We wanted to capture creative individuals – and Etsy fans! – inside their personal spaces, because everyone likes interior inspiration/a good ol’ snoop (hiyas #interiorinspo tag on Instagram) right?
So who better to collaborate with than world-famous photographer, Todd Selby, creator of The Selby, documenting people in their places in his impeccably cool, candid style? We asked Todd to pay a visit to the UK homes and work spaces of five folk who either make art that they sell on Etsy or who buy art from Etsy. Some were a mixture of both!
You can see Todd’s take over on The Selby, plus a fun behind-the-scenes video, and we’re going to be showcasing additional images in a series right here on the UK blog – last week we got a glimpse inside the beautiful bohemian home of vintage seller Sarah Thomas.
This week, we’re snooping inside Etsy seller Joanna Pybus’ quirky and colourful London space, serving as both her home and workshop…
“My decorating style is quite eclectic, with a lot of colour and print. I like to mix textures and patterns but also like it to feel cosy, especially as my home is in an industrial space. I always want people to feel at home when they are in my place, I would hate for guests to not feel welcome!”
“I think the look and feel of my work space shares the same aesthetic as my living space, however my work space needs to be much more functional, so work tops and machines have to be clear of nik-naks!”
“My bedroom makes me smile every time I look at it – it’s only a small 4ft tall mezzanine room above my studio, with a bed, a table and a chair, but its always so cosy and welcoming after a long day downstairs in the studio!”
