The Selby + Karen Walker

My beloved copy of 'The Selby is in Your Place,' sitting happily on a MintSix hot pink multi coloured Ikat cushion. Only a few of these beauties left, click here to purchase and don't forget to check out our other goodies at www.mintsix.com

Todd Selby is a portrait, interiors and fashion photographer. His website, 'The Selby' offers an insider’s view of creative individuals in their personal spaces. 

Todd has collaborated with huge companies such as Louis Vuitton, FENDI, Nike, Microsoft and Ikea to name a few. 

Todd's first book, 'The Selby Is In Your Place' was released in 2010, I purchased it back then, and it's been well read by me & others many times over. In short, it's a superb book and well worth the 30 bucks I paid for it. 

Todd captures amazing images of a diverse range of people (some famous, some not) in their homes, apartments and studios. He manages to successfully capture the energy and personalities of the spaces and the people who live or work within them. 

Here are a few snaps of Karen Walker and Mikhail Gherman's cool Auckland home that was featured on 'The Selby' a couple of years ago.

Todd has just released another book, 'Edible Selby'. I can't wait to get my hands on this one! In this book he features photographs of the kitchens, gardens, homes, and restaurants of many creatives who work in the culinary world. Each culinary creative shares a signature recipe and the book also comes with magnets for your fridge. I'm sold.

The Edible Selby is available to purchase online in New Zealand here

And just in case you feel you didn't see enough of the awesomeness that is Karen & Mickail's home, here are another few pics that were featured in 'Inside Out' magazine.

  1. Love The Selby - I still haven't gotten around to getting the first book and for $30 it's a no-brainer! Edible Selby too! Great to see these recent shots of Karen's home.. so much style, love the black mosaic tiled bath. x

    1. I agree, the bath is outstanding, I love a bit of mosaic tiling action in a home! x

  2. Wow! Fantastic!

    I've seen some of those pictures very recently, but here there are more family photos.

    1. Missed this comment Una, sorry! Love the family pics here too, super relaxed. x
