fabulous! my home reflects many years of collecting, travel, and my love of old and odd stuff. the home magazines make me feel kind of crazy-everything matches and looks so new! this doesn't make sense to me. why buy a new table when great aunt jet's isn't being used or i found this great chair in the dumpster and painted it robin's egg blue? i just can't change. i am glad other people feel the same!
