in my room (she'll get to you..)

a.'s post has been holding down the fort over the past couple of days whilst i've been being very good at getting on with work and getting relatively early nights. but chh, all that good behaviour had to end sometime soon!

there is no denying that the selby has catered for the guilty pleasure of curtain twitching that we all thought we were hiding. it's pretty incredible that his site has become so well known in such a short space of time.

rather than ranting on about the wonders of the site (we all know, yadda, yadda..), I thought I'd take the plunge and capture my new room with some snaps.

pretty scary to have these out there for all to see.
and just as a little piss take (of myself, not mr selby!..) the compulsory paper questionnaire at the end..

This has to be one of my favourite posts of yours. I used to be a massive fan of Changing Rooms back in the day so I love this kind of thing.
Great to read a conversation between you and you as well! ha ha

Mimi said...

I love watching other people's rooms without knowing them personal because it tells so much about their character.

The Saunders collection is a slight departure, but it looks to me like a continuation of his Resort collection.

beccajanie said...

gorgeous pictures! And your little quiz with yourself is hilariously awesome. Great blog!

coco said...

I do agree on Blair's matchy-ness. I would never want to dress like her but she is (as far as a fake person can be) very commited to her look.
By the way this post is just as good second time viewing!

I've been a fan of your blog for a while now.

I just started blogging actually and I would love to trade links with you. :D

dw said...

i took all these photos of my room to do a selby-esque thing, but then was frightened off by the intimacy of it.

i think you did it just wonderfully, and i love those quotes you have! your room is lovely.
