my room looks like Tim Burton went to town while decorating it, and then spontaneously combusted all over the walls. Since I read the book on the left two years ago, I have been trying to simplify my life an my living space. And my experience living in Europe for 7 months with only a suitcase exacerbated those desires to "simplify" and get rid of junk....especially after staying with a family who practices feng shui. YET, it's so hard! And I fail at minimalism all the time...I have to really push against my natural inclinations to complicate. Although I really like this book and it changed my perspective dramatically, frankly, I wouldn't ever want to be friends with Elaine St. James (the author of the book to the left). She would bore the hell out of me if she really practices all these things in her book.
All that to say, The Selby makes me feel better about my quirkiness and failure to simplify like Elaine St. James tells me to.

And here are some photos of rooms 'n stuff:
Other fun things said by Todd Selby were found in New York Magazine:
Are there any trends you wish would come back?
Yes. Mismatched neon socks. Fluorescent shorts. Big hair. Greased-back hair. Basically anything to do with A.C. Slater.
What's something every woman (or man) should have in her (or his) closet?
Every person should have some have some good-looking skeletons in their closet.
